This restaurant was just two blocks away from our hotel Destino Sur, so we had one lunch and two dinners in it. In the evening it is convenient to arrive early, after 7.30 p.m. it was always full and people had to wait for a free table. Every time we got immediately our bread basket and menu, once we chose our meal, the beverages also arrived quickly. If the plates are ready made, they come very soon, if you choose something from the grill or oven, you might wait for about 25 minutes. A very good deal is the half portion of steak (medio bife de chorizo) at about 6 dollars, it is so big that it should satisfy a normal appetite, specially when ordered with the excellent baked potatoes. Also the grilled lamb and fresh salad provedto be very good. We had a fine Portillo malbec wine, at less than 10 dollars the bottle. In order to fill the restaurant, tables are put too close, but the serving girls are very skillful in squeezing through the narrow passways and the closeness makes also the general atmosphere very friendly, with chats all around in several languages. The restaurant accepts Visa and MC credit cards,.

Get it. You won't be disappointed. We had the best beef and lamb in our lives here (tender, juicy, flavorful).

Read the other reviews and had to do it, had the parilla which was melt in the mouth - we cleaned it up super quick and the roasted veggies - Heaven!! Our waitress was super friendly and handled herself well in a full restaurant, answered our questions and coped with our atrocious spanish - all whilst smiling and matching wine. Best shared grill i've had and 2nd best steak in an Argentine restaurant.

The best restaurant I went to in Patagonia. The lamb is delicious, as are the side dishes (i don't know what they did to the pumpkin mash to make it so good!)

Located in a charming  building on the edge of town, warm and cost, and great music. The perfect experience after a day of hiking in the cold.

We were really disappointed with our meal in this restaurant after being recommended to come here. The two of us shared the Patagonian mixed barbecue grill. The meat was tough, grisly and obviously the worst cuts of the animal. We had much better meat elsewhere in el chalten and didn't pay 20 dollars for it. We mentioned to our waiter at the end that we were disappointed, and got absolutely no reaction.
