Plenty of Tourists But Good Food

This place seems to be one of the top parilla (BBQ) places in Ushuaia. It looks like many tourists go here so the prices may be a bit higher, but the food is tasty, and the staff have serving out of towners down to a science

Amazing place. The huge grill in the front and the man cutting juicy pieces of Lamb at your requests is outstanding! There is a buffet salad and meat all you can eat. Very good value. The athmosphere is a bit touristic but is totally worth it.

When you come to Patagonia, you HAVE to try to the lamb. Which is exactly what we did. We took the 'eat as much as you like buffet' option and we were not sorry. Lots of salads (some better than others) but we LOVED the lamb. Other friends had beef but I have to say, the lamb was better. Good... More

This was recommended by our Hotel, but we were disappointed. We had the all you can eat buffet as encouraged by the waiter. The starter buffer and side dishes didn't look fresh or appetising. The chips were just left to keep warm on a bain marie so I didn't bother. There were lots of options with the meat and it... More

This is a very nice restaurant with all you can eat possibility. They serve a lot of meat which is the speciality of the Argentinians. One interesting thing was the way that the cook responsible for the grill served the meat, by always hiting it with his big sword.

If you like eating meat, then you will like eating at this restaurant. It's all you can eat and you shouldn't leave hungry. The side dishes were okay, however the real reason you go to this restaurant is to eat meat. I enjoyed the beef the most, however those that ate the lamb liked that as well.

Although this Restaurant looks simple the beef is fantastic. Ask for "rodízio" ( known as tenedor libre - all you can eat) to taste the local sausages, Patagonian lamb, vácio and bife de chorizo . Do not forget a good red wine : Catena Malbec is always a good choice.

All you can eat parilla (barbecue), the lamb and fries were pretty good but I didn't enjoy the rest. The morcilla was too fatty and the salad didn't look fresh. Service was friendly and reasonably fast, but I wouldn't recommend it. The reason it wasn't a total waste was that we wanted to try the patagonian lamb and it was... More
