Hands down, the best restaurant in Bariloche. Alto el Fuego is good, but a more typical good Argentina steakhouse, vs. La Salamandra that goes the next level with more creative food, albeit a small menu....but that is the charm. This is where the locals go.....the front door is locked, but a loud knock on the door and must have reservations... More

....go to this restaurant. My wife and I were looking for somewhere to eat one evening in Bariloche and saw the great reviews of this restaurant on trip advisor. Noting the recommendation to book in advance, I dropped the owners a quick email, and they got back to me literally a minute later to confirm the booking. It turned out... More

We had our hotel make reservations here as we read that these were a must given the small size of the restaurant. It opened at 7:30 and being Americans we wanted to eat earlier than the Latins. When we arrived we had the place to ourselves until another American couple arrived. So even though the place is hard to get... More

By far the best restaurant we experienced in Bariloche, and the best experience overall in the entire city! We read TripAdvisor reviews ahead of time and yes, you need to email or call them for a reservation. They will get back to you promptly, and the reason they do this is the small intimate environment of the restaurant. The dynamic... More

We went two nights in a row, knowing our last night in Bariloche would be a disappointment after a magnificent first night dinner. Great place that is put together with great care to re-create a traditional pulperia, with a simple approach to fresh and good food and a no-nonsense approach to great wine. Run with passion by the owners.

We tried to find a table for 3 days in a row before we finally succeeded. If you arrive to the restaurant without a reservation expect the owner to tell you through the intercom there are no tables, without bothering even to open the door. Weird... This made us think whether we even want to have dinner there but reading... More

As a family business, you can feel their personality on the simple menu but great food. Empanadas were great, even my half vegetarian wife wanted more of them (a sign of excellence). The steak was the best i tried so far in argentina and the prices are very reasonable. This restaurant just got into my favorite list, thank you

This was by far one of our favorite meals in Argentina. It was such a nice change from the overly touristy or kitschy parillas, and felt very authentic and cozy. It only had about 14 tables so make a reservation. The menu is limited which we loved, just the basics, which is exactly what we want at a steak place!... More

Delicious meal, wine from heaven. Empanadas just marvelous, hongos (mushrooms) unbeattable! Owners run the place, with warm and huge smiles. A must in Bariloche.
