B&A is pretty informal as it wants to give the impression of a library. We went there at mid afternoon and had a couple of bottles of wine and had "tapas". Food was very good as well as service in a very relax environment. We really liked it!

I really loved this cute bar, it was truly charming. The inside is decorated beautifully, its like a library. I found it very quirky, service great, staff warm and friendly. Food and drinks were lovely and worth what they were charging. I went back here a few times, once for lunch with my friend, once on my own for a... More

Kool place if you are all by yourself in town and need a good place to browse internet... I had a "picada" that was so complete (3 kinds of salami, 2 kinds of hams, 3 kinds of cheese)

A cosy and charming bar and book shop. Extensive coffee and spirit menu. Warm and atmospheric and books to peruse whilst passing time in El Calafate.

We went to the cafe twice and we had a great time spending some time there. The first visit we had empanadas and coffee drinks. The second time we stopped by to drink a hot chocolate and churros. Very tasteful. The music, the ambient and the staff are worthy of your time.

Met a bunch of people, we'd met whole sightseeing. Good location, lovely hot chocolate with rum :) and definitely the place to be the night Argentina beat the Netherlands. We watched the impromptu celebrations and street parade...!

This place has a buzz going by virtue of being situated along the main avenue and right outside a shopping hub. They have outdoor seating as well as an enclosed restaurant upstairs. The bar menu is extensive but not expensive, the food menu too has a lot to offer. I ordered their cold cut platter and even though they advertize... More

Nice place in El Calafate to have a quick meal or a sandwich. The handmade beers are not bad and the food good. It worths more for the atmosphere and decoration - a bookstore quite warm and welcoming place.

It`s a place to relax and have something to drink. The wine list was as good as the musical selection. It is situated in the middle of the town and it appeals to locals and tourists alike.
