When you see the small door from the street you don't think it will be one of the best meals in town - but it will! Simple room, chilean menu, the scallops in pisco (AR$ 105) are divine and really has lots and lots of scallops. It's acctually an entreé but we ordered it as one hour d'ouveurs for two.... More

Small family run restaurant with a Chilean flare in the southern most Argentine city. Wide selection of foods with an emphasis on crab and seafood dishes. Warm and inviting. Limited by very good chilean and argentine wines, which were well priced.

The service is not great. They are slow and not very professional. The fish is good quality, but it is impossible to eat grilled fished that is not under tones of sauces. We ordered three grilled fishes (all different), all of them under a mountain of sauce :-( So, order with no sauce, but not sure it is possible.

We had lunch here after it was recommended to us by two different locals. It's a simple, casual eatery with really good food. Service was slow -- but that seems par for the course in most Latin American cities we have visited. We were in no hurry, so it wasn't a problem for us.

One may get very delicious food here, but the waiting is forever. That may ruin the experience. My general opinion is that you may find as delicious food as this at many other places in Ushuaia.

This restaurant is not immediately easy to spot, as you will have to find a sign and climb upstairs to actually find the restaurant. The atmosphere is interesting, with a number of Chilean memorabilia on the walls. The restaurant is simple but seafood was actually good. We tried an excellent entry with scallops and then a light plate of friend... More

We were the first to arrive at Chika for an evening meal and after being seated promptly, ordered wine and our food. The restaurant filled to capacity fairly quickly thereafter . We received our appetizers probably an hour later and our entrees came an hour and twenty minutes later. The group at the table beside us , seated about the... More

If you are tired of eating Pasta, Lamb and meat and in the mood of a non pretentious place, Chiko is the option. Excellent seafood and fish at reasonable prices. Of course, try the Centolla or King Crab in any of its preparations. You won't regret it.

We had a very good lunch for a reasonable price at Chiko in Ushuaia. There was a daily luncheon special of meatballs which many locals seemed to have ordered. We probably would have gotten our food more quickly if we had ordered the meatballs. Our waiter was very nice and brought us bread before our meal. We ordered crab casserole... More
