Great food and atmosphere

We ate here on two nights. The first seemed to be getting off to a rocky start when we arrived to find a queue and what appeared to be a gruff owner. In the end there was only a 10 minute wait and once inside, the owner introduced himself and we had a great time. Steak was great but may... read more

We ate here twice and really liked it. One of the staff - Julietta - was so kind. It has an extensive menu and good wine choices.

After enjoying dinners in Buenos Aires for four nights, we looked back and thought our steaks in La Tapera were as good as any we had in BA.

What really makes it one of the best (if not the best) places in El Chalten is a small firepit in the center of the restaurant. When it blows cold wind outside, you do not want to leave the restaurant! The food is also amazing, steaks are as good as in the best US steakhouses, wine selection is very robust... More

We ate here for a birthday meal but despite booking we had to wait. They were very packed which is good. The wine was good as was the bread but the food was nothing special. The pasta was tasteless

We liked it so much we went twice. Great steak and great Lomo (tenderloin). The flan is not to be missed - justify it by a big hike the next day!

This restaurant was highly recommended by our guide, plus it was highly rated on TripAdvisor, so we searched it out... and were so glad we did! The salad appetizer was HUGE and so welcomed as we had a hard time finding fresh vegetables during our time in Argentina. The empanadas were also very good. We both had pasta dishes (the... More

The four of us had a delightful dinner from our initial warm welcome through the complimentary brandy at the end of the evening. Two of us started with the pumpkin soup - delicious and a third had the salad with walnuts, raspberry vinegarette and bacon, also delicious before our entrees of beef with herb sauce, eggplant purée and potato wedges,...

This is probably one of the best restaurants in El Chalten and a must for the serious carnivore! Main courses cost about $20 for the serious eater. The salmon here was OK but rather small, portion-wise - certainly not as good as the nearby Pangea. Wines and beers were also good and at a very affordable price (decent Malbec for... More

Went here after a day of hiking. The food was delicious and home made bread great as well. I had pasta which was great. The desserts were also very nice, especially the tiramasu.
