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

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.

I am a bit torn because I am not quite sure how to rate this restaurant. The staff was very kind and the atmosphere friendly and welcoming. So from that point of view it was a nice visit. The food however was seriously bad in my opinion. We ordered gnocchi with bolognese sauce and in all honesty I don't think... More

We ate here and we all had pasta which was good, nothing that stood out but no complaints either. The only issue we had was getting someone to help us. We were there early so there was only our table and one other, so the place was not crowded at all, but every time we needed something, the server was... More

Had Christmas Eve dinner here. The food was good and imaginative, bit on the heavy side, but enjoyed it very much. Service was on the slow side (compared to the US), but very friendly. all in all an enjoyable and fun dinner.

One of the few places open in Chalten on Christmas Day, 2013. Which also was a cold, rainy, blustery, wintery feeling day. This was the closest restaurant to our hotel that was open, and we went for lunch with another couple we had met along the way. Started with some soup ( to get warm), a bottle of wine and... More
