I won't repeat in detail....but this is an excellent choice if you're staying a bit outside of Bariloche (which I also highly recommend). They send you to a welcome bar when you walk in for a complimentary drink (nice touch) then I had my choice of where to sit. Good option for dining alone (my... read more

We should have looked at the menu before accepting the complimentary welcome drink. The prices were very high in comparison to most other restaurants in Bariloche. Ignoring the fact that the restaurant was hot and that the electricity kept going on and off, we found the oversized, dining area unappealing. The meat in the empanadas was a mixture of beef...

Disappointing overall. The food was fine but much more expensive than most places that we have eaten in Argentina. Four of us shared 4 beef empanadas which were large and tasty, a nice salad, two orders of spit toasted lamb and a bottle of Malbec (which is kept in their main room which was about 85 degrees, bad for the...

I hadn't eaten beef in the past 6 years, but heard so many great things about the beef in Argentina that I decided to give it a try. I ordered tenderloin in mustard sauce. I was unimpressed, as the tenderloin was not as tender as I remember it from the past, and the sauce was overpowering. May be another 6... More

Went here again. The food is very good and the ambiance and the view over the lake are excellent. Service is also very good.

I've been here a couple of times now, normally when friends are coming to Bariloche, as it's my favorite restaurant to go with some friends. Excellent food, very good service and excellent wine options.

For its size, El Patacon is an excellent restaurant. It has a large number of tables but the food is refined and the service is good. Wine selection is extensive. We ate at this restaurant 3 times during our stay as it was so close to our hotel and was consistently excellent. The Kobe beef was the star dish. The... More

This restaurant is beautiful and the food excellent! We were offered a welcome drink and a small starter compliments of the chef. I had steak and my husband had lamb. Beautiful view of lake Argentino.

Meal starts with a welcome drink (cassis and white wine). Large selection of typical Argentinian meals, well prepared with extensive wine list.

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel staff and we were not disappointed! The place is gorgeous, the food is amazing (order steak and Argentinian Malbec). English menu is available and English is well spoken there. Will return on our next trip!
