We were looking for something a little different and found it here with some excellent examples of local food (locro- a stew with beef, chorizo sausage, sweet corn beans and veg/ potato.) we saw a good number of clients turned away and wonder if they could make better use of the space they had.

I had a fairly pleasant meal, marred mostly by the glacial service -- and I can't fault the one waitress, the only server for a full restaurant on a Saturday night in peak tourist season; she worked hard, but one employee just isn't enough, it seems. For a main dish, I was intrigued by the Locro, a bean/corn/meat stew, but... More

We stopped here for an early dinner at 5. They were open and had lots of vegetarian choices. Delicious tomato soup. My Caesar salad was perfect. The spinach empanada was good. My husband was not in love with his quinoa burger. Fresh food and decent wifi.

We dined at the Senyeira in mid November and we have been very satisfied of the meal: apetizers with home-made chimichurri,fresh and accurately prepared Locro and Carbonera within a simple table, giving the sense of class. The Malbec wine we choose was good. I would recommend this place for couples or small groups that would like to finely dine in... More

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.

Thank Chouen
