Discovered this place and ate here each day of our stay. The classic filet and great Argentinian steak are two pieces of meat which simply should not be missed. We also had the chicken and calamari both very nice as well. A little pricey for Argentina, but in American dollars the best value for the best steak in possibly the... More

My group had an outstanding meal at Casimiro. We wanted to go to another restaurant, but that place was full and the owner of that establishment recommended Casimiro. The food was outstanding, the service very good. The steaks and lamb were cooked to perfection.

S50°20.287' W72°15.734' they proclaim that their kitchen combines classic and innovative dishes, always faithful to quality. The restaurant was fully booked by tourists. A warning sign. Did they meet their standard during our visit in December 2014? Clearly not. The restaurant looks smartly designed with a view on their parrilla behind a window and their wine cellar. Much attention was... More

Nicely presented......in the Main Street. A classy place to have a drink...........at least it felt like that without expectation and price tag. The coldest beer in town and great service. That was all we were there for initially but enjoyed it so much we stayed on for pre dinner snacks. Sadly we had booked elsewhere for dinner. Give it a... More

First impression was very good, host was able to sit us on December 24th without a reservation. However, when food arrived taste and presentation were average, not what I would expect for such high price. To make things worse, server completely forgot about our table: never received our sides for the beef and only saw server when we chased him... More

We had steak and gnocchi-both were delicious! Had some trouble ordering wine as we wanted savignon blanc and they were out of 3 of the 4 types until we finally got a bottle of the fourth (which was the last bottle that they scrambled to find). It was packed in there so it may have just been a busy night.... More

We dined here on our second night in El Calafate. After being seated our very attentive waiter served us a couple of small bites on the house. We shared an appetizer, a salad and a vacio (special/unique Argentine cut of beef) Honestly if the beef had been better, I would say that the restaurant deserved a higher rating. While tasty,...

Suppose to be a Nice restaurant with good food (BUT), it is located in the main street. The attitude of the owner was very bad to solve problems. Workers were good but because the restaurant was busy (1st day in the new year) the food always come very late and not hot.

Our drivers from the airport and the front desk of our hotel both recommended Casimiro Bigua. It did not disappoint. One of the best grilled lambs ever. Generous portions. Great spot in a town with some limited options.
