This is the typical "parrilla" for tourists in El Calafate, except for the fact that the waiters are there to serve and solve any problem that might occur. Good quality meat, good (but simple) wine selection and exceptional service. (in Calafate the concept of service...More

My dish was excellent, awesome meat! Service wasn't very good though as the staff wasn't that friendly and it took always some time until they came to attend you. But still recommend this place, it's a restaurant, so it's still about the food ;)

The food at Rick's was rather decent and within walking distance of my Hosteria. Unfortunately that is where the praise ends. Originally we stepped inside after reviewing the menu and seeing that a 'Parilla por dos' was $270AR. My girlfriend and I got our table...More

This was my restaurant of choice after trying all the others in town. It's a great place and always busy. All restaurants in Calafate are expensive so I would rate this one good value for money as the food was great. The staff are very...More
