“Good atmosphere but not the place for King Crab”
Reviewed January 27, 2014 via mobile

We were lucky to get the last table in this very busy and popular restaurant. As we sat there queues built up outside which is a testament to its reputation. Service was brisk and friendly and the menu was extensive. Everything was reasonably priced.

Having just arrived in Ushuaia we were keen to try the King Crab which was on the menu. However, what we got was disappointing and although there was a good portion it was bland and lacked real crab flavour. We started with empanadas which were very tasty and the local beer was good.

We will try elsewhere for the crab and wish we'd had one of the other dishes on the menu which were clearly well received by our fellow diners.

It's a small restaurant but nicely decorated inside and clearly worth a visit if you don't seek the king crab.

“Fueguino Taste!”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Very good restaurant, often full in the evening during high season (we where there between christmas and new yars eve), but it is the worth to wait a little bit to get a sit there!
Really friendly stuff and good location.

“Great Atmosphere, Great Food”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

We ate here for dinner in mind December, the staff was great, if they didnt speak English, they were very patient as I tried my poor Spanish. The decor is very nice, rustic, with fur covered seats, sky lights to showcase the long nights at that time of year, and coat hooks at all the tables for you to hang your gear.

We got a sampler meal, and for a family of 4, with both kids grown and out of college so more 4 adults, it was almost to much with the bread, sea food, beef, and fried treats. The wine list was great, and our waiter was very friendly and gave good recommendations.

A must visit if you are in town, keep in mind they do not open until late, as most here eat a very late dinner, so thinking closer to 8pm for a table right around opening..

“Great place for local food”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

We went to Bodegon Fueguino based on reviews we read on TripAdvisor - and the reviews were correct, this place is great!

The restaurant is very relaxed (with local art, wooden tables and sheep skin covering the stools). The food is fantastic - some of the best empanadas, beef and lamb we had on our trip! The portions are large, the prices aren't bad, and the wine is good too. It's the perfect place for a low-key, delicious meal.

Apparently, word has gotten out how great this place is - it fills up fast! Both nights we arrived a few minutes after they opened at 8, and both nights all of the tables were booked by 8:30! If you arrive and the tables are full - its definitely worth the wait!
