“interesting beer - too many flies to even think about eating there”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

There's not much to do in El Calafate (after all the point is to see the glaciers) - so an interesting pub that brews its own beer is something of a plus. Indeed the beer was good.
However, the place was infested with flies - I mean hundreds of them. We gave a second pint and any thought of food a miss seeing all these flies crawling over everything.

“Good beer, TERRIBLE food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011

If you are going here for a drink, you will enjoy the beer as it is great! The food here however is horrendous and I cannot recommend eating here under any circumstance.

“Strong Brew”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2011

It's a noisy pub but the beer is very good and comes in three types. The food is rough country fare and very filling. Service is good too. Just be careful how much you drink the pavement outside is a real trip hazard!
