We ate dinner here twice during our stay in El Calafate. The food was fantastic home cooked food!! Very casual with a through back feel to the 70's!

Quite laid back atmosphere - the staff all seem quite young & studenty and pictures make the place look like a backpacker's haunt but it does double up as a pretty good restaurant. Interesting menu with a few variations from the norm, and the food seemed quite hot and filling - quite handy when you're in the cold of Patagonia!... More

I had the pleasure of spending some time in El Calafate in October 2012 and had the chance to eat dinner at this wonderful restaurant. The energy in here is magical. The food, comforting and delicious. The dishes are definitely enough for 2 to share :). And everything is made with LOVE :). Enjoy...

Cozy, warm atmosphere. Delicous food - we had the lamb and beef. Overall great dining experience, and well worth a visit. One of the top among the Calafate restaurants!

The stew crust was incredibly salty which affected he while meal. I mentioned it to the waiter (when eventually I managed to "get hold" of him) and he said this was how... More

Awesome decor, amazing argentine traditional food (gnocchi, beef stew baked in pumpkin, lamb pie), big portion, good service, reasonably priced. Must go.

It was a bit of a walk from our hotel, but it was worth it. We showed up just before it opened and stood in a line of about 7 people. I loved the bohemian decor and feel of the place. There were so many tempting dishes on the menu. The lentils were wonderful and hearty and paired nicely with... More

This place was recommended to is by our hotel. It's not were you come for huge steaks but for hearty home cooked food. The place wasn't that busy when we arrived around 9pm but quickly filled up and was soon packed. Service was good and the serves were huge!
