Marvelous roasted lamb

We ate here with a small group of fellow travelers. This is one of those places in Argentina where they roast whole lamb on vertical spits over an open fire pit you can see from the window. As tourists, we had never experienced lamb prepared this way before and it was marvelous. A rich smokey... read more

We stopped in here during Siesta (~1-5pm) one day to grab a snack and a beer each after reading the sign out front with a big 'Happy Hour.' We went in to get the 2 for 1 beer deal (as is standard with all other resto/bars/pubs we visited during Happy Hour in Bariloche). Upon asking further, this restaurant stated that... More

While in Bariloche I ate at two Parrillas, La Charrasca (My favorite) and Don Molina. It was New Year’s Day and my dining options were limited in Bariloche. Don Molina is located close the Pan American Hotel. It is an impressive building with a large dinning room. The dinning room has a high ceiling, animal skins, what nots on the... More

I went to Dom Molina for dinner with my family and although we the food was good, the service was very poor. When we got to order something, it didn't take so long for us to get what we had ordered but the difficult part was to get a waiter's (in our case a waitress') attention to order. Sometimes I...

Whilst perhaps a little pricey, all four of us each had some wonderful steaks, the best we've come across in our three weeks in Argentina so far, accompanied by a great red wine. Would certainly eat there again were I staying longer in Bariloche.

Once we had read positive reviews about the restaurant, we tried it for dinner. We ordered the famous Cordeiro patagonico and steak, and sincerely got disappointed with it (maybe because we were expecting too much). Staff was ok and the place is impersonal, looking like Brazilian churrascarias that we see around.

That's wonderful! The best Argentinian food that we ate! Excellent place to eat Cordeiro patagonico and the best wines in Bariloche.

On a 2 week trip through South America we found that the steak was a little over-hyped. Most steaks were good, but only two were outstanding and Don Molina served one of them. We both chose a specialty of the house, filet mignon served in a peppercorn sauce with a timbale of red peppers and onions on the side. Talk... More
