On holiday in Argentina for a month and fancied a break from parillas which we love. Decided pasta would fit the bill and this place seemed popular with locals. We had the starter of smoked deer, boar, trout and cheese which was good. Unfortunately while still finishing this, the mains arrived. I could possibly have forgiven their premature arrival had...

We were told that Esquel is a gastronomially challenged town - which there is some truth but is a little unfair. We came here on my birthday - it was a great place, good service, lots of old artefacts in the restaurant and they took great care of us. Great pasta - magician - very talented.-one of the cheapest meals... More

Had a great pasta dinner with my crew. The lasagna was huge and one of the better ones I have ever had. Go early because it gets very busy after 8:30pm!

Ever one I know who has been to Esquel eats here. Great entertainment for the children with a magician who comes round to the tables.

We went here on a recommendation and we were not disappointed, the food and service were both very good, the atmosphere was a bit dull to begin with but as more diners arrived it got better.

Don Chiquino is a lovely restaurant in Esquel. It has a unique atmosphere with all the vintage objects on the walls, good service, and the pasta is extremely good. A great selection of sauces, and if someone in the party does not like pasta (or can't eat it) there are some good options for them too.

A very oldish atmosphere with antic objects, the food is good depending what you eat. A magician was performed magic tricks with cards from table to table. The only negative aspect was that a very tasteful "osso buco", swimming in a delicious sauce, was not accompanied with anything like rice, pasta or potatoes! What a pity.
