They don't know how to fix a cheese fondue.. The cheese was a clump in both pots that we ordered and adding wine and lemon juice helped only a little. They served it with cubes of fried chicken and fried ham and fried sausages and we had to ask for bread.

As with some of the other contributors here, chose this place as it looked like a cosy little place. And of course they had the Pollo disco which was quite a steal at 270 pesos (yes apparently the price increased from 240 previously). I have to say the portion is quite generous and definitely enough for 2 or even 3... More

Good service Quality food but nothing special! A little pricey! We ordered a pizza and a salad and payed a lot more than we think would be fair! By the way, if you are looking for a pizza, there are better options, many of them even use wood ovens to cook them... Finally, I would definitely renew the chairs!! They... More

If you are deprived of taste buds, you may not notice that the napkins have the same flavor as the food. Ordered pasta with extra cost for sauce, and could not stand to eat it.

We called in for the pollo disco special $240 for two people. It was busy too...must be good?! The actual dish was plenty for two - possibly three people. Plenty of chicken and taste. We enjoyed it. But why only 3 stars? The cheapest wine cost $190 for a low quality bottle (everyone else was drinking water or coke) The... More

If you come from any tour tired and starving you will find this place very convenient. Is open till 4pm for lunch time. We had classic Argentinean milanese, it was tasty but didn't wow us. The dish comes with fries but we switched it for mash potatoes and they tried to charge us the mash as additional when the waitress... More

After spending four days in El Calafate, I tried more than 10 restaurants. This one is my favorite for lunch. Delicious food and affordable prices. This is our third time. I highly recommend the chicken Disco dish.

Funny how reviews vary but you can only speak as you find. We were served by a pleasant girl and the chef and we did try to speak Spanish. They were very hospitable. I ordered trout which was great , my wife had the lomo with some lovely gratin potatoes. Reasonably priced for el Calefate but you have to accept... More

I think this restaurant is average, we ordered a "trucha" and a chiken steak, we saw a lots of other people getting their dishes while ours never got ready. They charged us for the breads they offered before dinner, but didn`t warned us about that before put the breads over the table. The fries were raw inside.

Our entrees arrived within 10 minutes of each other and our main courses never arrived. We left hungry and annoyed that they didn't even care!
