A must in Bariloche

After traveling for over three weeks in Patagonia, I have to say that this is the best steak place I had visited. I went there three times and suggest going with the recommendations of the servers in terms of the cut for the day. Service is very good.

This was one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. After a thirty hour bus ride from El Calafate, my wife and I got into Bariloche and stopped into this restaurant before we'd even checked into our hotel. I'm so glad we did because it was exactly what we wanted. The steak was EPIC and the rest of the... More

After spending 4 days in Buenos Aires and not finding "the" perfect steak, we flew to Bariloche and after picking up our rental car, we drove into town for lunch. We decided to try El Boliche de Alberto after reading a positive review in one of my guidebooks. We ordered the full size (500g) cut of ojo de bife (cooked... More

This place us a classic steakhouse. I ordered a large filet and got 3 large pieces of meat. Good wine list. Great service and low orices hempseed to USA. Central grill in restaurant so you can see the cook. Salad and potatoes were delicious. Enjoy!

Boliche de Alberto is the go to for a classic, always on point, great for any sort of occasion - being intimate dinner or larger groups. They know what they are doing, and how to do it very well. All the locations are great. Rib eye is always superb here, fries as well. The copa Alberto is unmatched in Bariloche.

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
