Como Vaca is the best restaurant in El Chalten that we visited during our weeklong stay. Mariano tends the grill and served up some of the most flavorful grilled lamb (Cordero Patagonico) that I've ever had, for about 12 USD! I miss this place and wish I could have grilled lamb every time I finished a long day on the... More

I'm back home after 18 day travel around Argentina, but I still dream about the lamb I ate in this restaurant - melting in the mouth and so so soft! Beef was excellent as well and prices very affordable. Excellent value for money. We've been to multiple restaurants in the country, from fast food to 5-star class restaurants, but Como... More

We have gone to ComoVaca at least five times for dinner over two long trips to El Chalten and found it good value for dinner. Decent-sized steak of good quality for the price you pay (ARS130 for 300g in Feb 2016) and which are cooked as requested. Also friendly, cheerful service from the waitress. We made the mistake of trying... More

This is a nice and cosy little restaurant. You can actually watch you steak being grilled and this steak was certainly the best one I've ever had. It came with French fries and a salad and I was in heaven. Reasonable prices.

I think we were very unfortunate to be served meat which had gone off. I tried eating some but it had a horrible taste and then after smelling it I knew the knew the meat was spoiled. We informed the staff and the waitress promptly removed the plate and disposed of the meat after smelling it. However, we received absolutely... More

Best meat in town for a very reasonable price, Service very friendly and fast. I would recommend you to try the chorizo sausage cause it's like a poem for your palate. WiFi connections is not so good but it's not for it you're coming for ;-)

My husband and I visited this restaurant as it was nearly next door to our hotel. We were the first to arrive when they opened, and were seated by a sullen waiter who looked like he'd rather be somewhere else. I ordered a glass of white wine and received a lukewarm glass of semi-sweet wine - not a great start.... More

Every time we visit El Chalten, we always, always, come here a number of times during our stay. Nobody who has been with us has ever said a bad word about their experience here. Not much to say other than great food, great drink, great atmosphere, great service. Vegetarian options also, not just steaks.
