Expensive, and not the best quality food. Sauce (not good) for pasta charged separately. Was told wifi worked, stopped functioning after about five minutes. Not a great option.

We had lunch here twice while staying in Esquel. The sandwiches we had the first time were OK, although my wife found the bread on her toasted ham sandwich far too thin. Second time round she tried the canelloni which was excellent and I had the ravioli, good although the pasta could have been thinner. They serve Esquel Amber Beer... More

One of the nicer restaurants we found in town. Decent prices, awesome burger and WIFI. Offers a variety of foods unlike the other spots we found. Open for late dinner.

Good service, varied food menu but alcoholic drinks are expensive and overall a little pricey. But a good safe option if you have a group of people with varying tastes

Esquel isn't known for its gastronomic highlights. There are very few decent places to eat. But Maria Castaña is located right in the middle of the town, is open from 8 in the morning to late at night (closed during the day on Sundays except in high season) and has excellent and cheerful staff. The food is basic, but well... More

Maria Castaña is the traditional cafe (and meeting place) in Esquel. God coffee, drinks, and light food. Most important, it is open when many other eating paces are closed, so it really solves your problem when you want to dine early (that's before 8 PM by Argentina's standards).
