Thanks to trip advisor we gave this place a shot. I was pleasantly surprised - the scallops in torrontes and cheese sauce were incredibly delicious. It was some of the best seafood I've ever eaten in Argentina. The langostinos al ajillo were also really tasty. I'd stick to the seafood though - the hamburguesa completa came and was a thin...

We stumbled on this restaurant during lunch, and it was such a pleasant surprise. We had the natural king crab for starters and it was just succulent, sweet and fresh! We tried the merluza negra and it was so fresh and good, it melts in your mouth. We also tried the king crab and octopus casserole, and it was tasty... More

This restaurant was one of several ones advised by the B&B owner. Then we could hear the local guide recommending this place to some other person for excellent quality at the reasonable price and it was very true. The restaurant is very busy sometimes though it is located in the Rivadavia side street 15m from the main shopping and restaurants... More

El restaurante se encuentra a una cuadra de la bahía de Ushuaia, resulta que solo abre para la hora del almuerzo o la hora de la cena, el resto del tiempo está cerrado. Llegamos para pedir centolla, pero no tenían (informaron de esto ni bien entrar al restaurante) y pedimos merluza negra y calamares, platos que fueron normales en su... More

We had a hard time choosing a place to eat on Sunday as everything was closed or didn't open until very late. We picked this place because it had generally positive reviews but were very disappointed. I only had spaghetti with tomato sauce and it was less than satisfactory. Everything my parents tried to other, they had run out of.... More

Warm and cute. Yellow walls, blue and yellow tablecloths, delicate white curtains. We know it's less 'commercial' when only one (or none of the staff) speak English just barely enough to help us order. Found this next to Yamana Native Indian Museum, a joy in itself. Husband loved the Argentinian beef. I loved the local crab. Pick your seat for... More

We visited this restaurant after being recommended by our hiking guide and as he said, the food was excellent. Starting off with some empanadas (carne), my wife had the King Crab and Rice and I had the Squid and King Crab Casserole. Both dishes were excellent with extremely fresh seafood. With a nice bottle of wine, the total meal still... More

This is a real find just off the main shopping street. The food is excellent, the staff very helpful and served the best wine we drank in Argentina

We had a fantastic meal at Chicho's. I tasted everyone's plate and everything was great. The Merluza Negra (house specialty) was FANTASTIC. I had the octopus and crab casserole, it was amazing. The service was impeccable. I would love to go again.
