Food didn't taste great. I had the crab salad, which was bland. My boyfriend had the Steak, it was ok. The service was horrendous. We were left waiting for a long time at every stage of our meal.

Painfully slow even to give us a menu and ask us for drinks. The place wasn't very busy either so it looked like the staff just didn't understand how to wait tables. Food was pretty good but a little expensive for what you got. Will not return here.

Recommended by a tour guide for crab salad. After taking our order, ten minutes later were informed that they "were out of crab." After another ten minutes, we were informed that they were also "out of chardonnay." The substitute seafood salads were barely edible; my wife lost hers a few hours later. The server became involved with a party of... More

I was staying at the hostel up the street (Antarctica Hostel) and I happened to notice this restaurant on the map in my LP as being close by, so I wondered over. I got the King Crab souffle, as that I wanted to try the crab in Ushuaia, and it was about the only dish without onions - I couldn't... More

With so many excellent reviews and a local who said it is the best in the city, I am convinced I simply chose wrong in what resulted in my most dissapointing meal in Ushuaia. The Suckling Crab gratin was no more than shredded crab pieces in a bland white sauce topped with inexcusable canned Parma! My carrot salad that was... More

This restaurant has a nice atmosphere and serves good seafood Chilean cuisine. I like the Rabas (half portion) as appetizer and had a delicious cod fish portion. In fact, being at many seafood restaurants in Ushuaia during my stay, I believe this is one of the best and I would rank it better than Freddy's Cantina Fueguina, Volver and El... More

Small, but good. King Crab is king in Ushuaia, and it's very good here. Staff doesns't speak English, but with sign language, you'll get fed good food.

The restaurant came highly recommended by some older guidebooks and we went for it after a flight from Buenos Aires. The food was good but not great. We had a crepe with minced seafood and the house mixed seafood with fries. The crepe was good but the sauce did not add to the taste of seafood and the total "artistic... More

Asked one of our guides where locals eat and he recommended this place. It's quite hidden, coming from San Martin (main street), take a left up on Antartida Argentina and look for an unassuming door on the left side of the road. Take the stairs up and you're there. Closed between 15h00 and 19h30 - same as most other restaurants,... More
