One of the best meals you'll ever have. All-time favorite.

This is one of my favorite places of all time. Had come here years previously as a poor student upon hearing that it's the best meal in town and was blown away. Returned with family and blew them away too. Open parilla, unbelievable steak and fries, and just simply put, the best. 110%, absoloodle!

We tried the new venue on Mitre street, not well known yet, probably, since it was always more than half empty. The lamb was overcooked, or re-heated, but on a second visit we tried the rump steak and it was delicious. As always, one serving of lamb plus salad, and the next day half a serving of rump steak plus... More

Great food, and good environment. Portions are good size, and big enough to share. My only complain is that the staff is very standoffish. I understand they open at 8 pm, but we were freezing outside, and they did not move to open the door one minute before. Overall a good experience, but they get 4 only because of their... More

My fiancé and I went here once, and then we just kept coming back (even though our airbnb host assured us we would have spectacular meals at other places in town, too). We definitely got a touch of parilla fever. The ojo de bife and the bife de chorizo are sensational. Cooked to perfection, tender, very flavorful fat. We got... More

There are two Boliche de Alberto in Bariloche - one that serves meat and one for pasta. We went to the Pasta place and I ordered the lasagna. It looked great, it was a huge portion, but the lasagna contained some weird, disgusting ham/sausage (which was awful in combination with bolognese sauce and just doesn't belong into a lasagna). Also,... More

The rumors are true, these places do fantastic beef. I had tried both chorizo de life and lomo, and I must say they were both exquisite. Contrary to what is commonly said, the lomo is just as worthwhile as the 'more tasty' alternatives as chorizo and ojo de bife. Salad was nice too. Only didn't really like the atmosphere there,...

Honest and large portions of meat mainly. If you want to eat empanadas, meat, French fries and house salad this is the place to go. No bookings taken, arrive at 8 if you want to find a table. No credit cards taken. Quite noisy

When in Bariloche, go here if you are looking for a good cut of beef. The rib eye and the chorizo are recommended. We had the rib eye and it was delicious. You can order the cuts in either a half portion or a full portion. A half portion was more than enough. Everything is served a la carte. You... More

This place is a staple of Bariloche. They focus on grilled meats and grilled meats. They have other foods, like salads and sides, but what they do well is their meats. The place gets packed very quickly. They don’t open until 8pm and when we arrived at 8:02 about 50% of the place was filed and when we left around... More
