The food is so good that we went twice on our 1st and 4th nights. Food is fresh and delicious without being too salty or fatty. The owner is a smiling hospitable lady who's into healthy cooking. She genuinely cared about customers and made sure we've had a good experience, while not very focused on making profits. It was very... More

Great service...bread and dips are taste much better than other shops...we ordered two main course and both were tasty...very traditional meals and value for money rather than just steak and fish in the menu.

It's small, it's comfortable and it's real Argentine, an island in the midle of all the fast growing fast food locations on the foot of Mount Fitzroyat close to the door of one of the best National Parks Argentine has to offer . The hot and cold plates from the small menue are all home made and carefully prepared. Beef... More

This restaurant seems to be a very popular option in El Chalten. The food is good and the service is friendly. We are not big meat eaters but people around us were obviously enjoying their steaks. A reasonable choice for vegetarians. Well priced. Recommended.

We enjoyed our experience at La Senyera. I had a lamb stew and my wife had a grilled chicken and vegetables. Salad was not part of the regular menu but our waitress/owner was very accommodating and had some made up for us. It is simple, basic and honest food and the service was very pleasant. Fine dinning this is not,... More

We ended up eating at la Senyera four times on our trip, as we found the steaks simply amazing. They are beautiful and massive pieces of meat, cooked to perfection (rare, of course). Service is also great, attentive but not overbearing. They also have pretty fast wifi (by local standards). The only downside, I guess, is the creepy mannequin occupying... More

Nice, cosy and very well managed restaurant in the middle of El Chalten. The menu is simple and based on local tradition (what else are you looking for?). Open until late. Good service, very good price / quality ration

Tried the steak and veggie stew at La Senyera. Both dishes were good, the service was good (even though we had some issues with the tables initially; reservation's recommended) and overall it was a good experience.

We showed up about 9:15 without a reservation and we got one of the last few tables. The hostess was the waitress and she was cheerful and happily took the time to serve us. It was a big day for us (hiked to Laguna Torre) and we were a bit tired, but looking for a simple meal. We ended up... More

Having eaten enormous pieces of cow whilst travelling around Argentina it was a welcome respite to try something else and the stews here were hearty and tasty ( cow is also on the menu). Service was friendly and efficient in a rustic setting. Prices were reasonable . All in all excellent.
