Food was fantastic. Steak cooked to perfection and nicely seasoned as were the potatoe wedges that accompanied it. Stew was very tasty and a nice sized portion. Excellent log cabin character, very friendly staff, great service and good tunes at a nice background volume. Best...meal so far in Argentine.More

Food was normal, OK nothing special. Service was aimed to get you as soon as possible out of the restaurant. When the main came, I had not yet finished my starter. The bill and the complementary drink came before we finished our wine. I would...not recommend it to friends.More

The food in this restaurant is delicious and varied! Among other things, our group enjoyed the gnocchi (best I have ever had!), the steaks, the blue cheese and caramelized pear salad, the flan, the strawberry ice cream, and more! The service was very good. This...place gets busy because it is so popular. They even allowed us to pay in US dollars and give us a generous exchange rate!More

So good! Must eat here. Started with fresh baked bread, steaming from the oven. Then had the pork tenderloin which was the perfect combination of crispy, juicy, and flavorful and complemented by a tangy sauce. The steak in Malbec sauce was also delicious and grilled...perfectly. Excellent quality meats. Then a bottle of Malbec for $5. Followed by tiramisu (the weak point of the meal). Wooden chalet decor with lots of decorative license plates and friendly service. Reservations recommendedMore

La Tapera is the truth. Everything that comes out of the kitchen is a winner. Beetroot salad is a large, creative, legit veggie dish. The steak is delicious as is the wine. The show-stopper is the Pork Shoulder with honey and beer glaze. Comes with...a side of mashed pumpkin. Divine. Excellent service, a passionate team, a unique and confident style. Make a reservation early and if you can't get a table for dinner, stop by for lunch.More

Our local guide recommended this place to us, which is always a good sign! It's not on the main street, but well worth a 5 min walking detour. Quirky decor which felt very in keeping with the vibe of El Chalten, and amazing food -...really high quality with a homey touch. Highly recommend for either steak or fish!More

Great food and service, very local atmosphere and the food was reasonable and tasted great. It does get busy so but we didn’t have a problem when we went at 7:15 but it filled up by 8pm. It’s my wife and I loved the food...and you don’t need any starters/apps as the meals are a nice portion. Prices are great as at a $410 peso to dollar rate it’s about $15-$18 for a meal. They also except credit card and have the black market rate for exchange which is great.More

Delicious food and friendly staff, it's a winner for us! We had salads which were super fresh and tasty, the stew and the salmon were delicious as well, but the dessert of creme caramel with dulce de leche was out of this world! We would...highly recommend it.More

Six of us who bonded during the W Trek in Torres Del Paine traveled together to El Chalten and enjoyed a terrific meal here. They don't take reservations, so you line up for their 7 p.m. opening. It's fairly small and fills up quickly. I...can't recall what everyone ate, but we were all happy and enthused; the prices were good and there's a little surprise at the end.More

Excellent food and service. The restaurant doesn’t take reservations so be prepared for a wait. The staff is very nice and the ambiance is great. Probably the best restaurant we ate at in El Chalten
