A good restaurant in Ushuaia. Good food and service, right prices. Lots of good beer and wines. Close to our hotel.

I ate there many times. I loved the "mate" set with fried bread, jam and cheese (and mate, of course, with 2 servings of yerba so you can drink for a long while!). All the food I tried was delicious. The cheese and/or ham platters are big and tasty, although I have to admit that Ramos Generales has way better cheese (if they still have it, Argentina is cracking down on imports). Many beers, not all of them are always available (again, problems with imported goods).
They close earlier than a normal pub, so don't expect to stay there until 2 or 3 am.
It's a very nice spot to eat and have a good chat with friends or lovers :)

They have a good menu, but ask them what they actually do have... I had chosen two different options, and they didn't have any. However the food is good and so is the service.

Up the hill a bit from the main drag, Placeres Patagonicos is housed in a colorful but plain styled building. It's basically a Pub, with lots of hand-carved wood furnishings that are quite rustic-looking but nice. The interior is cavernous but somehow still felt cozy.

We went for lunch, and had two very underwhelming sandwiches - my steak sandwich I could barely eat because it was cooked like rubber. Served dry with minimal preparation - kind of like what you'd make for yourself for a midnight snack except dry. The soup was ok, but very oversalty. Mixed reviews on the french fries - steak fries that were either undercooked and mealy or overcooked and crunchy depending on the fry. The wine pours by the glass were huge.

For these two extremely simple sandwiches that couldn't have taken more than 5 minutes to make, we waited about 1.5 hours to get our food - there were only about five tables filled in the place too. All in all, a 2 hour dry, overcooked, undelicious sandwich stop. Not impressed. Maybe it's better for dinner.

Looking for another place, we settled on trying Placeres. What great luck. We shared the plate of local cheeses for an appetizer - great cheeses with a mini-loaf of bread right out of the oven. Followed by lamb goulash with spaetzle and crab meat sorrentinos. All delicious. The restaurant is up the hill, so less cruise ship oriented and has a more local feel. So good that my son, who stayed in town an extra day, went back for lunch rather than try another place.
