I would absolutely recommend this place... makes a great change from all the pizzerias in town! We both had local stews... mine was a great locro served with a spicy sauce that flavours it up a notch if you like more strongly favoured foods... my husband had another stew but with chicken, sweet potatoes and maybe something odd like peaches...

I went traditional with lomo. My husband went non traditional with chicken risotto. Can't remember what my son got but all these of us were happy with our choices. Portions are big. Good selection of local hearty dishes.

We had the Chicken stew and the Falafal sandwich for a late lunch. Both were very tasty and nicely prepared. The restaurant also has free WiFi. One of the better places in El Chalten.

You may find the biggest challenge is finding those few restaurants in town that actually accept tarjetas. (And/or perhaps dealing with the one ATM in town being broken...) Fortunately, this establishment does take credit cards - and also has amazingly tasty food. Enjoyed a late November dinner with a couple of trek mates and we all left quite pleased. My... More

We had visited the restaurant at a lunchtime and enjoyed the empanados as a snack and found the service friendly and good. We booked for an evening meal which proved necessary as it turned out to be busy and ordered the Argentinian Stew (locro) which had been recommended.Basically corn and beans which was also a little bland and although an...

We ended up eating here twice because it was our favorite of three restaurants. We should have tried more dishes but we liked the ones we got the first visit that we got them again the second time. We got locro, which is a hearty stew. It comes with a spicy sauce that I heaped into the stew that gave... More

our original plan was to walk up San Martin to a particular place, but shortly after leaving our hostel we smelled this kitchen. we were hooked. we briefly thought about the beef we'd smelled from outside, but it is 450g plus salad or potatoes--far too much for us! it's probably a meal that two people could split along with an...

the restaurant was nicely done up and had very good food (traditional and international food). The staff was very friendly and spoke English as well. We really enjoyed the atmosphere, but remember to bring a jacket.

Trekked for 8hrs on a chilly windy day in the mountains above El Chalten. Could ask for no more than a good bottle of wine, delicious Lorca stew from this sweet little restaurant with Basque roots, and a helpful server. Oh by the way the apple pie was delicious, too! The price was a very reasonable 500 Argentine pesos for... More

We went for a dinner here, had their empanadas and Patagonian stew with rice. The stew was a bit bland for my liking but nonetheless tasty and well done and well presented. The service was great, fast and efficient and the people very courteous. Would recommend that you give it a try.
