We were in Ushuaia in a very cold November and to find this restaurant was a real treat. The service was excellent and the food fabulous. This really isn't a place for people who see food as just fuel, this is for those who actually like food and want to eat the good stuff. Oh it was such a find.... More

This gem of a restaurant is located on a small street just a few steps from the main shopping street of Ushuaia. My husband and I have eaten at some of the world's finest restaurants and Kalmo holds its own at this level. The service is impeccable. The chef greeted us personally and helped to in making our selection of... More

I don't know why this place is recommended so highly in Lonely Planet - on a shoestring. Its overpriced and very pretentious. Not suitable for backpackers who want good food at a decent price. The food was decent quality but very small portions. We couldnt afford a starter. The cheapest wine was over £10 the most we've paid anywhere in... More

The most amazing culinary experience at the end of the world.. who would have thought it?! Amazing cuisine, fine dining experience was fantastic as was the staff. Personalised service - meet and greet by the chef, exquisite dishes. The chef even asked if I had any allergies. Now thats what I call Personal Dining.. can´t put into words how tasty... More

Visit the restaurant! It's absolutely wort it!! The food was so artistic and it really felt that the chef was passionate about this! It's a small and super charming place. Every detail- from the way we were accommodated to the moment we left was so good. Don't hesitate to try it out!

I'd seen the reviews on the website, and Kalma Resto also popped up in both my travel guides, so thought I'd treat myself. This was easily one of the best dining experiences I had during my stay in South America. As others have said, the chef and owner came over to introduce himself and tell me about the restaurant. He... More

It's a sophisticated restaurant in the end of the world. It was recommended by a friend and I was not disappointed. The chef and owner welcomed us and explained his vision and the spirit of his place. The food was good and paired with a wonderful wine. It is not a place to go if you are in a hurry.

My husband and I were at the tail end of a 2.5 month long honeymoon and Ushuaia was one of our last stops after busing the length of South America. We saw this restaurant had great reviews in our travel books as well as this site and they lived up to every expectation. We had an appetizer, main, and dessert... More

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
