My wife and I wanted to have a very nice dinner for our first night in Ushuaia, so through the advice of Daniel the Arakur hotel where we stayed, we discovered this exceptional family run restaurant. The chef, Ernesto Vivian, who is the owner came to our table to advise us, his wife and son were every 5 minutes at... More

Some friends told me that they had had the best meal of their lives in this restaurant so I had to try it. It did not disappoint. I had the best sea bass (well that's what they call it but it's a bigger fish than we know it in the UK) that I had ever had. It was just outstanding.... More

The place is on a hill, but the views are beautiful. The service was excellent, perfect English and clear explanation about the entrees. The sea bass with brown butter was out of this world and the filet mignon with prune sauce, excellent. Great experience in a very pleasant atmosphere at the end of the world.

The restaurant is nicely located 10 minutes walk from the centre of town and, as it is uphill, you get a view of the Beagle Channel albeit with houses and the odd power pole in the foreground. We had the scallop starter and king crab main (centolla Kaupe). The food was excellent - but on the expensive side and, unfortunately,... More

Another restaurant recommended by local and tour agent, one of the best restaurants and always full. Luckily I booked earlier, ie 6.30 so I can still get a good seat with fantastic view. From appetiser and dessert all are very very satisfying, I wish I could go back there again.

Visited Kaupe restaurant on recommendation from a friend, and I was absolutely delighted. Arrived at 1900 and were the first customers. Many tables were reserved, so if you plan to visit later in evening it is probably advisable to make a reservation. The staff were excellent. Extremely helpful and attentive, and spoke excellent English. Having read some reviews on Tripadvisor,... More

I went to have dinner here because I had heard that they serve the best king crab in the Ushuaia. I have to say I was not disappointed. You can order from a regular menu or there is a tasting menu for 95 dollar. If you choose the last one like we did, you get a wide variety of different... More
