Very nice restaurant in Maipu street facing the port. Nicely decorated and they serve great food , the Tia Elvira soup is very good and very tasty also the Crab in all ways. The price is a little high than the other restaurants.

We went to Tia Elvira on the recommendation of a friend. The attitude of the woman who was seating people should have been our first indication and we probably should have left. She seemed to be friendly to Spanish speaking patrons, but not to anyone else. In fact, when three people opted to leave in the face of her rudeness,... More

The food here was quite good and very reasonable, in a cozy spot overlooking Ushuaia Bay. However, we were the first lunch customers and told the server we had to be out in one hour. Receiving our lunch (nothing complicated) took 45 minutes......

Had a nice meal here during our only night in Ushuaia. It was't our first choice but we weren't disapointed. The good: the place has some charm, the black hake, the casseroles and crab were all good and the wine selection wasn't bad. The service was a little slow and the meal a little expensive but then again you're at... More

We ordered crab (outside the shell) as an appetizer & it was good, but it could have been better. We had the local grilled black fish as an entree & it was also good but not great. We also drank a bottle of white wine. Interestingly enough, this turned out to be our most expensive meal during our 4 weeks... More

I am rating the service only, as we didn't get to eat here since they would not serve us. We came for dinner and were rather abruptly (rudely) told to wait outside when we arrived. There wasn't a ton of room in the restaurant, so this made some sense to us apart from the manner in which the message was... More

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...
