loved the place. the food is excellent, very cute, good wine and very fair prices. the place gets crowded so either have a reservation or wait. the meat is better than the fish, but both excellent and the portions are huge.

This is a small local restaurant off the main street in El Calafate. Both the service and the food were good. Local trout was cooked to perfection and tasty. While the steak was a bit tough, it was flavorful. The restaurant was very crowded and...More
