“A must in Bariloche!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

It's you with 40 friends and this place have only 35 places? No worries, the amazing waiters will sort it out!
Almost every review I've read say the truth. Family-owned, friendly atmosphere, great waiters, outstanding quality-value relationship, huge -huuuuge- dishes, simple but hearty food, recommended by every taxi driver in the city... Don't miss it.

“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.
