I lived in Bariloche for five years already, and I can say Rapa Nui has most of my favourite pastries and teas, as a nice atmosphere to be. But unfortunately, I've had my worst experiences as a customer there. Right now, I've been sitting for half an hour, with a dirty table the previous customers left (and when leaving, pointing...

After my afternoon strolls around the city or farther out, I like to go to this beautifully located coffee shop. It also has -arguably- the best ice cream in town and great chocolate. Actually, the family business started with the elaboration of chocolate and added the coffee and the ice cream as business went up. In the back there is... More

It is a well-known name in town and many people would recommend their chocolate as one of the best in town (this is a chocolate factory as well). They have ice cream and other goodies. On the other hand, I did not find this a place I would visit twice. There are better options in Bariloche, it's worth asking about... More

Crowded and noisy. not much space between tables. Bathroom lines, you have to wait in line for bathroom use. Coffee to expensive.

This manufactor of chocolates in all kinds of flavors, shapes and sizes is absolutely superb. Every time I am in Bariloche I have to go to Rapanui to enjoy the cafe-facility. They offer fantastic cakes, ice-cream, coffee, etc...and the taste is magnificent. I recommend the ice-cream with 80% cocoa...delicious....but they are all nice....:-) I enter there every afternoon just to... More

A fantastic place with delicious and different kinds of chocolats with a huge variety and selection of chocolats, probably the best in Bariloche. They also have a very good tea house. The exchange rate there might be the best in town and the prices seem very reasonable.

The ice cream flavor, Dulce de Leche, is something to die for, if you like chocolate ice cream. Never had anything this good. Had to return there the next day for another helping! The place is packed. No wonder.

Don't look any further, this is the place! Everything is delicious. The chocolate is the best I've tried in Bariloche. Yes, it might be pricier than the other shops, but it is totally worth it. I brought home couple of boxes with truffles and everyone who tried them was surprised that they came from Argentina. Do yourself a favor and... More

Yes, there are many chocolate shops in Bariloche and no, I haven't been to all of them, but honestly, after I tried the ice cream in this place, I just kept going back. It truly is heavenly. The chocolate is also incredible of course and today I went through to the café at the back and had a coffee and... More
