Wonderful Food, Service & Views

Off the main district of Ushuaia but worth the trip. I heard that this was a top notch restaurant and it is. Beautiful views of the bay. The place is small & intimate, only about 10 tables. Service was superb and the food was excellent. They also have a nice wine list.

This small, but beautiful restaurant sits on a hill overlooking the bay. We had the most remarkable scallops and spider crab for lunch. The staff were so attentive and the lunch a special treat after being on the cruise ship for several days. It's a bit of a hike to reach, but worth the climb!

+++ A fish ceviche, crêpes of centolla (local king crab) and Centolla Kaupé (in a mustard and cream sauce) were all excellent. The chocolate marquis dessert on a "bed" of dulce de leche sauce was delicious as well, with the dulce de leche sauce not being overly sweet. We shared all dishes and they were all divided in the kitchen... More

We had dinner here on our last night in Ushuaia. Was it pricey? Yes, but it's a fine dining restaurant. We had a bottle of red wine, the crab and spinach stew starter (so good!!), and two of their variations of seabass. The lemon sorbet with warm champagne sauce is something you don't want to miss! The staff is really... More

This restaurant came at the recommendation of our tour guide, and it was amazing. The seafood was fresh, the preparation elegant, and the service was also outstanding. If you are in the area, you definitely need to check Kaupe out!

I can't write about the food as we left just after sitting down.We went to the restaurant on our way from the trip. We weren't much hungry but as it was Sunday the flowing day and it was closed we decided to have something small. We read the recommendation on tripadvisor and wanted to try it. Two of us ordered...

The restaurant is at the top of the town giving it excellent views across the port and the bay. Kaupe is a fine dining establishment with some unusual recipes on the menu. I wanted the scallops Lyonnaise without the onions. The chef thought they'd be bland but I stuck to my choice. He then refused to cook them and the... More

This restaurant was across from our hotel in Ushuaia. White fish ceviche starter which was a special was to die for. It's a must visit restaurant for fish lovers. The food is really top quality. The interior is very nice, with great views but a bit cosy. Staff are nice and speak good English.

We ate our best meal in all of Argentina at Kaupe. Unsurprisingly the owners of this restaurant have been running it for 17 years successfully and their concept of less dishes but each of superb quality made for an outstanding and memorable dinner in Ushuaia. We celebrated our third anniversary there and would return in a heartbeat. They serve the... More
