I was a bit put off by all of the vegetarian reviews- to be clear, they do have vegetarian options, but they also have meat dishes. The pot pies are great and are HUGE- definitely share!

Our favorite meal in El Calafate. Started with warm crusty bread. Huge mixed salad with lots of veggies. Then a cassoulet of rice and veggies as well as a lentil stew with bacon and chorizo. The chorizo I didnt care for. Was easy to pick out. Portions were very large. We should only have had one entree to go with... More

Liked the service and the vegetarian and vegan options were great. Highly recommend it. Vegan Lasagnia was very good. Bread and salads were fresh and tasty

I was looking forward to eating here after reading about it in our guide book and on our hotel's recommendation but it was a bit of a let down. The best bit was the warm bread that was served when we sat down (really delicious). We ordered a main dish each which was too much - the plates were huge... More

This restaurant is pretty unique in Calafate: vegetarian, creative and colourful but still feeling at home...something worth trying if you spend more than 1 day in town. The young guys running the restaurant are very kind, service has been quick, food is simple and home-based style but good, tasty and healthy...and it will give you a break from the usual... More

all of our entries were excellent. Hot stews and large portions. A bit pricey but one of the best meals in El Calafate. Nice atmosphere.

Gorgeous colourful and quirky decor, enthusiastic staff and generous portions - the lamb stew (with pastry lid) was more than enough for 2 people, and their homemade bread is a real treat. A nice change from steaks and several vegetarian options. The food was rather under seasoned for us, but would still recommend this restaurant.
