“Best Restaurant We Went to in Ushuaia”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

There's just something about the food in Ushuaia. We enjoy dining out and have eaten at some of the best restaurants in the world. The three days we spent in Ushuaia, quite honestly, offered up some of the best food we've had ever. And Kalma is easily at the top of our list.

The service here is impeccable. You're first seated by a waitstaff. Then the chef personally comes up to your table to introduce the highlights and offer advice on wine pairing. For appetizers, we had the king crab because that's what all the reviews online recommended. We weren't disappointed. Then for mains we had the hake, which was fresh and well-cooked, and the king crab ravioli, which features generous chunks of crab meat. Finally for dessert, we opted for the house special, a unique dessert (the chef's own invention) comprising cookie crumbs and ice cream drizzled in extra virgin olive oil.

The personable service, coupled with the amazing food, is a winning combination for Kalma. Sure, prices weren't cheap but for the quality you get, I'll say Kalma is very reasonably priced. Book ahead.

“Really great food”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

This is a great place to eat. The owner comes over to your table and describes in detail the great dishes he has to offer. You feel that you are in the presence of someone who views food as an art, not just something to eat.

“one of the best ushuaia restaurants”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

This is one of the best Ushuaia restaurant!
Very small restaurant (better to book before) in a side street of the town. You'll be adviced directly by Jorge, the chef/owner. He's very nice and passionate about his kitchen. You cannot be disappointed. The menù is based on daily ingredients, so be prepared to follow Jorge suggestion. It's worth!

“Perfecto”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

I had an amazing meal there three years ago, and now that I am back in Ushuaia I went back for the first dinner I have here.
It is even better then I remembered, and in my opinion the only place for dinner in Ushuaia
