Visited this restaurant for dinner on December 26. The place was highly rated but the food was pretty ordinary Argentinean fare. Unfortunately, our waiter forgot to bring us one of the dishes we ordered and never bothered to apologize. We were supposed to receive complimentary...More

We loved it here. It could be on the pricey side, but we didn't mind since the food was fantastic and the service was fabulous. We consider this restaurant as one of the more authentic restaurants in Argentina.

El Patacon has an ambience that is charming from an architectural perspective with beautiful lake views. The food offerings got a somewhat mixed reception from our party of 4. Two of us took starters, a smoked trout that was well presented and delicious and a...More

Our hosts at the hotel we are staying in suggested the El Patacon for dinner. The exterior and interior are impressive with the use of wood everywhere. Upon arrival we were treated to a nice glass of white wine with framboise added. The menu was...More

It's a beautiful place, but the food is not as impressive as the decoration and details of the place itself.
