Description: Nyagatan Patagonia aims to offer guests the best of South American food, drink and atmosphere. With a focus on flame-grilled meat in all its guises and new interpretations of classic dishes from across South America, this restaurant wants to show guests the flavours that this continent has to offer. Local knowledge and local ingredients make this a colourful experience. There is a wide assortment of wines from Chile and Argentina, with local grapes such as Carmenere, Malbec and Torrontes dominating. All wines can be ordered by the glass. The Gotland brewery's high-class beer is the perfect complement to the rich food on offer. The restaurant also offers Quilmes beer from Argentina, a brew that is often hard to find in this part of the world. The cocktail menu contains both classic and innovative mixes and draws inspiration from South America.

“Nice but slightly shaky”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We arrived at Patagonia more or less exactly on time and after some discussion were told they couldn't find our reservation. But since we had a confirmation there weren't really any discussions about getting a table - more people had the same problem as far as we could tell.

However, since neither me or my wife have any prestige when it comes to certain tables etc we offered to eat at the bar. Something we actually prefer at laid back restaurants and it's always a fun time to hear the (Spanish) banter among staff and we feel it's a good way to be in and feel the buzz of the restaurant, have some privacy but still watch people work.

We chose empanadas and mussels gratinee for starters and got some bread and pebre salsa while waiting. The empanadas where good but the mussels really good. They came simply with some åarmesan cheese and parsley and felt less greasy than your usual batch. Both suggested wines were good matches.

Mains were Estefado - a really hearty boar stew - and a fish and shellfish stew. Both were quite basic, no-nonsense dishes.

We waited a little with dessert but decided to go with caramel filled horns of puff pastry and Leche Asada which is a Chilean version of crema catalana. The first was really nice but they failed (twice) with the latter so we decided to have the dulche de leche filled pancakes instead.

Then just leaned back and enjoyed the buzz as the restaurant was constantely full.

Alla in all a very good, enjoyable and fun night with some minor hickups with a really attentive and fun group of front of house staff.
