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.

“Good food, slow service”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

This is a nice casual place in Ushuaia with good food and a nice ambience for youngsters.

However, the let down is the service which is a bit slow, and takes away the "fast food" nature of the place.

Overall I would still recommend this place.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

Good for a quick bite, menu not outstanding and I had the feeling that the pizza was definitely not freshly made. Service quite friendly but slow.

“The best place in Ushuaia....”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

I'm currently sitting at a table by the window with a half-eaten pizza, glass of wine, and TOM JONES playing on the stereo system! Coming to the end of the world and leaving for Antarctica tomorrow, this is the place to be. The menu is solid, if you only come here once you won't get the feel of the place. Make yourself a local and you won't be disappointed. It's also right across from a really good gelato place; Dolcissimo.

As with other reviews, the glasses of wine are large, the pizza is very good but the sirloin steak I had last night was TO DIE FOR! So tender it melted in the mouth!
The staff is great! This is my second visit in as many days but they actually remembered me! So pleased to have a "local" place so far from home.

A tip for those coming this way, take the time to be a good customer to the staff, as with the rest of Argentina "buenos dias, que tal?" goes a long way to getting service.

I was just so pleasantly surprised, I had to write something.

“Love this place”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

I had lunch here and it was great. I ordered the potato omelet. It was huge and very delicious. I also ordered a glass of wine which was also huge and delicious. Best of all was the cost.....very low as compared to many other restaurants on Ave. San Martine in Ushaia. Just the day before I had lunch in another place and found it overpriced with so-so food, small portions. So, this place is really a great find. Only down side is the slow service so just relax and don't go there if you are on a tight schedule.
