“Good food. Worth the wait.”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

We had a very good lunch for a reasonable price at Chiko in Ushuaia. There was a daily luncheon special of meatballs which many locals seemed to have ordered. We probably would have gotten our food more quickly if we had ordered the meatballs. Our waiter was very nice and brought us bread before our meal. We ordered crab casserole dishes that were really delicious and were definitely worth the wait. I think the way to get the most out of Chiko is to go in and order a large bottle of beer and be ready to wait for the delicious food.

“Popular and Delicious”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

We tried this restaurant as recommended by Lonely Planet and Trip Advisor. It was delicious and a very busy place. We showed with no reservation and the hostess kindly offered us a table that would be available in 30 minutes and reserved for us. We returned 30 minutes later and were seated and served. Service was fast and excellent. The food was delicious and well priced including the wine menu.

“Service is too random”
Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

This place was recommended by a tour guide as one of the best to eat crab. Well, the crab was not available which was a real disappointment. The food is average but what let's the place down is the random service. It's slow due to lack of staff and not attentive at all. Can be missed

“Disappointing”
Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

Went specifically as it was recommended for King Crab and it was not available. The Bife a lo Pobre I ended up with in its place was lack lustre. Mussels for starter were however good, so that might give hope that the crab would have been.

Service slow to exceedingly slow

“Please dont!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

I am a food lover, but I definitely think that a good service can sometimes make you forget about mediocre food.

In this case Chiko is the worst place of my visit in Ushuaia, people here live from tourism so they are not only helpful but also very kind... Chiko was the exception.

We arrived here because of a recommendation of one of our guides who told us that this was the "cantine" for locals.

They took over 20 minutes to serve me a knorr soup! Then 30 minutes more for a grilled fish with non home made smashed potatoes.

Terrible food, slow and awful service. Don't come to this place, there is so much better in Ushuaia!
