Excellent, and a real gem for Calafate. Starting with a great location off the main street, the diners look out on a garden. The food was impressive and we even took photos. The Patagonian cabernet was a nice selection. The menu had a nice selection and would work for families, young and old. As the diners were on our visit.

We were so impressed by the food here that we visited twice. The food was great - we highly recommend the Patagonian lamb and grilled vegetables. Good wine list with some great Patagonian wines.

Nice restaurant, it feels like a place hidden in the mountains, which is true, friendly people, it's part of the Alamos hotel. Very good place and tasty food.

Yes, this restaurant is not cosy and it is earlier in the evening somewhat touristic but what do you expect in a touristic village like El Calefate? We enjoyed the services of a very nice attentive waitress. My wife had lamb rack which was okay, my 'cordero asero' cooked in front of you eyes by a dedicated "BBQ man" was... More

This alpine style upscale restaurant is located in a hotel but don't be fooled because the food is excellent. The dining room is formal but inviting with candlelit tables and impeccable service. The menu combines traditional Argentine cuisine with international flavors and all dishes are expertly prepared. The king crab ravioli is terrific!

We very much enjoyed our dinner at La Posta on our recent one night stay in El Calafate. We were especially grateful for its very high quality because the other wonderful restaurants that we had remembered from our previous stay in Calafate were all totally booked and unavailable. Thus, it was indeed very lucky for us that the hotel in... More

Regrettably, this was the most disappointing dining experience of our 3-week trip to Patagonia. Our experience with this restaurant differed significantly from those of other reviewers. La Posta Parrilla is an upscale restaurant in El Calafate, a major jumping- off point in Argentine Patagonia. The parrilla restaurant, which is affiliated with a hotel, specializes in meat and we had high... More

A classy restaurant set in parkland. The staff are professional, the wine list interesting and the food very well presented. The room is large yet it maintains its intimacy. As usual the lomo was excellent, more unusually it was seasoned and served with a sauce.

We chose La Posta to have a farewell meal with friends. The setting is gorgeous, set in lush green lawns & the restaurant itself is well laid out & spacious, but it all felt a wee bit stuffy & formal for a get together meal with friends, where we wanted to chat & giggle! The asado was delicious. Yes, but... More
