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

This restaurant had a good atmosphere with a large Argentinean style grill on which the do great steaks. The owner speaks good English and makes sure that all tables receive attention. Reasonably priced, especially the wines.

A good restaurant in a small town is one that make you feel like you are at home. Como Vaca is that kind of restaurant. You will not see waiters with a nice suit, or the chef with a big hat. You will see people like you and me. The owner is a very pleasant guy, and great cooker. He... More
