We had some of the best lamb of our lives here. The staff was very nice and encouraged us to share an entree and not order too much food and like the title suggests the slow roasted lamb was amazing. The hotel also has a pretty good bar in another building if you want a drink afterwards. All and all... More

We enjoyed a really good dinner at this restaurant. Comfortable surroundings with excellent steaks and lamb dishes. Service was functional. Try the grilled vegetables.

La Poste is a elegant restaurant. It serves great lamb but the other dishes are also good. When the restaurant is full, the attention of the staff decreasing…. We gave them back one of our salads because there were several brown leaves in it….. we never saw it back! We wouldn’t rush back….

We passed this restaurant several times walking from our B&B into center of town. Figured it was probably bland and stuffy for our tastes. But after reading some reviews, and feeling lazy, we decided to give it a try. The dining area is quite large and seems rather formal, but no one was dressed in other than the usual casual... More

20 bucks for a 450 gr Gran Bife sounds like a great deal... a la carte, of course, but this place is pretty average, smells good, nice cordero, beef cuts are not more than average, no matter how you slice them. Decent wine list and mas o menos service, where they want you to take the chilled wine poured after... More

La Posta was a delicious restaurant serving up Argentinian fare. My husband ordered a small steak (big enough for lunch the next day); best so far in Argentina. Vegetarian options were limited, but they worked with me to make a delicious gnocchi dish. Service, all in Spanish, was excellent. The restaurant was formal, yet relaxed and many were dressed casually.... More

We have been told about Patagonian lamb but have been unsuccessful in finding a place that seems to do it authentically until last night. We were staying in Posada Ls Alamos hotel and read good reviews of La Posta and as it was part of the hotel we decided to have a look and there were 2 lambs just being... More

I was surprised and pleased by the quality of food in El Calafate. On our first day in town we decided to dine at the closest restaurant that was still open at 9 PM on Christmas Day and La Posta fit the bill. What a great choice! The rabbit stew with gnocchi I ate was the best dish I had... More

Best restaurant in El Calafate.. Reservations recommended. Good food & excellent service. Location near main street in front of Casino. Despite elegant environment, it is quite unformal atmosphere. Great Marbec vine by the glass. Clients are mostly tourists from Hotel Los Alomos.
