Not so good

I went to this restaurant with my bf because we read good ratings and reviews from TA website. We order 2 Chorizo Steaks, famous for being tender and juicy. However, both steaks were rough and dry. Probably I was not lucky that day... Anyways, service was always kind and smiley. Prices are average.

Stopped in here & had some delicious pizza after a long day of hiking. They made a great half n half pizza as I couldn't decide which type I wanted on my one! Lovely gooey cheese & generous toppings, along with a great pisco sour!

S49°19.940' W72°53.123' Well-known and busy pizzeria in El Chaltén serves 20 kinds of pizza and the occasional 400-gram beef chorizo. In high season, reservation is needed. Although many Argentinians have Italian roots, leave pizza to the Italians and go for Argentinian beef or lamb. For a pizzeria, the beef chorizo was remarkably good in December 2014. Strangely, it is served... More

I went to Patagonicus twice - just for the pizza. The Roquefort cheese pizza was really very very nice and goes down really well with their boutique beer. Staff are pleasant and there are very interesting vintage photos on the wall of the area before it was developed. This place is well worth a try.

Since you get in you'll fell transported, from the ever cooling wind to the warmer an couzy inside of this restaurant. They have a "bife de chorizo" that good that you would like to repeat it (not that the portion isn't big, because with 400 gr is one of the biggest in town). Great music and awesome view to Fitz...

We liked the pizzas at Patagonicus, nice crust generous with toppings and the mozarella is tasty! Service was prompt too.

Have to give Patagonicus a big plus. Great Pizza, best in Argentina! I accept this is off a low base - only about 3 fir the whole trip - but they were good in our opinion (group of 4). Generally I found pizzas in Argentina too cheesey for my Australian taste, these were perfect. Oh, and the prices were good,... More

They don't have toppings such as pepperoni or sausage. But instead you'll have ham or thin slices of steak as meat options. The all veggie pizza was good too. Pizzas come in 4 or 8 slices. If you're moderately hungry, go for 4. If you're really hungry then 8. Pizza tend to be under cooked for me here in Argentina.... More

We are not Pizza fans but hastened into this restaurant sheltering from the torrential rain and proceeded to enjoy prompt friendly service and also excellent pizzas.No shortage of variety with ample fillings and the portions which we left were packaged by the waitress and eaten the following day on a trek.

Fantastic pizza and fresh salads in a simple, rustic setting. Great service. Neat historic mountaineering photographs adorn the space. Great value.
