“Simple but hearty food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

A favourite among the locals, this simple familiar eatery serves hearty dishes of italian influence at fair prices.
Although simple (this is not an inovative place), the food is tasty and consistently executed. The "milanesas" (breaded steak) are clearly the highlights. But beware: the portions are huge!
The place is always packed with families. So, get early or be ready to wait.

“Great value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Good local spot with homemade food. While it feels a little cafeteria-esq to food is yummy and the value is great.

“great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

La Fonda del Tìo! Typical Argentinean meals, charming place. It was one of our cheapest dinners in Argentina, and by far, the best one... outstanding.

“Cheap and tasty!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

We found out about this place from our kayaking guides and it's great - we would have gone twice if we could. Cheap for Bariloche with a cheerful local atmosphere, and they serve big portions of delicious milanesa - see if you can eat an entire entrada size! Just make sure you get there before 8:30 or you'll be waiting for ages.
