Settled on this place as my boyfriend was very keen on having some king Crab. The decor was rustic but interesting to look at and the staff were lovely. Food was great, boyfriend loved the crab and my steak was cooked perfectly. Dessert was Apple Strudel which was nice and a good wine selection. If you have spare notes to... More

Beautiful and understated we walked by not expecting much. But I was keen to try out the famous King Crab around these parts and it had a Tripadvisor sign on the window so thought it worth to give it a shot... I was pretty impressed. Though the waitress spoke limited English, she was very pleasant and sprightly. The food was... More

My girlfriends and I ate here our first night in Ushuaia. Would not recommend. The bread and seafood spread they gave us at the beginning was delicious but our cod was disgusting. It was chewy and undercooked but little improved after we asked them to cook it more. We left feeling ripped off for a pricey meal and felt even... More

Such a disappointment. The Centolla should be the star. Instead it was served in a warm garlic butter that completely ruined it. The rabbit was tough and over pickled. The same pickle was also used for the mussels!! Cute restaurant. Nice staff. Too expensive and the food could be a lot better.

The restaurant was cute and the wait staff were very pleasant. Atmosphere was good. The food however left me disappointed. Tried the rabbit for entree, could not tell what you were eating and heavily pickled. We had the famous Crab for main in butter, oil and garlic very disappointing. Expensive compared to a beautiful meal we had our first evening... More

Very good restaurant, catering to a mix of local people (some at least...) and tourists, just in front of the port. I'd recommend obviously centolla, but also scallops and merluza negra were wonderful. Good list of local wines. Good service. Definitely on the pricey side for Argentina

It was a pleasure to have dinner at Tia Elvira Restaurante Even being a small place. This place has the best scallop I have ever eat! Have to come back soon!
