I travelled Argentina solo and ended up at Kalma one evening based on the reviews here. I wasn't disappointed. Shortly after being seated Jorge, the owner and chef, came over to introduce himself and the restaurant. He told me about the restaurant philosophy (local ingredients and adds a worldly twist on his Grandmother’s recipes), the specials and gave me recommendations.... More

We're not big fishy eaters, but the fish was divine. With my little Spanish we managed to order something off menu that had come in fresh that day. Fish on its own, blah, salad on on it's own, salty, but put together, delicious! Caramelized onion soup entree and crispy chocolate cake with olive oil were all very tasty. Good wine... More

This was the best meal we had in Argentina. My gf and I were very surprised to find a restaurant of this caliber at the end of the world. All of the courses were great and the chef came out and introduced himself and explained each course. Highly recommended if you're in Ushuaia. It's a bit more expensive than the... More

The food and service here were both good but not out of this world. I think that the prices were high and that for what we were charged the food & the ambience should have been simply stunning. I make this judgement after comparing other restaurants throughout our stay in Argentina and at times we ate like kings for a... More

We wanted to splurge one evening and were not disappointed. I made a reservation in advance as suggested in previous posts. The chef/owner takes great pride in his creations and we enjoyed the whole meal. The black hake was perfectly cooked!

What a wonderful find at the end of the world. Forget the Restaurant at the End of the Universe this restaurant would be worth travelling a long way to experience. From the welcome and enthusiastic introduction by the owner to the last mouthful of desert this was a marvellous experience. We dropped in without a reservation but a hint from... More

Kalma is a wonderful place for diner (only on reservation but you can try in case ...). The owner (chef) knows what hospitality means but also cooking. We enjoyed the meals, the service, the wine, the ambiance and also the very decent price ! Great gourmet experience !

The food and service at Kalma Resto compares favorably to the best you would find in any major city. While we had good food at other places in Ushuaia, Kalma Resto was by far the best and most sophisticated, without being fussy. The chef uses the best local ingredients in innovative ways. I especially enjoyed a lovely octopus appetizer. Service... More

Wonderful service and excellent food will await you at Kalma Resto. The restaurant is small so reservations are a must. The chef takes a lot of pride in the food he serves. We had the ravioli, rolled lamb, steak and the sashimi appetizer. I have to say we were all very happy with our choices. The presentation was like what... More

We thought we would sample this restaurant as a treat on the back of some very postive reviews. We were not disappointed. The owner who is also the chef takes a very close personal interest both in his interaction with diners and with preparation of the dishes, all of them which have his unique signature. All the food is sourced... More
