Loved the fish but the waiter never came back once to see if I needed anything during the whole meal. The restaurant is beautiful & the meal was perfect.

Excellent service, fast and efficient, considering the poor standards in the city, especially in Trelew. Elaborate and a wide variety of entres. Pretty decent wine selection. Professional waiters, just about the only restayrant worth decentservice. The rest is quite rude, unsophisticated and blunt. They lack training in customer service. The only restaurant in town where you can eat up until... More

Went to this restaurant. right on the waterfront, twice for dinner in two days ... and I must say ... GREAT value for money. It must be one of the most popular placed down-town. When I arrived the first night at 7.30 PM the place was almost empty ... an hour later it started to get 'packed'! Today, I arrived... More

My salmon was overdone and chewy, with lots of little bones. The veg. accompaniment was just so so. Everything in the bread basket was stale. The butter tasted like it had mayonnaise mixed in it. Only 2 choices of wine for small bottles. The one I chose was really bad. The service was great and the decor was very nice.

We had fish and potatoes (Argentines don't do veg as a rule). Can get roasted veg as an add-on if you ask and get lucky. Trying to be creatively upmarket but not totally working. Prices average for area. Desert was nice (chocolate fondant)

Most of the food was average, and the fish kebabs were inedible. The restaurant itself is lovely and well appointed, but not "authentic" in terms of local flavor. Yes, it's highly rated on TA, but with so many other choices, I'd say skip it.

Went for lunch and was very underwhelmed with both the food and the service. I had shrimp which were not fresh and my husband had scallops that were sandy. The lettuce in the salad was not even fresh. Maybe the meats are better than the seafood but I don't think I would go back to find out.This place does have... More

Went for dinner at about 8:30pm. Place crowded already. Space attractive with some outdoor dining also. My husband and I split the salmon carpaccio which was not great quality and as overwhelmed by the Parmesan cheese slices. Then we had pork shoulder served covered in potato chips. No vegetables on the menu which apparently is typical. I could not eat... More
