We arrived early at this scenic situated restaurant in El Calafate. Unfortunately they arrive 15 minutes before opening time and it is difficult to make a booking. We were seated at 7 pm which is pretty early for dinner. The waiter was excellent and very friendly guiding us in our choices as well as number of dishes ( many of the dishes can be shared). The lamb was exquisite and we discovered a new dish " grated cheese" which was excellent and highly recommended. They were very friendly towards the children. Pretty view.

The barbecued lamb was delicious. Our waiter was friendly and efficient and offered more meat at no charge. A free transfer from our hotel and back was appreciated.

Great view, great service and great food. The shuttle bus is a bit of a nuisance but definitely worth a visit while in El Calafate

Very busy restaurant on a little hill outside the main town. Steaks are good, but the lamb dishes are amazing. Servings are very generous and can easily be shared especially if you want to leave some room for dessert.

In my opinion, this is the best restaurant in El Calafate. Located at the end of the little town up on a big hill, the restaurant offers gorgeous views of the city and of Lago Argentino. The food was traditional and outstanding - I recommend the Patagonian lamb dish!! I recommend making a reservation before, as during peak months the restaurant can get flooded with travelers.

Aside from that, the staff was warm, professional, and very friendly. And while many of the restaurants in town seem relaxed and casual, this seems to be one of the only locations where you might dress up and have a bit of a more formal night.
