I talked my companion into splurging on a dinner here, and I am very glad we did! The service was top-notch, and the atmosphere was relaxed but splendid. The views alone were fabulous - you could watch the ships come and go from the plate glass windows that look out over town and port from the hill top. The food... More

This is a very welcoming restaurant with great service . The menu is short- always a good sign. We started with ceviche in a lovely salsa and perfectly cooked scallops in a light sauce. Mains were octopus cooked to perfection-so tender and a soup of king crab (all the shelling done and no fragments left). the bill with water and... More

We had our best meal in Ushuaia here. We tried the Carpaccio and Ceviche for appetizers and they were wonderful! For the main course we had Sea Bass and the daily special, Octopus. Both were excellent. The view, attentive service, and great food made for a nice evening! The only downside is we opted to have wine by the glass,... More

I went here for dinner, with high hopes based on tripadvisor reviews. The crab appetizer was good, but the ribeye entree was awful. How Argentines could screw up a steak flabbergasts me. The waitress was adamant that they couldn't prepare the steak medium rare- HOW CAN YOU NOT COULD A STEAK MEDIUM RARE?? It's unfortunate that the view of the... More

Kaupe has a lot going for it. A quiet street location with an outstanding view of the bay. The decor is very traditional Argentine. The staff is most accomplished and accommodating. The food delivered to the table is creative and excellent in every way. So what is missing? The vegetables that accompanied our wonderful sea bass was almost nonexistent. Just... More

When you arrive in Ushuaia, Argentina you really feel like you are at the "Fin del Mundo" (End of the earth), and from the point of human civilization you are! So one would expect the pickings to be slim for fine dining and wine selections, but think again. The restaurant "Kaupe" located on the street called "Roca" and overlooking the... More

After a bit of a walk up Roca, we found our destination, Kaupe. A full view of the harbour and town below. The food is presented very thoughtfully. It is very appealing to the eyes, and very tasty to the palate. We had first rate service, very attentive without hovering. Ernesto is skillful in the kitchen with the balance of... More

My wife and I read the TA reviews and made reservations for lunch before our ship was to depart for Antarctica. Our plan was a light meal and then not to eat again until we arrived on the other side of the Drake Passage. Our plan worked find. This was a perfect meal. Yes, the king crab crepe was perfect,...

We were eight Canadians traveling throughout Argentina. Kaupe is a family run operation that takes great pride to serve their guests a fine meal. The creative menu dishes for the meats and crab were delicious. The chef is the father and takes the time to talk to you about his work. The son is the maitre d' and tries his... More

My husband and I had dinner here on New Years Day. It was a set menu and every dish was delicious. I really cannot say enough about the food, it was all seafood and so fresh! Wine was paired with the meal and was perfect. Service could not have been better, very attentive but not overly. The view from our... More
