We were at Il Gabbiano during our stay at Bariloche for an amazing dinner. All dishes were perfect and the staff attention was magnificent. If you ever come to Bariloche, you should pay a visit to Il Gabbiano for sure!

This restaurant suffers from voting inflation. It is nowhere near as good as suggested by people on TA. We have been to several good Italian restaurants around the world, and this is not one of them. The food was not terrible, but it's something an average chef can make at home (we had the spaghetti carbonara and rigatelli with tomato... More

Our dinner was good HOWEVER....we were told the restaurant would pick us up from our hotel and return us and then the day of our reservation they said their car broke down and it ended up costing us 500 additional pesos ....BEWARE!!!

This hotel was recommended to us by our hotel (and confirmed by TA). At midway through our trip, it was nice to have a break from all the red meat. The restaurant was a short distance from our hotel, but know that it's maybe 20-30 minutes from downtown Bariloche. It is lovely- lush gardens, separate dining areas, lots of light... More

I've been to Il Gabbiano a few times where at this point the waiter knows what I got the previous time and the exact wine, now that is service my friends! The dishes are stunningly delicious and having good italian is a great break from the steak. Love the atmosphere of this place and I feel like I am right... More

We went with our 4 years old kid. Everything was delicious. They even served us a special half portion of spaghettis with fresh tomato sauce for him, and he loved it! Great service too! We're definitely coming back next time!

If you are staying a Llao Llao, don't miss this place. They will come pick you up and drive you back and although not cheap, you save money on cab fare, which more than makes up the difference. The homemade trout ravioli is fabulous, and they have an excellent wine list of local Mendoza wines.

One of the best dining experiences I've ever had. From the food to the service, everything is top notch. The manager at our hotel recommend this restaurant to us and even drove us there. We were not disappointed. The appetizers, entrees, desserts, cocktails, and to to mention the impeccable service - everything was exceptional. They even served us complimentary home-made... More

If I were Italian I'd call this place home. Fresh, homemade pasta to die for, the service was great - friendly and attentive and the wine list extensive enough to satisfy the most unsatisfiable of vino drinkers. My wife and I shared a mushroom and polenta starter which was divine and I had rabbit for mains which was cooked to... More
