Great little restaurant with wonderful small menu. Great skirt steak and empanadas. Good wines at reasonable prices. Very small menu for meat eaters. Very welcoming hosts.

Just spent a lovely evening there. Not at all pretentious. the menu is simple and basic. The proprietors speak excellent English. We had the Empanadas, the mushroom dish, and shared the ribeye steak with salad. The steak weighs circa 440 g or about a pound; plenty for most to share. Highly recommended - and at a quite moderate price!

Having noted this had been rated as the second best value restaurant in Bariloche and nearby where we were staying we made an online (English) enquiry and received offer of a table next night if we could eat early (which is 730pm in Argentina). With friendly service, succulent steak cooked as ordered, a wonderful mushroom bruschetta to start and a... More

We had dinner here one night in staying in Bariloche and we were lucky to get a table. We arrived quite early and initially we only had the table for two hours, they ended up being great and let us stay longer as another table had freed up. Reserve if you can! We both had the steak and the meat... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local and we made reservations early the next day. It is a small, couple run restaurant, he does the cooking and she serves and runs it. Very personal, and small menu, but so good. We had empanadas and grilled mushrooms on toast, then steak and flan. Everything was absolutely delicious, we ate... More

We came because we read about the empanadas. We were very late arriving with no reservation on a busy night. By luck, we were seated at a fantastic two person table The ambiance is great. Rustic and artisanal and antique crafts everywhere. Renada was our server and she was a dream. Recommended reasonable portions so we could sample both the... More

Resembles a lovely country restaurant in rural New England; simple and attractive decor, with nicely spaced and comfortable tables; not much of a view of the lake, the major feature of Bariloche, but most would have had multiple views of that and other lakes for days anyway. A limited but perfectly balanced menu both in food and wine. Some superb... More
