superb lamb, quite expensive

first of all - the waiting area, with a view on the open fire oven - that was a nice surprise. Elegant, nice and pleasant big hall. Excellent lamb, huge portion (Argentina size). Efficient and cozy service. must make reservation hours before.

A very nice ambience welcomes you to one of the best parrillada places that El Calafate had to offer to us! Very attentive and qualified service, great quality of beef and tasty lamb. We will for sure come back there in our next trip to this city

After a visit to the glacier we arrived in town and were very hungry. The restaurant was near to our hotel. I ordered the lamb.They charge a lot for the service. The food was nice, great meat. The staff was friendly.

This may be one of the nicest places to dine in El Calafate. The restaurant is beautifully decorated in rustic style. The waitress was very attentive and helpful. My husband enjoyed a tasty meal of grilled chicken breast and pureed pumpkin. I foolishly ordered the large tenderloin (380 grams), because my husband said he would have some, and pureed potato...

An up-market restaurant in El Calafate... we had been told they made the best steaks. We were a little dissapointed - our steaks were a bit tough. The prices were a lot higher than elsewhere. It was very busy and quite noisy (even during the off-peak season - I think large tour buses stop here for dinner).

The restaurant was completely full but it is quite large and you don't feel crowded. We had the grilled meat platter that included beef, lamb, and chicken. It was served with grilled veggies and home made fries on the side.This was one of the few restaurants in Argentina where my beef actually came medium-rare as I ordered, instead of well... More

A very attractive, large, rustic place with a lamb fire pit in the front, on the edge of Calafate town center. My wife and I both had excellent small steaks. We made reservations for an early time and had no trouble. By the time we left, the place was packed.

Had a good dinner here with my boyfriend. The service was good and the wait staff were efficient, friendly and happy to speak English for us. The Argentinan wine was delicious. The meat was rather tough but still tasty. We also ordered the grilled veggies, again good, but nothing special. Overall, overpriced for the quality of food. I would not... More
