It's located a short walk up the hill from Los Acebos Hotel and well worth the trip. A large, airy room with well-spaced tables and a large central salt-water aquarium gives it a relaxing atmosphere. The view of Ushuaia and the harbor is outstanding, so ask for a table along the large windows. The menu leans toward seafood and everyone in our large group of 16 people was impressed by the quality of the food and the careful preparation. King crab is a specialty so seriously consider it if it's offered. The French owner/chef for whom the restaurant is named even walked around the floor to be sure everyone was enjoying themselves. Take a flashlight if you walk because the winding road to get there and back has no streetlights.

Our party of six spent a memorable evening (at) "Chez Manu". The food matched the view over Ushuaia and the Beagle canal and the restaurant is within a 10 to 15 minutes walk from Los Acebos and Las Hayas Resort Hotels. Although a bit pricier than some restaurants in town it might be even cheaper for a couple to eat here by saving the cab fare back from town to these hotels in the evening.

I visited this restaurant with some friends last winter (July in the Southern hemisphere), a snowy night without a hint of wind. We had a car so we drove all the way up there, arriving around 9,30 pm for a lovely dinner. Service was extremely professional, the restaurant was packed but there is plenty of room between tables so we felt quite comfortable.
We ate fish and seafood of course, but to be honest we drank much more than we ate!!! Anyhow, the whole experience was enjoyable and I suppose the view must be breathtaking, as it was snowing for hours and could not see anything. Watch out in the way back if you drive as icy roads are tricky.

For sure this is one of the top restaurant of our whole patagonian trip!
You have to take a taxi to reach it, but the place will worth the efforts! The view is simply breathless and in the summer time you'll enjoy the sun light till about 10 pm.
The food is inspired by french cuisine (as the chef Manu is): very sophisticated, colored and keen to details. The service is excellent and the atmosphere very warm.
We were there the first time (through tripadvisor tips) when we arrived in Ushuaia and decided to book a table for the Christmas eve. Best choice ever.
You shouldn't miss it!
