Great Patagonia Lamb

Ordered Patagonia Lamb for take out, with a side of roasted potatoes. Shared it with my wife for dinner, and we still had enough for a light lunch the next day. Yummy.

We spent a few nights in El Calafate in March, 2015. Our tour guide suggested Casimiro Bigua as a steakhouse to check out. We did. We did, two nights in a row. It was that good. The people there were as friendly as they could be, and the meat we ordered was just about sinful, in that the portions were... More

Conveniently located on Main Street (Av Del Libertador) as many restaurants we went for dinner. Food was very bad, meat was hard and salad was not fresh. Staff tried their best but place was simply under staffed so food took ages. Prices also were a little high than average. I would avoid this place. jr

The Asado (wood flame grilled) Patagonian Lamb is something to be tasted once at least. It is a very typical specialty and the best place to sample it is in Patagonia. And the Casimiro Bigua looked like the best place on that Main Street in ElCalafate and was the top recommendation by the Design Suites Hotel front desk. It is... More

We ate lamb in 3 different restaurants in El Calafate and this was the lowest quality one between them (but still super tasty, don't get me wrong) and for sure the more expensive of those 3. Service is not the best one and we had to call them several times in order to ask for a desert and the bill,... More

Our meal was overall very good to excellent (beef) along with great service. One of the few restaurants that we spent over $100 for the two of us. Included was a $28 bottle of wine.

I'd like to think that I'm a reasonable person and even when I'm the customer, I usually cater to the server, guide (whoever I'm around) trying to make sure they're comfortable. After traveling for 5-6 hours from Chile, what I wanted most was a good meal! We got our recommendation for this restaurant from our hotel Patagonia Queen and the... More

We had just arrived in El Calafate and after settling into out hotel, took a walk down the main street of the town to see where we might have lunch. We noticed a couple of venues that looked OK, but then. we came to Casimiro Bigua where we were attracted to the sight of meat (lamb) cooking over a wood,... More

The food we had was very good, especially the lamb, although the service was slow. Prices were reasonable.
