Good, but too much on the plate

Place looks inviting to see the rack of lamb being prepared on the open charcoal fire. Then you order some sides and salad and all of sudden the table is overloaded with - excellent - food. We could easily have shared each other's order and still leave with a full tummy.

This is a traditional Argentine Parrilla with great food, good service and very reasonable. When we asked locals where we should go for good grilled Argentine meat and all noted this place as the value option. Delicious! Our best meal in El Calafate.

One of the best window "kitchens" ever! Nice service, first time I had a lamb parilla and it was excellent (no sweetbreads made it easier for me!). Salmon was "wonderful". Very reasonably priced, busy, and you can see why

The restaurant was recommended by the hotel and rightly so. The asmosphere was very good, the staff was very friendly . The food was excellent, and not very expensive and the wines were terrific. We had a very good evening!

Good atmosphere as they have a display of lamb grill at the window. Food was mediocre. We ordered a lamb grill and a Mi Viejo lamb and both were too dried. The salad was boring. Wine choice was only average. The restaurant was busy and service was almost none. Price was inexpensive. Do not expect presentation of food. Not fine... More

Filet mignon is not on the menu. Waiter tells us they are in very high demand, and so he will come back around to us only once, and then we need to tell him everything we'll be eating and drinking because he doesn't want to waste time. The steak was as tough as a dog leash. I sent it back,... More

There might restaurants with a view, but when I get to a restaurant I am there for the food and the service. Its food is authentic, lamp mostly on fire (like a spit) and its amazing. Went there once and then again with a group of friends. Try the grilled lamp, if you don't try anything else. They have trout... More

This place is a MUST VISIT. As you may be aware, lamb is very famous in El Calafate. And this place serves as the perfect place to experience that. So, definitely order one of the lamb dishes, the Empanadas (THE best ones I've ever tried in Argentina) as well as the starter with the local fish (forgot the exact name).... More

Our group of 5 was dropped off in the middle of Calafate after our Hielo y Aventura excursion. We headed to MV for dinner based on the reviews and the recommendation from the driver from Remises Condor that we used from the airport. The restaurant has a large open dining area, with the grill area to the right as you... More
