I would never expect to find a place of this quality at the very tip of South America but we did. Jorge and his very very small staff are producing some of the best food in South America. You can tell of his love for his work the moment you walk into the door. The places is cozy and... read more

Based on TripAdvisor reviews we made reservations with the chef/owner, Jorge Monopoli, before leaving home. We were departing the following day on an Antarctica cruise. First, I would suggest that you make reservations, not only to guarantee a table, but because the ensuing back and forth e-mails with Jorge Monopoli are so much fun. He inquired about everything from our... More

Food is very good, its gourmet restaurant so quantity is little less. Ambience I would say it was specious but I have been to another restaurant with better view but... More

We spent one night in Ushuaia waiting to board our ship to Antarctica. We were really glad we got to dine at Kalma that night. The restaurant is small--be sure to get your reservation a few days in advance. While we were eating there was a steady stream of would be diners who were told the restaurant was full that... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our night at Kalma Resto. We liked the small restaurant atmosphere and the personal service. The waitress was very friendly and the chef made appearances as well. The food was delicious!

As good a meal as you will find anywhere - I mean that. The chef/owner was trained in a three star michelin restaurant in Spain and it shows. His food is smart, fresh and extremely tasty. His passion and dedication to the craft is unsurpassed. He also knows wine and will be happy to help you pick a bottle. By... More

We were delighted to find Kalma Resto, just around the corner from where we were staying. It has just 12 tables and a great atmosphere. The chef and owner comes out and talks to the guests about the menu and the server, who is both maitre'd and waitress, exudes charm and adds energy to the restaurant. I had the octopus... More

We ate in Kalma on Thurs nite. It's a cozy little place not too far from the port. We were very early for out reservation because of a change in plans and they accomodated us with no difficulty. Decor is modern and a informal, with good taste. Only the way they set up the tables speaks of a high end... More
