I ordered the seafood pasta and it was very good - lots of fresh seafood but the pasta was too soft for my liking (think that may consistently so in Argentina). It's no frills and the service is very good. I liked the place. Might eat there again.

The restaurant is located right in the center of town, right off the main street. Excellent and high-quality fish and seafood at a very decent price. We (2 couples) ate here more than once and loved the food every time. Personally I loved the paella and the seafood casseroles. They'll add spice, on request, if you like it hot. You'll... More

We had lunch at Chico's after a boat trip on the Beagle Channel. The waiter was very friendly and the atmosphere familiar. We had excellent lomo on a pepper sauce and great noquis gauchita! Salad was OK... Prices are reasonable for Ushuaia. I can highly recommend the place!

My husband and I had dinner here and we enjoyed it so much, we came back the following night as well. Once we had the lomo with pepper sauce and the other time the grilled lomo. Both were excellent, to the point and very big portions. The side salat was nice too, plus they have a good wine selection. Value... More

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
