Delicious

The staff is very kind and the food was delicious, the best I had in Calafate. It was a bit expensive for the portion size though.

La Tablita is the most traditional restaurant in this city. I went with some friends to have dinner. The best option here is the Lamb. It's the best lamb I have eaten! Excellent service and place! I went every day I stayed in el Calafate!

Excellent steak and lamb here. This restaurant is upmarket and feels slightly expensive for Argentina but we thought it was well worth it and enjoyed the wine recommended by the waiter. Need to book in advance.

This is a nice restaurant very near of downtown city. I recommend reserve your table with anticipation but if is not possible, await less 15 minutes. The local food ana wine is excellent. The prices are reasonable. Good night!

We went for dinner, we started with a great red wine and ordered a special parrillada for 3, which comes with Lamb, rib eye and new york strip steak, also french fries and lamb intestines (which they call "chinchulines"). The portion was big enough for us 2 good eaters, for 3 could be a little short if you eat good,... More

Most comfortable surroundings. Nicest looking restaurant in El Calafate. So-so steaks. Meat a little tough. Attentive service.

We were immediately recommended this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. The steaks and lamb were all delicious. I ordered a dish of mixed grilled cuts and everything was delicious. Try to book in advance to avoid waiting long for a table especially during peak season. The staff is friendly and very welcoming.

This is the best restaurant where we had dinner during our stay in Calafate. It is located at walking distance (just before the entrance bridge) from most hotels close to "downtown" (blocks are not very long). We had one of their main combination of 3 different red meat dish which was great. Salad was fresh and desserts were delicious. Wine... More

It is a nice place where you can eat steak, pork and lamb the pampas way. The meat is very good, soft and is prepared as barbercue. There are lots of good wine and the price is fair.

I came here after our guide recommended the restaurant and we were not disappointed. Our waitress was super friendly and helpful , the atmosphere warm and welcoming and the food super delicious. The Patagonian Lamb was outstanding (see picture). Don't miss out on the Calafate ice cream. This was an experience worth every dollar spent.
