Juan and his wife run a very good small family restaurant. He is out front taking orders. Very personable. Complementary veggie and marinated bean starters. Lots of seafood options. We had trucha a la cosquera and trucha a la casa. Both were very fresh tasting. The cosquera comes with papas espanolas which are thinly sliced with onions, capers and garlic.... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel owner, upon hearing that we are not big meat eaters and like seafood. The restaurant is run by a family. We went there at 8-8:30pm and were able to be seated without a reservation. People who eat there were mostly locals. The owner does not speak English, but his daughter does.... More

Needed a break from red meat and found it here. The pescadores especial was fantastic. Pasta was good too. Fun atmosphere and very nice owners.

This place looks simple but the fish are excellent. The owners knows virtually no English but he compensates for it by being extremely nice. All in all, good value for money!

Wonderful experience. For an coastal country it has very few seafood places. This one is run by a Uruguayan and his Argentine wife. He is witty and a jokester. I had a wonderful merlusa (hake) dish. The rice and prawns dish was outstanding. The menu is extensive.

We ate here on the recommendation of our guide. The decor was basic and the restaurant was located away from the main drag. The service was friendly and there was a huge choice of fish dishes. Orders are shouted up the dumb waiter to the kitchen and delivered down to the main dining area. We had the merluzza and a... More

you kind of expect good service from a place called Amigos and we did. i think it's a safe choice in terms of everything that you get from the drinks to the food to the.. check :) I liked what i got, but some other people's choices were even better looking. Definitely worth a shot if you are there.

We ate there only once, but that meal was superb, with fish and seafood dishes prepared with great care. The owner had a very proprietary sense of pride, and spoke personably about the history of the place. It was the best dinner experience during our four-day stay in El Calafate..

We spent 5 days in El Calafate and ate here twice - by far the best, and possibly would have eaten more. Great food, great local atmosphere.
