Restaurant has quite good choice of vegetarian food. The ambience is good and staff is very friendly. They help us call our hotel transport after our meal.

A friend and I split the Crepes del Campo and the pasta tasting dishes. Both were delicious. The cover charge was a little pricey but overall worth it. Could work for families. Nice wait staff.

We had a very good dinner at La Cocina. Warm and friendly restaurant. The trout was excellent as was the vegetable risotto.

My husband and I found the food to be mediocre and it was one of the more expensive meals of our trip to Argentina. Really disappointing, I would not recommend.

Really big portions! I got the grilled chicken and my boyfriend got the steak. Both our dishes came with 2 portions of meat. It was tasty food and service was good.

Ordered the pumpkin soup and a rump steak with mushroom sauce. Soup was watery. Steak was very under cooked. Sauce was watery. Below average.

Ordered risotto and was disappointed. Even the service was a little unwelcoming. Risotto was very watery and the pumpkin soup aswell, watered down

The resturant opened its doors for dinner at 19:00. We enjoyed the patagonian lamb and sirloin soft like butter steak with mixed mush and mix salads. No wifi available in the restaurant.
