Great

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.

We enjoyed our dinner here. Good wine list and excellent food. Central location. Nice decor. Our friends were enjoying their steak.

Obviously a very popular restaurant and justifiably so. Meals were very tasty and huge portions. Variety was fantastic. Unless you are starving forget the entree. Great value for money. Highly recommend

This restaurant is very nice in many ways, nice decor, friendly staff and reasonable prices. We both chose pasta after so many meat meals in Argentina. Unfortunately the pasta was not good. The sauce was dry and the pasta chewy. There were perhaps better choices on the menu as others seemed happy.

Try the lomo, its amazing. I had dinner in most restaurants in Chalten, and this is by far the best one.

We did not book and were lucky to get a table for two around 8pm. Twenty minutes later, the waiting time was at least 1 hour… Very warm, rustical (alpine ?!) atmosphere, with the fireplace and the wooden tables. The many decorations on the walls are like a guest book that you discover and read during the time the cook... More

Like so many others we chose our restaurants when traveling based on Tripadvisor recommendations combined with guidebook reviews. Tapera got good scores on both, so it had a good place on our list of places to try in Chalten. Tapera is a happy place. It’s well decorated and kind of fun. The chalet style restaurant boosts a happy atmosphere and... More

A small group of us ate here twice and enjoyed it both times. Fairly large (but still only about 50 covers) for El Chaltén but even so booking is recommended as it is rightly popular. English spoken. Friendly service. Reasonable choice on the menu, wine list and choice of beers.

We ate here two out of three nights in El Chalten. The first night we had curry chicken and most of our group was not pleased with it. Mine was dry. One table said that there's was good, so not sure what happened there. We had a type of cheesecake dessert that was good. The carrot soup was interesting. The... More

The restaurant is very popular. We went there at 6pm when they just opened and were able to be seated (this is an extremely early dinner time in Argentina when people are typically still having afternoon tea!). Most people who dine there are tourists, and the waitresses speak excellent English. They also have an English menu. The food comes in... More
