We had our dinner at this lovely restaurant. Upon entering they greet you with a glass of wine. The menu was varied, and the food was free and tasty. The service was very good, and we could eat earlier than the regular time people eat in Argentina. The interior of the place was beautiful. You will not be disappointed.

El Patacon is not far outside Bariloche, on Bustillo (Km. 7), but it's really worth going. They will treat you to a glass of aperitif or freshly squeezed orange juice to welcome you. I got to sit by the window and enjoyed the view of Lake Nahuel Huapi. They have several rooms, including one with a big chimney and chandeliers.... More

We walked in and saw two lambs grilling in the fireplace. Wow! Everyone in the group was hoping that was dinner and it was! Tasty. Efficient. Finished with Suicide Chocolate dessert. Decadence defined!

It's a fun place but still has the ambience or romance, if that's what you looking for, with wonderful choices of meals, service was excellent, try the Kobe steak it's so great!!

Stopped here with our Tauck tour of 39. Food was great, service was impeccable, and the atmosphere was inviting. This was EVERYTHING I've ever heard about Argentinean beef.....flavorful, tender and too large of a portion. Desert was great too. I'd return here in a heartbeat.

My husband and I were recommended to go to dinner here by our hotel. We looked at trip advisor quickly and thought we would try it out, but that was our worst decision during our 3 weeks in Argentina. We had reservations for 1030 but when we arrived our table was not ready. We were greeted with a welcome drink... More

We had a reservation at 11 and when we got there they said the a table wasnt available and that they would give us one as soon as one became available. 1 hour later still no table and nobody even tried to apologize for the wait or tell us what was going on. Food was overpriced for the quality. I... More

We were referred to this restaurant by our hotel only to be terribly disappointed! This has got to be the worst $100 meal we have ever had. To start my carpaccio was served frozen on the plate and my partners mussels were less than fantastic. We had been recommended to eat the Patagonian braised lamb and this is the main... More
