Our hostel proprietor recommended Como Vaca when we told him we were looking for a good steak. We ordered the simple barbecue for two and loved our meal so much that we went back twice more during our week in Chalten. On another night, my husband enjoyed a sirloin with pepper sauce, and I had a delicious, hearty lamb cazuelas,... More

We were with a group of very hungry mountaineers who most nights set out seeking for huge slabs of red meat. Therefore we do know what we are talking about when we say that we ate the best steak meals at Como La Vaca. Recommended

When we entered we didnt know what to expect, the place is small and had only two employes. But it was amazing! The parilla for two is enormous, and we couldnt even finish it. The steaks were superb, the bests we had, and the wine was good. At the end we saw that it didnt even cost much. Highly recomended!!!

We went twice during our week's stay in El chalten, and had the fillet/ lomo both times because it was so good! Excellent quality meat and perfectly cooked. The apple pie and ice cream finished the meal nicely. It's a simple and straightforward place rather than fancy. Waiters speak good English.

We were looking forward to a good feed but left felling ripped off. Had to wait over an hour for our meal and we were there before it got busy. During this time the waiter asked if we wanted more bread. We said yes but it never came. My "500g" piece of lamb was a rip off as it was... More

This was definitely one of the best steaks I've had in Argentina (and I live in Buenos Aires) and absolutely outstanding lamb. Also the service was spectacular- the owner is wonderful- friendly, engaging and attentive.

Great cozy restaurant ran by its (very sympathetic) owner. Top quality meat, prepared for you the way you preffer, and they have 500g/1.1lb pieces of juicy meat. Went there for 2 nights (out of 5). Provavelmente o melhor lugar para se comer em El Chaltén, uma das melhores carnes que eu já comi na minha vida e serviço sensacional. Un... More

When we arrived in el Chalten, in the evening, we looked for a restaurant after checking in at our hotel. It was 8pm when we started looking for a restaurant. We tried a couple, they were all full, with one hour wait to be attended. We discovered Como Vaca by following a sign. The restaurant is off the main road,... More
