Fine dining spot in Ushuaia

Very small and cozy yet modern place. Excellent cuisine, surely one of the best in Ushuaia. Fresh and nicely prepared seafood combined with bold wine recommendation. Do not miss out on this special spot.

We had an amazing experience in Kalma Resto. The food was excellent, we allowed the chef to drive us through this gastro experience, and it was all a success. All the dishes we tried were good, fancy enough for a gastro but with no extra ingredients that could drawn the flavours of the excellent product. The service was personal and... More

Michelin quality food at the end of the world. Price may be slightly higher than the other restaurants in the area, but I have to say, for a fine-dining experience, it's quite inexpensive.

We had a fabulous meal here. Totally worth the money. So good that almost 2 years later I am still thinking I must write the trip advisor recommendation.

Went here for my birthday travelling dinner and they where fabulous. Met by the chef Jorge and he was a delight. His food was superb , a twist on local ingredients and so well prepared! This is the place to go in Ushuaia! Can't recommend enough!

The meal we enjoyed at Kalma Resto in Ushuaia was spectacular. The entire meal was executed beautifully and Jorge came and spoke to us throughout the duration of the meal to ensure everything was "perfect". I would highly recommend Kalma to anyone in Ushuaia.

Kalma was strongly recommended by our hotel - "The only place to eat in Ushuaia..." The greeting was warm and the service attentive. The chef is proud of what he does, and took pains to explain his preparations. Nonetheless, we found the presentations a bit pretentious (??sea foam on the crab??) and the price very high - over $60 per... More

Advertised as a Top Restaurant Choice in Ushuaia (ref LP), we felt left in the cold on Saturday 21 March 2015. The overall food quality was very average if not below, the servings meagre and the prices out of balance. Yes the staff were very friendly and courteous but cooking a dinner is more than blowing wind ... We could... More

The food was superb and the service delightful. I enjoyed it so much on my first visit that I went back again 2 days later. My only regret is that I do not live close enough to visit regularly. Of the various dishes I ate my favourite 2 were the King crab starter and the Black Hake - delicious. Definitely... More
