We were lucky to stumble upon Kau Kaleshen during our stay in El Calafate. No reservations, but we were there early for dinner by local standards. It is just off the main road, so easy to find, but not as touristy. The food and the service was superb. While our waitress spoke little English and we speak little Spanish, she... More

I had an excellent meal here. Portions were actually very large. Both the main course and dessert were excellent, as was the service. Most people in my party ate meat dishes and quite liked them, but as a vegetarian I also really liked my meal.

This restaurant is not on the main street but thought we would look for it as Lonely Planet listed this place as a vegaterian restaurant. My partner as pleasantly surprised to find meat on the menu. The best meat in Argentina and presented beautifully. They first serve you with fresh warm bread with herbs which tastes like home made bread.... More

We happened to be staying in the Hosteria which made attending this amazing restaurant. We had the trout and the traditional stew (can't remember the exact name). They were both superb! The service was also excellent, as our server was attentive and friendly. Prices are fair for the quality of food (around $160AR per entree). If you are in El... More

We stumbled upon Kau Kaleshen and upon entering we were uncertain as to whether we entered a cafe or a more substantial restaurant. It is a small, cozy place and we were lucky to find a free table there. The service was delightful and we were pleasantly surprised at how tasty the food was. I was in the mood for... More

To find gourmet food at very reasonable prices at nearly the end of the world is something NOT TO BE MISSED!!! The chicken pie is both comfort food and a mixture of subtle flavors that is something that made even this New York Restaurant-goer take notice. Wine list is plentiful. And... there were tango dancers to passionately light the evening... More

We ate here three nights, and being vegetarian, it was so nice and delicious! The cheese fondue is very good. We ate from the Netherlands and like good cheese and this one is really very tasty. Very nice vegetables with it, like baked little potatoes, aubergine, courgette, and also toasted little bread squares and little tomatoes. We also ate the... More

We had fondue for dinner and it was very good. There are also other options in the menu for those who do not like it. Be sure to bring cash, since the restaurant does not accept credit cards.
