We were recommended this restaurant and it was sensational. The food was fantastic and the beer and wine just as good. I had the pork and it was delicious. It's not cheap but the food is super quality.

The food here was great! We had the tenderloin and sirloin steak and they were both great! The meat came perfectly prepared with special sauce and side dish. The pricing is a bit high but we felt we got our money’s worth here! Would recommend...More

I had the Lomo (tenderloin). It was fantastic. As was the tiramisu dessert. Service is also great and professional. Would definitely recommend to eat in El Chalten.

This place is really cute, very smokehouse and the service is good. Get there early (before 7) to avoid waiting. I had the lomo and it was excellent!

So unless you're booked on an overpriced tour, you can't make a reservation for this restaurant. That's a shame, because it's an excellent restaurant with reasonable prices (when you consider the quality of the food) and lots of people want to eat here. If you...More

Visited twice based on Lonely Planet recommendations. Possibly the best steaks we have ever eaten: one night a Bit Chorizo, the next a ribeye with a Malbec reduction sauce. Absolutely perfect

Around there the hours aren’t so concrete, but they likely open around 6 and will stay open until at least 11pm or so...until the people stop showing. It’s probably the best place in town so there is always a crowd. In the... More
