Pros: Nice place, good atmosphere, nice people. Cons: expensive, small portions. The attention was OK, but the food was just decent and quite expensive.

The ambiance of this restaurant was lovely, however, the house specialty is red meat, so I certainly made an error ordering fish here. The only taste in the ceviche was that of lemon, lemon and more lemon. The trout was cold and the lemon sauce was tasteless. Overall, I was not impressed with anything I ordered, however, it could be... More

One of the city's best restaurants. Serves traditional Patagonian cousin. You need to reserve up front otherwise you will not get a table. Place is small and crowded. Service is slow so don't come hungry. All in all good worth of money. Closed during cristmas and new year!

With Reserva now closed and under new name and ownership, Ku surges to the top of SMDLA restaurants. Simply excellent. Great service. Laid back atmosphere. Great LOMO

The best meat I had in San Martin was here. It was a very nice service, my friends and I had a wonderful time. We even had Ferner with coke (a typical drink in Argentina).

The other night we went to dinner at Ku with friends, it was packed, luckily we had booked, it is winter holidays in San Martín de los Andes so it does not surprise me. We had pasta which was well cooked and very tasty, waiters were welcoming. We had a good dinner and it is a quaint place to spend... More

For the second time, we went to San Martin for ski and vacation. One of favorite place to eat Patagonian food style is no doubt this small place called KU. The lamb is so great that you have to make reservation for this plate, but you can choose the spectacular "ciervo" (deer) that is a typical meat prepared in a... More

It has a great crew, that combines perfectly with a nice ambience and a really good food. It has a good variety of wines. In a few words a good place to have a great dinner.

We came across Ku having checked out Dona Quela which is almost next door. Dona Quela looked a bit starchy to our eyes with its pristine linen and the server in his "garcon" apron. Ku in contrast is a busy, hot, friendly place which cooks up very good beef, pork and chicken over the fire. We ate here on consecutive... More
