great meat and side dishes, best quality. Is a bit more expensive than other restaurants around, but totally worth it. Wonderful filet mignon and sweet potatoe chips. Also argentina steak. Big choice of wines. We went again in ushuaia to casimiro bigua and loved it, too. ........................................................

Food's great, but like anywhere else in Argentina don't expect too much when ordering non-meat. Good wine list and the sommelier is friendly.

In Argentina in general, all chicken I had ever tasted were dry and not tender (usually only chicken breast available in Argentina). This restaurant is no exception. Disappointed. Price is on high side. The presentation of food, atmosphere are good though. I have no interest to try again when I later reached Ushuaia and saw the same restaurant there.

completely overpriced for the qualitiy of food. Almost double the price for a "bife de chorzio" as in Palermo Buenos Aires and poor Quality.

I never use this acronym but OMG! Best steak ever, and the lamb! Have I said OMG? You will be ok if you don't speak Spanish, and the waiter very much humoured me in my attempt to do so. Service was very friendly and attentive. Certainly prices are expensive by argentine standards but I disagree with another review which suggested... More

Nice typical restaurant of the Patagonia. You can taste the Patagonian flavors as lamb, beef and chorizo. Nice ambience, situated in main avenue and very accessible from all downtown places. Good service and excellent list of wines including those from the Fin del Mundo. Not fantastic but good experience.

It's worth noting that most things are expensive in El Calafate. It's a small town that relies on tourism dollars, and it's far enough away from everything else in the area that I have to think getting stuff there (food, supplies, etc.) is a logistical nightmare that drives up the price. That said, we felt like the value we got... More

That's a choice if you want good food and don't mind paying 70 dollars for a dinner. We asked for parrila (for 2 people) and "papa frita rustica". The (cow) meat was perfect! The others, not so much my taste. I asked for a glass of wine and my husband just drunk water. The wine was good. No desert or... More

This is one of the best options in El Calafate. The restaurant is very good. Great food, very well served, nice staff, great wine list (argentinian wines basically). The prices are reasonable and the place is comfortable. A must go.
