This was a stop near the end of a cruise tour while our ship was in the Ushuaia port. It was a great tour and following a bit of hiking, we were hungry. This is very casual and the tables were somewhat crowded together. Our food was served family style (probably as requested by the tour operator) with plates of... More

We stopped in this restaurant as part of the lakes Escondido and Fagnano tour. The star here is the lamb, so go for it. I requested another dish and the lamb was Clearly the right choice. Several groups arrived at the same time so the waiters were súper busy so service was somehow affected..

I happened to go on a sunday to ski in this place. When I tried to eat something, although the place was still almost empty, I was told all the tables were reserved for the lamb-eaters. Since the place is quite isolate, one doesn´t have any options. In the end they allowed me to eat, suggesting I should gulp my... More
