This restaurant is a bit of a trek up to one of the highest points above the town. Food is fabulous - Crab is a speciality, and the Fish was also divine. Excellent service, lovely people. Chef and his wife are the owners and Maitre D. This is a must-do whilst in Ushuaia.

Went to Kaupe for lunch based on the tripadvisor reviews and had a wonderful lunch of crab and more crab! The chilled natural crab starter was plentiful with some nice accompanying dipping sauces, but not as flavourful and sweet as the chilled crab I ate at another restaurant in Puerto Varas, Chile; however the hot crab dishes at Kaupe were...

We had dinner here prior to departing on an Antarctica expedition, based upon reviews and recommendations from others. It was the perfect setting and an excellent experience. We had reserved (highly recommended) via email several weeks in advance, and Santiago had promptly replied and confirmed. Our table for two was ideal, by the window and with a beautiful view. The...

We came here with great excitement given the previous reviews but sadly I was disappointed. The ceviche was too oily. The pudding (dulce de leche) was lovely though

We went to have dinner at this restaurant the last night we spent at Ushuaia. There is always a feeling of satisfaction when you have a great meal the last evening of a vacation & this was no exception. Our appetizers were: mushroom soup & natural king crab (centolla); the entrees were the sea bass (merluza) with creamed potatoes &... More

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
