“Just average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Surprised at no. 1 status on TA.
Menu sounds better than it really is.
Didn't do ceviche any justice.
Steak was quite good but overall just average food.

“Best restaurant in town (with plenty of veggie options)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

This was easily the best place to go and eat for a vegetarian (and others). Really tasty food presented brilliantly and great service too. The only problem was that they were so busy in the evening I could get dinner there as well. Might be worth booking ahead or going early.

“Fantastic food and great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

We had guanaco stew, king crab and a vegetarian dish with pumpkin. It all tasted wonderful and the price was very reasonable!

“Creative food option en Punta Arenas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

La Marmita offers very good quality food in a nice environment just steps from the Bories Avenue. Differs from other restaurant in town for the originality of its dishes. Stromgly recommended for couples and a very good deal for your money. If you have to choose a restaurant in town choose this or Damiana Elena.
