La Fonda del Tio was recommended to us by a local when we asked for an "authentic" Bariloche eating experience and it definitely did not disappoint! On our way into the restaurant, two older Argentinian men even gave us handshakes and congratulations for finding the best restaurant in town! We happily followed their suggestion of the chicken milanesa, bife de chorizo, and their homemade flan with dulce de leche. The service was fast, the food delicious (and cheap!), and the atmosphere like a big Sunday night family dinner with local families filling the rooms. A great break from the expensive touristy restaurants you might experience elsewhere.

We asked the staff at our hotel for a good restaurant and this was agreed by all. The milanesa was the choice of food. It's big enough that 2 people can easily share it. The menu isn't varied but most come for the milanesa, anyway. You don't have to wait too long for it either.

The waiters were very nice and tentative to our needs. They even make good recommendations based on what you want.

In terms of price, we found it to be almost the same price of food in Buenos Aires.

The atmosphere is very comfortable and welcoming, despite the tables being extremely close to each other.

This is a small restaurant where you can enjoy the "house-made" tasting of local specialties. Great atmosphere for sharing dinner.

Amazing Milanesas - you do actually have to share one between two. We had the chicken one which was so tasty but a bit smaller than the meat ones (probably thicker though). Really economic prices and good service - really recommended

It's you with 40 friends and this place have only 35 places? No worries, the amazing waiters will sort it out!
Almost every review I've read say the truth. Family-owned, friendly atmosphere, great waiters, outstanding quality-value relationship, huge -huuuuge- dishes, simple but hearty food, recommended by every taxi driver in the city... Don't miss it.
