Left Ushuaia with a smile!

We booked a table at Kaupe online having arrived in Ushuaia and checked out reviews. The online booking works brilliantly and we had a confirmed reservation for dinner within 30 minutes, beautifully welcoming and written in English. Yes it's a bit of a walk up hill to get there from downtown but the view is lovely, if you ignore the... More

It is a hard climb to get there but you will be compensated by wonderful views to the Beagle Channel. Make sure you reservate a table next to the window. For the views I guess a lunch would be better. It is not a cheap restaurant, compared with other options in Ushuaia but it is a reliable one. The drinks,... More

Kaupe has quite good food, but nothing spectacular. Focused on fish (merluza and king crab/centolla) which is done well, but not imaginatively. The best thing going for the restaurant is its view, unless you sit on the far end, in which case some unsightly radio antenna towers get in the way. Very good service. Expensive, as are all restaurants in... More

My wife and I spent New Year's Eve in Ushuaia. We opted to ring in the new year with a wonderful celebratory 6 course seafood chef's tasting meal at Kaupe. Each of our dishes was prepared very simply and showcased the exceptional freshness of the ingredients. The highlight of our meal was a seabass kouliviac (coulibiac) - sea bass with... More

We went with my wife and our 3.5 years old daughter to this place based on recommendations. The place is up on a hill but it is easy to find. You will see the building and sign once you hit the road. We had cheviche appetizers to share and both were great! Scallop one had milder taste but still very... More

We had the King Crab in a paprika cream sauce and it was one of the best dishes I have had. We also had crab and spinach chowder that was not quite as good, but excellent. The service was first class. The only downside is that the view out the window is marred by a large communications tower. Ugh. While... More

This is a fine dining restaurant that has a magnificent view of the harbor so don't expect cheap food. The chef uses a very simple touch to his dishes to emphasize the food so there aren't complex sauces etc, the mussels special was delicious just a simple wine and garlic broth, as was the grilled octopus. My wife had the... More

We had the most memorable meal at Kaupe, the service was the best we have had in a long time, the extensive wine list and knowledge of wines gave us the perfect match to a perfect meal. Absolutely worth every penny! Thanks!

11 friends ate here after a cruise to Antarctica. This restaurant was recommended by our travel agent and the expedition leader on the Antarctic cruise. Not only did we have one of the best Pisco Sours in the universe, but the view from our table looked straight down the Beagle channel almost right out into the Drake Passage. we ate... More
