What this restaurant lacks in ambiance it more than makes up for in quality of food. We had the best steaks in Argentina here...twice.

This restaurant serves your typical Patagonian lamb bbq'ed over wooden fire. The meat was a bit dry for my liking but nonetheless tasty whilst their sides were good. My companions tried the vegetarian soup and surprisingly relished it. Not expensively priced. But not that special that I would return here, if back in El Calafate, I'll try some other place.

Most delicious lamb served here! My wife who chose seafood/fish dishes was happy with all her choices too.

The place looked incredible from the outside, and the fact it was busy seemed like a good sign. Once we got in and were seated, everything on the menu seemed good and reasonably priced. Unfortunately, despite hailing our waitress and a few others as well, it took us a good 25 minutes to have our orders taken. And this wasn't... More

A traditional grill where to have the best lamb in town, in my opinion. If you have beef, pls be sure to ask for a medium rare rare (medio cocido a crudo) as I found out in this last trip to Argentina that most parrillas serve stakes a bit too cooked for European taste. Don't forget to try a good... More

After 16 days in Patagonia I finally enquired locals about where to go for a nice parrilla. Thay all said about Mi Viejo. Unfortynately I do not know the name of the waiter who was helping us but I keep the memory, and that is what counts after all. Gentle and always with an eye on us. Thank you very... More

Lambs are delicious in El Calafate regardless of cooking style. But, mi viejo is one of the real patonian. Lamb is delicious. Vine was moderate. Too crowded, service pretty local( meaning, a bit slow)

We went here because it was one of the only places opened for New-Year. We took a delicious asado, which was the best one that we have eated in a restaurant. The staff was nice and the prices were totally correct. Compare to other restaurants that we have seen in Argentina, the service was really quick and we were surprised... More

Simple food, poorly cooked. There must be better places to eat in El Calafate but since we only stayed for two nights and eat in our hotel (the lovely La Cantera) on the second night we didn't try any!
