This was the best diner we have had during our traveling in Patagonia. The owners are super welcoming, the food is delicious and the place is warm and cosy. Hope that I may ever come back to this place.

Lomo steak was just ok. The trout was nice too. Side salads were served too cold and not in room temperature. And this is the problem nothing was realy exciting or outstanding as i expected.

One of the best meals we had on our Patagonian trip, lovely cosy warm wood chalet restaurant, warm ambience, very personal service. Food amazing, had trout that could not be surpassed, fresh and tasty. Lovely starter of puréed carrot with olive oil, garlic and onion- absolutely delicious, and all washed down with a gorgeous bottle of Malbec. Would highly recommend

The lamb stew was not very warm. When we notified the waiter of this, he took back the dish for heating... More

Late Sep/oct is still low season so not many places open. Glad we found La Tapera - very good stew and lamb ravioli + reasonably priced good wine. Ate there twice in 3 days. Friendly staff, cozy atmosphere.

Great meat (lomo) 260 Pesso. Truta (trout fish) 250 Pesso. Great selecion of wines. PS. A small suggestion to a chef: IMHO mayby lomo meat does not go very well with a Malbec reducion sauce.....

We went there already a few years ago, and nothing changed (but we forgot what made us a little reticent to go there again). The place is very nice, the food is good, the menu doesn't offer a lot of choice. One problem was my partner has some allergy to a few items (garlic for example) and, there, that makes... More

After 4 days of camping and average food in the national park, we needed something serious by coming back to the town! The place is cozy and nice and the service is perfect. The steak was well cooked and I recommend you to save your money to have a good night there!
