My father and I had the pleasure of eating in this wonderful restaurant in January 2014 whilst travelling through the Falklands, Argentina and Chile. The restaurant itself is ran by an extremely generous gentleman who loves football! As soon as we arrived we felt like we were in a genuine traditional Argentinian restaurant. The atmosphere was extremely cosy and homely... More

So so delicious! Was a wonderful meal from start to end! We ordered everything from fish to steak, and all was great. Wine pairing (per recommendation from owner), was perfect. Atmosphere super cozy. Recommend!!

Despite shoulder-season the restaurant was packed with people. We had no reservation and had to wait 45 minutes (instead of the promised 20 minutes). Doesn't matter but unfortunately it was not worth waiting... as the meal was not satisfying. We ate a vegetable soup (nothing special), the trout which didn't taste good. The trout filet and the vegetables were absolutely... More

This place is so good we went back twice in just a few days. The steak and the lamb ravioli are both amazing. The chocolate volcano dessert is scrumptious. The food is served imaginatively and stylishly - top marks for presentation, and the flavours to match. The cosy central fire really adds to the atmosphere too.

The food here looked better than it tasted for me. Presentation was good as was the gnocchi but the steak was very tough. Service was alright but a bit cold/brusque. I wouldn't go back.

I know you may think that I'm bonkers to post this as my headline, but we were in Argentina for 10 days, ate 20 meals and may have eaten desserts in most, but the tiramisu at La Tapera was to die for. The restaurant has a great vibe - wooden cabin, cozy ambiance, great service. We went for lunch (as... More

After a long day hiking we peaked our evening with fantastic lomo and two wonderful bottles of malbec in this cozy hut-like restaurant. The food presentation is tasteful and unexpected. Nice staff. Highly recommendable!

The best restaurant in El Chalten! Gourmet cooking at a bargain price. The steaks and salmon were fantastic. In Argentina, beef tenderloin is called Lomo and that's what to order if you like steak. And the salmon is fresh! I ate there for four days in a row. Order a local beer made right in El Chalten.

We had dinner here our last three nights in El Chalten. Best steak we had on our entire trip, and excellent trout as well. Reservations recommended -- they fill up before many of the other restaurants in town are even open.
