Description: In Fuegia we try very hard to meet the international traveller´s need for a good meal, served in a quiet, harmonious place. We offer a varied and original menu of homemade dishes with fresh ingredients. Besides the typical Argentinian filled pastas and excellent beef you will also find tacos, tabules and Indian-style chicken. We open in the morning with self-service breakfast with cereals, wholemeal bread and eggs and we prepare your packed lunch if you like. Dinnertime is between 7 and 11 pm.

“Bit disappointing”
Reviewed February 29, 2012

They only had one fish on the menu and one vegetarian dish which made the choice easy but unsatisfactory. They missed flavour but were not bad. We sat at the window which they had clearly forgotten to wash for a long time.

“Relaxed but lively atmosphere, great food, good value”
Reviewed February 13, 2012

El Chalten is a very relaxed little town, and the atmosphere at Fuegia is typical of the place. The restaurant is very popular, we couldn't get a walk-in table to first night we went, so booked for the following night. The food was excellent, in fact I had one of the best tederloin steaks I have ever eaten accompanied by Dauphinoise potatoes. A meal for 2 with starter, main course, one shared pudding and a good bottle of wine and tip was 300 pesos - an absolute bargain for the quality of the food .

“excellent food, but flies and poor ventilation a problem”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

My husband and I both had the trout, and it was outstanding. But we were battling flies throughout the dinner, and it was uncomfortably hot in the dining room. If they solved the insect and ventilation problems we would give this friendly place 5 stars.

“Good Bistro - especially for Vegetarians!”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

We enjoyed some good quality food here with excellent service. A small bistro but welcoming, clean and having a good selection of food and drink on the menu. A good find!
