We loved it and wish to come back... Very nice meat options, Milanesa, Milanesa Suiza, nice beer as well. Very family style, and also locals love it.

This is a bodegon offering simple, delicious home style food. It is frequented by mostly locals. It is very cheap. However it is cash only.

I got the lemon trout, and I was expecting it to be a little crunchy. It came with about 1/4 inch of water on the plate. It was a good size portion for the price, but just didn't like the taste I was waiting for in Bariloche!

Our hostel recommended this place and we were not disappointed. We shared the huge milanesa between the two of us and still could barely finish. It was really good and cheap compared to most restaurants in town. The atmosphere was simple and enjoyable. It's a popular place, a bit outside of the city center but still packed!

Packed, packed, packed. Too many tables, too many people. Fast food. I did not like the surrondings either. I would not come back but my higher expectations are the main reason. Anyways, big portions and good price.

If you are fortunate enough to come here, GET THE CORDERO PATAGONICO! It's soooo good and the rosemary sauce that comes with it compliments it PERFECTLY. This is the only restaurant in Argentina that I've been to where the side salad size doesn't make me want to weep, being that I love a good dose of veggies. The waiters and... More

First of all let me mention this is not a glitzy 5 star establishment for all you flashy folks - this is a friends / family style restaurant with incredibly (yet basic) cuisine at a serious bargain price, with gr8 views! We were walking around asking locals for a nice cheap place and they all sang "La Fonda" before we... More
