We arrived early from our cruise and had a spare evening which we decided to spend eating out in Ushuaia. We had no bookings so we hiked up the hill to Kaupe but they were fully booked. We ended up here and it was early evening and we had no problem getting a table. There were only two waiting staff... More

Our tour guide recommended this small, crowded spot overlooking the harbor and her choice please everyone in our group of 5. Service is a bit slow, because there are only two servers but the seafood is fresh and well prepared. Not for gourmet meals but a good, reliable place for a meal en route to a cruise. As always in...

I went there based on my tour book's recommendation, and met a couple who went there based on their hotel's front desk. The three of us ordered three different things. My seafood with rice is the best seafood dish that I ever had! There were a range of things in it… very well done. My dinner friends ordered the dishes... More

We ate here twice while staying in Ushuaia. The second time the day after as we enjoyed the meal so much the first time. Bookings are definitely required - we got in around 6.30/7pm and it was quiet then but later and the restaurant gets very busy. The food selection was great, with the seafood being fresh and tasty.

I went here yesterday with my family and I was expecting more. The restaurant is cozy but seems to me like a place that was once really good and now takes it for granted. Our waitress kind of pulled our leg since she didn't warn us that the portions we were ordering were good for two people. We ended up... More

Listed as one of the best (and oldest) restaurants in Ushuaia, I just couldn't miss it! Warm people and good food (best served with argentinian wine). I would come back again!

A family enviroment, it feels you are eating at your dear aunt/grandmother's house. When it is very full it can take a while to ask for dessert. The food is very good. We ate two kinds of king crabs and black hakes. Recommended!

We were recommended Tia Elvira by a local and were not disappointed. Lively and cozy place right by the bay. The cod and salmon were excellent and the menu brimmed with classic as well as innovative fish, seafood and other options (including some options for my vegetarian dining partner). Excellent salad too. Our waitress was very patient and good-natured about... More
