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.

We really enjoyed our meal here. The lamb stew was fantastic, warm, and filling. The trout was well prepared. The tiramisu was a little unique since it came in a martini glass. Overall very cozy and enjoyable. Servers were friendly and it was fairly easy to get their attention

A great little restaurant with a lovely intimate ski lodge feel to it. The food is really nice, our table ordered everything from pork shoulder to lamb stew and a savoury crepe. Desserts were also extremely well done and tasty. One recommendation would be not to serve the tiramisu in a martini glass as it creates an imbalance between the... More

Ate here on our last night of a trip. Great wine list and the owner knows his stuff. Food was all great. My spinach soup was excellent and one of my favorite things I had on the trip. Small, cozy and cute. Would make reservations as a result
