The food was pretty good, the fish tasted great and the service was fine. The only thing was that, after being specifically asked if the crab was alive and fresh, the waiter answered yes. Then he proceeded to bring us a king crab which after opening the shell, which is where all the tasty pieces of meat lie, we found... More

I couldn't leave Ushuaia without eating king crab (centolla). I ordered "centolla a la Provenzal" which was good and tasty mostly for a person who doesn't like seafood. The view is amazing and the service was ok. The only thing I didn't like was the fee for "service" which includes a little basket of bread. Before any order, I asked... More

Steam king crab was very fresh and sweet served with steam rice and bread. Overall ambient was quiet and cozy. Staff was average in service and friendliness.

The restaurant was a recommendation, and we were not disappointed. Arriving without a reservation and in a fairly large group of 15 people at a busy restaurant, the waiter went out of his way to push a few tables together to accommodate us including a view to the port. The service continued to be friendly and efficicent. The food was... More

Had lunch here on a Sunday afternoon in early March. We didn't eat anything that was extraordinary, basically everything was just average, to include the bread, that was served cold. The waiter was rude, he had an attitude from the moment he came to our table. I even had to stand up to find the salt & pepper shakers because... More

Great food - especially the king crab which was superb. I booked during the day and had a table by the window with an incredible view over the port. We watched our ship for Antarctica coming in while we ate! The staff were very friendly and attentive. A friend had recommended this restaurant to me. No the cheapest - but... More

Great view to the port of Ushuaia, delicious food, polite staff, speaking English... Really a place to remember! Eat a crab - will not forget it for a long time... A bit spicy, but just perfect in taste, served in a shell. The beef and the salmon were also pretty good. Highly recommend that restaurant.

The restaurant is well located and meals are good (Iv'e had king crab in mornay sauce and almond ice cream tooped with chocolate and ordered a white wine from Mendoza). The service is good. But the ratio quality / price is not good. Prices are too high. You don't leave this restaurant with a good impression. I don't recommend it.

Eat here on a Sunday lunch time. Should have known better as it was almost empty but it's a large restaurant overlooking the water so I gave it a try. Waiters did everything they could to avoid my eye or signal and they weren't exactly rushed off their feet with three other tables being served. Steak I had was basically... More
