We came in at 7pm and were surprised to have no wait to be seated (as reservations are usually recommended). Service was good, although I think the fact that we picked out a "cheaper wine" for less than 300 pesos made our server suggest a lamb dinner for 2 rather than the one entree, salad and a lamb entree with...

We were a party of four and decided to have dinner at this restaurant mainly because it was late and all the others were crowded. I cannot say the food was bad, but it wasn't great, either. The onion soup I had was thin, nothing special, and could fit a thimble, so small the portion was. A little later I... More

we had dinner here, since the restaurant was crowded they asked us to share the table with another couple. we loved the place and the food. based on lonely planet indications we were expecting a bit cheaper meal, but it was good.

This was definitely the best of the four restaurants we tried in El Chalten. I had some lamb and my wife had trout ravioli, which were both excellent. The place had a nice feel to it and the staff are friendly. We would have returned if we were here another night.

This charming little restaurant serves well prepared dishes with a special effort on preparation. We took the trout ravioli which was just amazing and the local stew wich was also very good. The open wine was a malbec reserva which was also tasteful. For people looking for a special meal, I would recommend the chef's propositions composed mostly of meat... More

Great spot for some local food. I had the lamb pot pie and it was excellent. The meat was a little bit fatty, but still very tasty. Others had the fish dish and it was excellent as well. A bit on the expensive side.
