Lamb

As you walk into La Estancia you will see the lamb being cooked in the front window, over a wood fire. We didn't book and got the last table. The lamb carcasses are hacked into pieces with a meat cleaver, put on a platter and served to the table. The meat is delicious, moist and full of flavour... read more

If you are really hungry and into meat just go for the "tenedor libre". Its an cheap all you can eat buffet with the hole collection of meat. The staff is quite nice.

Pretty much right in the centre of town. This Argentinian bbq offers both a la carte and "all you can eat" for a price. The meat early in the evening, until about 9pm was perfect, but as the evening wore on, they obviously got a bit behind with the cooking, and the meat available became more rate and less appealing...

After many good words from several locals and tourists I arrive at La Estancia. It was quiet yet took forever to ask where I could sit, let alone receive a "good evening" from anybody. The "all you can eat menu" is good, yet the meat is very dry. Salads are OK, sauces too. The service was more busy talking with... More

Ate here as it was one of the few restaurants that didn't have seafood as it's main catch-cry. Neither my mum nor I eat seafood, so when you're on the coast things can get a bit tricky sometimes and Ushuaia is no exception. I love lamb, and will opt for it almost every time I see it on a menu,... More

You can´t miss tasting the Patagonian lamb in this restaurant! Follow the waiter suggestion and try as many delicatessen as you can from all the variety of food offered here. Also try the red beer. Cheers! Be sure you won´t regret it!!!

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.

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

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
