“Great steak”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Place to go in El Calafate if you like steak. The restaurant came highly recommended by a couple of people I know.

“Over-rated!!”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

La Tabilta is overrated - the food was ok but the service was very slow. One of my son's ordered fish which was served with a fly on top - not appetitzing! Also, my wife and I ordered a selection of grilled meats for 2 people which was overcooked.

“Patagonian lamb”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

We went to La Tablita with a hint of trepidation, and not just because everybody in town appears to want to get you a table there. Why would any decent joint need such extensive machinery to garner business?

Yet when we got there we were greeted warmly and given a table within 15 minutes, despite showing up without a reservation in high season.

The feel is touristy and a bit industrial, but the service is good: polite and attentive. The Patagonian lamb I found excellent- crisp on the outside, yet soft and succulent on the inside. The house red (by the glass) was an excellent Malbec blend, which apparently only sells at the restaurant. Shame. The rest of the menu was sadly, forgettable.

“Not impressed”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

The service was extremely efficient, but the decor, location and - above all - the patagonian lamb, were not up to my expectations. The wine list is also a tad incomplete and they had just run out of the wine I wanted.

“Patagonian BBQ experience”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

Our first Parilla experience and yeah I'd say for a first time visitor to Patagonia it lives up to expectations - big fire where the lamb is spread over and barbecued, warm atmosphere, big portions and good local wines. Come here for meat and meat only (lamb in particular, not steak). Also try a local Patagonian Malbec.
