Can't get enough of Vaca

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.

This local restaurant was delicious and provided very good service. El Charlten was very crowded during our stay and someone recommended we try Como Vaca. We are so glad we did! It was romantic with delicious food! We were able to get away from the crowds and enjoy our dinner. Put this place on your list when you visit El... More

Hands down the past parrilla we had in Argentina! My wife and I actually ate here twice because it was so good. We got a fillet (lomo) each time we went and also tried some delicious lamb. The filet is probably the best filet I've ever had - cooked perfectly, tons of flavor. The service at Como Vaca was also... More

The restaurant is nice and the food is great and not so expensive. My reserve would be about some waiters who really smell alcoohol. This smelly breath during order almost made us leave for that

Como vaca ia cheaper than other restaurants in el Chalten. However, you get less than you pay. The place is horrible, very small and crowded. we order a soup, the portion was very small, it looks that it was left in the plate by other guests and they confused with a new portion,but, the owner explained me that people do...

I visited El Chalten with my mother last week, in awe of the beautiful vistas as well as looking for good Patagonian lamb. As we walked in, I must admit, I had very low expectations but... was I in for a wonderful surprise! I finally had an amazing, flavorful, cooked to perfection lamb. Although I am from Argentina, I've been... More

I don't know if it was the meat in this region but the way the cheif, was told by the concierge that he was the new owner, preppes a bit different from the way other resturant does. Yes, the meat in Patagonia is very good, but he bring it up to another level. The best part about this is when... More
