Great Food and Wine

We had a thoroughly enjoyable meal post-FitzRoy trek at Estepa. The food was excellent and the service was great. Their wine list is extensive though with a slightly higher starting price than other restaurants in town.

A real find. Glorious and sophisticated food - i our experience rare for Argentina. Bruschetta: to die for but different than we are accustomed to as it is prosciutto based. Ravioli trout superb. Lamb and steak superb. Lamb sweet and better than previous Argentina lamb IMHO. Wine and mojitos superb. Interesting design. Jean the waiter a charming and heplful character.

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.

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.
