“Excellent Food in a Romantic Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

An intimate, exotic and attractive interior welcomes the dinner guest to this small restaurant which is a short walk from downtown Bariloche. Having read multiple good reviews, our expectations were exceeded. We ordered two different versions of the tenderloin, both of which were superb. We found this to be the tastiest beef we have had during our time in Argentina. The service was excellent.

“Wow, what a meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Dinner began with 2 delicious mushroom entradas accompanied by Pisco Sours. Main courses of trout and gnocchi with a wonderful Mendozan wine. Cozy atmosphere, great service and a terrific wine list - 5 stars all around!

“Wonderful decor, interesting food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We enjoyed a wonderful and interesting meal at Kandahar. Quite beautiful and cozy. Venison and smoked trout pates started the meal with freshly toasted bread. Pastas and beef were good (mushroom in pasta could have been rehydrated and rinsed better). Desert was simple but good.

“Romantic Place, Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We ended up at Kandahar because Alto el Fuego was full. It ended up being our #2 restaurant, behind only Alto el Fuego. We split a ribeye for the main course after a venison empanadas and beef carpaccio. We also had two glasses of Bianchi malbec. All was excellent, especially the torta de chocolate with ice cream and cherry sauce, which was great.

It's a very small house, so reserve if you can. They take only cash, which is common at many restaurants (but not Alto el Fuego), so plan ahead. The house is quite charming, with many creative touches inside.
