Description: Banana Cafe Bar is one of the first cafes in Uhsuaia with over 22 years serving islanders and tourists from all over the world. We have a rather typical menu for an Argentinian Cafe: coffees, local drafted beer, drinks, beef tenderloin sandwichs, breaded beef, pure breadcrum toasted sandwiches,Spanish Tortillas. What makes banana stand out is not the menu but the quality and flavor of the food, the size and our caring service. talking about the music, we only listen to Argentinian music, all styles: folk, pop, rock, reggae. We serve from 7 AM till 1 Am, and kitchen is open from 10 AM till 00:30 AM and till 1:30 on weekends.

“decent quick bite”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

stopped in for lunch one afternoon. prompt, friendly service, but the menu and offerings are right down the middle of the road. standard sandwich, salad, meat and drink offerings. the free wifi was nice, but the food unmemorable. there are better options for foodies, but this place will certainly do for a decent value.

The best sandwiches in town. Nice table service (considering the average on Argentina). Has a stable and free wi-fi. Recomended.

“Good service with friendly, helpful staff...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

This is a cozy little place with a good menu. We had the pizza which was excellent. Service was instant and good. Doesn't look like much from the street (why the name 'Banana'?) but it's worth a stop for lunch.

“Ordinary”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

Service good, food was good, had "rib" which was strips of grilled meat. Not much seasoning. Bread was dull, Beer was great. Burgers were giant and I coveted one when I saw at another table. Small and a bit crowded but not obnoxiously so.

“Tasty food, reasonable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

After some expensive and disappointing alternatives, I found the Banana Bar/Cafe. It is not fancy, but it is a friendly local restaurant. I ate here several times over a few weeks by myself and with friends. The food tasted very good each time. Every meal was reasonably priced. I highly recommend you check it out when staying in Ushuaia.
