Best King crab and squid casserole

Had the king crab natural style for entree and the king crab and squid casserole for main. This was ample for 2 people and was absolutely delicious. Not the cheapest around, but would highly recommend. Good and quick service.

In the Tierra del Fuego region, king crab forms part of the menu in most decent restaurants. Often, it is dressed or split into shreds and then served as a mound with or without a sauce and usually with semi intact portions of legs. The outside of this restaurant in Ushuaia is not very reassuring - a pink overpainting of... More

Loved the food, went back 3 times. Don't be put off by the wait, 4th in line behind us was seated within 4-5 minutes. It is so good everyone just waits patiently for their turn at a table. They don't rush you but must turn over their tables at least 5 times each night

We just arrived from Buenos Aires, were hungry, passed by. They specialise in crab which lured us in. The promise was better then the actual cold and already cracked crab. Very friendly family running the place, full of people coming in for a quick bite.

Great location right in the centre of town. I had the King Crab and Octopus casserole which I thought was wonderful and could almost have served two people. Wine list was also good and very reasonably priced. Friendly and quick service.

Pretty much the only reason we went here was as stated in the subject: it was open, and it had crab. They didn't have WHOLE crabs, in spite of the pictures outside - all deshelled and in chunks (so no idea if it was fresh or frozen or what.) We got the crab fuegina and the trout fuegina and some...

We went here after reading other Tripadvisor reviews but we thought food was just okay. We had the crab and octopus stew which was filling and could easily be shared. If you order a salad it is just lettuce nothing else. The restaurant was busy by 9:00. Come here if you want okay food.

In the three days in Ushuaia we ate at the Pink House four times. The king crab dishes are very delicious and fairly priced. A generous portion allows you to really taste the seafood. Unlike most restaurants in Argentina, the service was fast but still fresh. Having experiences some other eateries in Ushuaia I could not think of a better... More

This was an incredible meal in Ushuaia. The waiter suggested the king crab and octopus casserole. It was sooo tender and absolutely delicious. The service was great and the atmosphere was really cool. I highly recommend!!

If you are looking for unpretentious tasty food, this is your place. We followed their recommendation and got the cheapest white wine in the menu: it was DE-LI-CI-OUS! Don't expect any fancy stuff, but really good food.
