“Good, but not up to expectations”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

My wife had a 5 star meal here, I had a 3 star meal. We came here on recommendations from two different people as the "best parilla" in town - it didn't overwhelm me, however. My wife's cordero was quite excellent, and generously proportioned. My steak, ordered medium rare, was overcooked and far less compelling. One cool feature: it has a rock climbing wall on the outside of the building.

“A Fabulous Meal After a Sixteen-Mile Hike!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

We were famished after our hike to Laguna De Los Tres, one of the most spectacular views on the planet. We didn't even stop at our hotel, but headed directly for El Muro, which we heard had excellent food. The roasted lamb with onion marmalade was delicious as was the filet in peppercorn sauce (we went for the high-protein meat)! The side order of roasted vegetables was probably the best I have had anywhere anytime. We really felt like we deserved a special treat after such a long hike, and this certainly filled the bill!

“Favorite dinner in Chalten”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

We loved this place. We came straight off the 13 mile hike to Laguna de Los Tres and hobbled our way in here. We were rewarded with an excellent meal of steak and lamb, delicious salads and fresh veggies. The wine and beer selection was excellent and the servers were friendly. The prices were beyond reasonable, dare I say cheap. Totally excellent!
