We had lunch here and it was very good. Prices are somewhat the same as other restaurants in Ushuia.

I had a trucha patagonica cooked in alluminium sheet with potatoes. It was good.. maybe too home-made cos the aluminium got like glued to the fish and it was impossible to remove. But the fish was fresh and tasty. I enjoyed that meal. The place is simple.. excellent for families. Its rather cheap. Its the 5th place for dinner, in... More

Although we were traveling with a tour company, we had two nights in Ushuaia before boarding our vessel for Antarctica. We dropped into Chicho's because we could not find anything else open for our meal, and we knew very little about the area. We ordered from the local menu and loved every morsel. Very little English spoken. The menu had... More

Being dissapointed to learn they were out of King crab for which I was told was excellent there, I ordered the tongue for a starter and a seafood pasta main. The tongue was 3 large tender portions, delicious in a spicy fresh sauce. My main was a seafood pasta with the pasta being homemade perfection. The seafood mix were all... More

We ended up here after being personally escorted by one of the owners of our first choice restaurant as they were full and couldn't fit us in - how nice is that? The menus seemed identical so maybe the same owners. Anyway I was slightly dubious at first (big barn of a room, oilcloth chequered tablecloths, lots of noise) but... More

My friend and I enjoyed a delightful dinner here. I had the trout stuffed with king crab. Delightful! The warm and friendly service made the whole dining experience wonderful!

We asked our taxi driver to recommend us a restaurant that local people eat at. He recommended Chicho's and it turned out to be a great recommendation. They serve a variety of dishes - seafood, pasta, meat and more. The steak was delicious, as well as the fish and clums. Service was excellent as well. We certainly will go there... More

We came in for a late diner as the restaurant was on our path and did not regret it. We had fish (merluza) and seafood pasta and both where very good. The restaurant appeared to be popular with locals (never a bad sign). The wine list wast was decent too.

We ate here on there recommendation of our local tour guide as opposed to some of the more touristy restaurants that served king crab. We were fairly early for dinner by local standards but the service was prompt and courteous. While looking for lighter fare for a night, the king crab salad was wonderful, as were the green salads. There... More

We had a very nice meal here, all the seafood dishes were very good. But the fact that after waiting for 20 minutes we had to finally go to the bar for a final bill somewhat spoiled it. Not sure what the problem was, but they lost any interest of ours in dessert or tea when we could not get... More
