Tasty king crab

The food was great to nice. The king crab was very good and also the sea food. The gnocchi was avarage. The downside is that the dishes are pretty small.

not only is the atmosphere casual but very local. the menu is extensive with such a wide variety of seafood, deciding what to eat is a chore unto itself. To make things easy, I recommend starting with the fried fish plate (fish, squid, crab, ect.) then the king crab casserole. their wine selection is great. and when all is said... More

It was calm when we arrived, but we gave it a try. Nice one! Very good centolla plate, honest prices for wine and food. Very good staff! Coming back tomorrow! Recommended.

Had the king crab natural style for entree and the king crab and squid casserole for main. This was ample for 2 people and was absolutely delicious. Not the cheapest around, but would highly recommend. Good and quick service.

In the Tierra del Fuego region, king crab forms part of the menu in most decent restaurants. Often, it is dressed or split into shreds and then served as a mound with or without a sauce and usually with semi intact portions of legs. The outside of this restaurant in Ushuaia is not very reassuring - a pink overpainting of... More

Loved the food, went back 3 times. Don't be put off by the wait, 4th in line behind us was seated within 4-5 minutes. It is so good everyone just waits patiently for their turn at a table. They don't rush you but must turn over their tables at least 5 times each night

We just arrived from Buenos Aires, were hungry, passed by. They specialise in crab which lured us in. The promise was better then the actual cold and already cracked crab. Very friendly family running the place, full of people coming in for a quick bite.

Great location right in the centre of town. I had the King Crab and Octopus casserole which I thought was wonderful and could almost have served two people. Wine list was also good and very reasonably priced. Friendly and quick service.

Pretty much the only reason we went here was as stated in the subject: it was open, and it had crab. They didn't have WHOLE crabs, in spite of the pictures outside - all deshelled and in chunks (so no idea if it was fresh or frozen or what.) We got the crab fuegina and the trout fuegina and some...
