Good fare in a small town

We ate here as a small tour group. Food was very good and the service was very good. Recommended by this US tourist

You know it's all going to go horribly wrong and you are about to get ripped off when you order a jug of tap water, the waitress comes back, having spoken to the owner, to tell you that the tap water is not safe to drink!! This is the only establishment in the whole town that will not serve you... More

One of the reasons we chose this place is that is said in a few places on the door that the took credit cards. With limited pesos, this was important. After dinner, we put down our card for the bill and they came over and explained that they would drive us , in the owners car, to a hotel, to... More

For our Xmas eve the restaurant went to some trouble to ensure we could celebrate with a three course meal. They even added extra food at no extra cost. This was appreciated. The main meal was steak or chicken. I had chicken which was tasty. Unfortunately during the night I had to get up for drinks of water because of... More

A don't usually have bad things to say about any place. I also try to see the positives in most situations BUT I feel I have to write about this restaurant as we had a thoroughly bad experience here. Throughout the dinner I kept getting nudges that the whole thing was designed to extract more and more money from me.... More

We ate dinner at El Chalten for three nights and all our meals were good, but this place had the highest prices and the least ambience. The most popular places need advance reservations but it is worth the trouble.

We ate twice this restaurant. The first time we had a curry chicken that lacked a lot and left us not ever wanting to eat chicken again. When our tour operator took us again, we almost staged a revolt. The second night we had a veggie lasagna that was excellent. It was a great change of pace from all the... More

We ate here one of three nights in El Calten. It was much better food than we had at the other place, but apparently was more expensive (but worth it). We had absolutely great vegetable soup which was served super hot. The bread was good. I would have been happy to just have soup and bread, but we also got... More

El Chalten is a quaint beautiful town of only a 1000 people, but obviously you don't need a lot of people, just the right people... That know how to cook! Ritual De Fuego is an unpretentious restaurant that creates a delicious dining experience. I'd highly recommend the fresh trout prepared with some kind of tomatoey spicy sauce that I wanted... More

Very nice small restaurant. Good selection of drinks and choice on the menu with a up market feel. Had 2 mains desserts 2 beers cost around $480 pesos. Service was excellent right up to the end. Pre. booking would be advisable so not to be disappointed.
