“Wonderful lakeside restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Living in Bariloche, we´re always on the lookout for new restaurants to try out, and Holly is special, already a favourite among the locals. To begin with, there are few places that offer a good view of the lake, which makes Holly even more tempting as it´s literally on the lakefront. Secondly, it´s gained a reputation for good, interesting food at reasonable prices.
Why did we take so long to go there? Maybe because when we drove past it always looked full… So, to celebrate our wedding anniversary, we made a point of booking a table on the terrace, nicely heated and sheltered from the wind. We saw the full moon rising huge over the mountains and reflected on the still waters of the lake, an unforgettable experience!
The food was excellent: their famous barbecued ribs for my husband and a wok for me, but it was hard to choose among several tempting dishes.
It´s simply one of the best places to enjoy the views and cuisine of Bariloche!

“A Great Break from Asado”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Having just completed my tour of Patagonia, This place was a refreshing break from the Argentine Bife / Pizza restaurants. I had the worlds best caesar salad by far and the local fresh salmon was 'to die for!'. The restaurant has fantastic views and the chef's cuisine excelled our expectations.

“Cracking little restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

I've visited Bariloche a lot over the years and this new place is every bit as good, if not better, than some of the more established restaurants in Bariloche, and also very good value. I had the risotto and my partner had trout and they were both very well presented and absolutely delicious. We sat in the area that gives directly onto the lake - great views. The draft ale (i forget the name) was also excellent.

“Spare ribs were a standout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Dinner for two consisted of the spare ribs in a barbecue sauce which were a standout with two long racks a jacket potato with a nice sour cream with light garlic and herbs and a small salad. Best ribs i've had in a long time. The better half had the risotto with mushrooms and was plentiful and a nice meal. Served with bread and accompanied by pleasant service with some English spoken and a nice setting overlooking the bay and all in all a nice evening and thoroughly recommended. The final bill was very resonable and about average for Bariloche.
