We dropped in for dinner tonight after walking Laguna de Los Tres and decided we need a good steak. We decided to try Como Vaca. The food was incredible. When reading different tripadvisor restaurant reviews many people say their steak was the best they had ever had. Don't make that decision until you come to this restaurant. It is a... More

This place was great - one of the few places in El Chalten that had good and quick service. I was by myself so liked getting served fast. They took USD and gave pesos in change. They said they didn't take credit card, even though one of the reviews said they did. The credit card communication line might have been... More

This restaurant is small but cozy and if it's crowded when you arrive, wait! The atmosphere is fun and rustic with sheep skin to cushion the wooden benches and the parrilla inside the restaurant. You can see the chef chopping then cooking the meat on the grill! We had the filet lomo and the sirloin with pepper. Both were fabulous... More

The wind was blowing so fiercely the evening we arrived in El Chalten, that we chose this restaurant because we could see it across the street from our B&B, Kau Si Aike. Except for one night when we wanted pasta, we ate dinner there every night. The staff were welcoming, congenial and helpful (in Spanish, English, and French). The lentil... More

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
