This is a small restaurant, centrally located. The food is excellent, with plenty of choices for different tastes. The staff are all very nice and attentive. The price is very reasonable.

Hello, This place is one of those simple restaurants with paper table cloth, but with an incredible food and great service. I would say is a must in Ushuaia if you can enjoy a simple menu but with great quality. The crab is just extraordinary,...More

We went by a recommendation of the hotel. We waited about 10 minutes in the line. The whole crab for two dish is great, the crab is delicious. We went also for grilled Negra merluza which was excellent as well

If you love crab, this is your place. We had crab soup and crab...so good! I repeat the crab was really good. The wait is worth it, but expect to wait an hour.

Definetly try the centolla (king crab) and the merluza negra (black cod), both amazing and juicy. Go early, even before the opening time, or you will have to wait a lot of time. Prices correct for what you get

They do take reservations. I do not know if they handle email. They speak only Castellano (their version of Spanish).
