Came in just before closing, but still prepared to serve out a two course meal. Very tasty food and a friendly staff. Should be higher up in the Chalten ranking!

A small but nice place. While some of the other places were enjoying the success of a higher ranking on Tripadvisor (meaning full and crowded), Estepa was peaceful and relaxing with just enough other patrons to provide a bit of ambience. The staff was friendly and helpful and the food was quite good. We had lamb with potatoes that was... More

We had a fantastic meal here. As a long-term traveller splashing out on a decent restaurant is a big decision and I'm very happy to say Estepa well exceeded my expectations. I had the beef tenderloin, which was professionally presented and accompanied by a sweet potato puree, crispy potato cake and a delicious malbec jus. It was all divine and... More

We were thrilled with this choice. The food was excellent and well prepared, the service was great and the Pisco Sours were some of the best that we had in Argentina. We were surprised by the wonderful food in this small town.

We enjoyed our Meal here in el chalten. The food was something a bit different. Subtle changes on classic dishes. The wine choice was varied and good and the staff were attentive.

I have visited this restaurant many times over the years when hiking in El Chaltén. It is amazing - the food is delicious, the service & atmosphere are excellent. They also have excellent local wine "Fin del Mundo". It is definitely my favourite restaurant in Patagonia. The views are fantastic of course

This place is not what you expect to find in a place like chalten. They know how to prepare the food. They serve the food in an artistic way.

We stumbled upon this place returning from our hike one day when we popped into the bottle shop for a beer and wine. We ended up coming back nearly every night for well priced wine and beer (that you're able to eat in the garden) and nearly the same menu available takeaway. Recommend the vegetable calzone (doble) - it's a... More
