“A diamond in the rough”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

We came across this place while driving around Circuito Chico. Almost drove by it, glad we turned around! Amazing views from the deck, super friendly staff, delicious hot empanadas and tasty local craft beer. The owner (can't recall his name) greeted us with "hello" in multiple languages. That made us feel comfortable that he spoke English and we struck up a great conversation about beer, as we are home brewers back in the U.S.

Highly recommended and we will stop by again next time we are in Bariloche!

“Get the hot chocolate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

We stumbled on this place looking for a view and a drink, and we loved both. The hot chocolate, both with and without rum, is not to be missed. The views were great and the staff was super friendly - making recommendations for things to do and places to eat. Definitely recommend.

“A Very Special Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

The best view in Bariloche with great beer and friendly staff. After cycling the Circuito Chico one could not hope to find a better spot to relax. Great for lunch or a late afternoon beer before dinner. Loved this place.

“Best view & Gluten free foods!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Can't top the view or the waffles! Gluten free foods available also! We have enjoyed the restaurant twice. Even on rainy, windy or chilly days it is enjoyable. The outdoor seating is covered and glassed in....woodstove makes for cozy comfort!

“Nice cafe. Lovely View. Not a restaurant!!! And not in the top 10..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

On the "Circuito Chico" outside Bariloche - the 20km or so scenic drive that takes in the Llao Llao peninsular. This is a lovely stopover for a snack/drink - it has beautiful views of the lakes, nice cafe type food (nachos, empanadas, papas frita etc); friendly service from staff who encourage you to "vote for" them on tripadvisor and reasonable prices. You can get similar views (or better) elsewhere for free but this is probably the best cafe en route. But,,,, it should not be confused with most of the other establishments in the top ten restaurant list in Bariloche - it is not a restaurant.
This rating, in my view, is not really justified under the restaurant section. Tripadvisor take note!
