What a great place

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

We had a very nice meal at Kalma. The presentation and flavor of the food was outstanding. It was a nice find and very different from the other restaurants we found in Ushuaia.

To not visit kalma when you are in Ushuaia. We are very fortunate that we get to eat in some top places around the world and it is no exaggeration to say that kalma more than meets these standards. The best meal I have had in Argentina (and this is my second trip to the country). The food is well... More

Excellent, innovative, interesting, delicious food in an intimate setting! The owner is the waiter, chef and bartender so service is first rate. This was definitely the best meal we had in 30 days in all of Chile and southern Argentina... Go TRY IT!

Based on previous Tripadvisor reviews, we booked a table at Kalma Resto for Valentines Day months in advance. Surprisingly, the place was not crowded when we arrived at opening (7 pm). For Valentines Day, they offered a price fix offering. We rolled the dice and went with it. Everything was superb and presented beuatifully! The owner (Jorge) helped serve multiple... More
