Awesome lamb parilla, soft and tasty meat unequaled by any european meat.

Patagonian trout also top notch.

Friendly and good service, talented asador!

Ask for a parrila, a sort of barbecues very good. If you like taste a red wine. The staff is very busy.

Some of the best lamb and beef we had in our three weeks in Argentina and Chile. Terrific salad too. More comfortable dining than some other highly rated restaurants in El Chalten -- well ventilated, no flies. We went three times during our visit in Jan 2012. First rate!

Nice restaurant, although there is nothing very special about the interior and it is definitely lacking in atmosphere. However the food was very good. We had the vegetable soup and empanadas to start and both had the lamb as main. The lamb is very tender and very well cooked. Make sure you ask for the chimichurri to go with the meat it is excellent. Fries were also good.

The service was friendly but it was very slow!
I also ordered a salad that had tomato and basil but they didn't tell me they didn't have any basil and they simply replaced it with black olives cut up all over it.. It wasn't a good replacement and I sent it back to the kitchen and cancelled it which was fine with the restaurant. The staff were very nice!!
Food was pretty mediocre, not good milanesa or pasta...
It's a shame because the staff were great and the lamb looked great in the window, nice to escape the cold outside.
