Ate here twice while in El Chalten. The first time, the waitress forgot to put in our order, so we waited an extra 20 minutes. She was very apologetic. We weren’t in a hurry and weren’t particularly bothered but she gave us a free dessert...make up for it. We thought we would go back the next day because they were so friendly and generous. Good burgers, pizza and pasta (the carbs sat well after a day of hiking!)More

NEVER EAT THERE, worst place ever, on arriving day 4 of us went for dinner, food was not tasty at all, acctualy it was awful but we decide to eat as next day early morning we wanted to leave early for trekking, so no time...waisting for searching for another restaurant, after we went to our beds, we realised someting 8s wrong with our stomachs, but it was to late. All night diarrhea and vomiting, after pizza and stew 2 of us end up in hospital and 2 others were 3 days in bed. It ruined our time in El Chalten, this place should not exist. I don't recomend to anyone.More

Super crowded - make reservations! LOUD - tables too close together. Hang out for folks after trekking/hiking/climbing - lots of big parties (we were a party of 5) and lots of loud folks/drinking etc... Food is OK - but nothing great. We had other better...meals in El Chalten (El Parador being the best). Service was average - probably due to so many people and the wait staff not being able to easily move around the restaurant. We did ask to be moved to a quieter table (and yes, they finally accommodated us) - but, it was still loud and crowded. If you like loud crowds and OK food - this may be the place for you!More

My wife and I loved our experience; I had the Lamb ravioli and we shared a “Penguin” full of wine and and it was incredible. Great spot!

Staff were professional and friendly, and the portions were huge! Great WiFi and centrally located nearer the terminal. The appetizer salsa with the bread was so good! Mains were ok.

Had the lentil soup which was excellent. The service was friendly and the interior felt cozy when we had to escape the Patagonian rain.

The "Ahonikenk" (Restaurante Ahonikenk Chalten Fonda Patagonia) restaurant is owned by the same owner of Don Guerra, but this is cheaper and with a more comfort-food menu. The foods and ambiance are more rustic, the later being decorated with photos of mountaineering and shirts of...football teams. It is located right next to the city entrance so it has easy access, and the dishes have big portions, ideal if you are hungry or want to share. The service was good and friendly. The menu has lots of options, between meats, soups, pizzas, pastas, regional dishes and desserts. We have been also there in the past and the food still is good, satisfying with the portions, and ideal after trekking all day in the cold. We visited it last year in Spring, and the quality was the same. We had as a free starter bread and lentil vinaigrette and we ordered a Schnitzel with French Fries, a Lentils with Red Sausage Stew, 2 Cokes, and a Brownie with Dulce de Lette and Ice Cream, being the bill with the 10% service tax added of 940ARS, that was around 20US$ at the time. It is a good place to eat if you need a more rustic (casual), but tasty comfort food, with an excellent cost-benefit especially for those who are in a budget and want a good meal.More

A very sweet little restaurant with a lovely waiter. The food is decent enough with big portions, and our waiter was lovely. This is one of the only 3 restaurants open in winter.
