This was a very nice restaurant with a beautiful setting. A beautiful dining room with lots of atmosphere. The food we had was excellent and we very much enjoyed the experience.
For the quality you get in this town, I'd say this is a great bet for your money. We ate at 3 restaurants in El Chalten. In terms of value for the money, I would say Ruca Mahuida was the best, then El Muro, and with La Tapera trailing pretty far behind. I base it on the fact we got... More
We looked up the menu of this restaurant in our nearly located Hotel Destino Sur and decided to try it for a dinner, as the choice seemed attractive. The restaurant is situated in a very nice garden and once inside, it impresses as a cozily set home dining room. We chose a trout and a lamb course, both excellent, but... More
Probably the most culinary restaurant in el chalten. Very, very nice staff, but the kitchen just tries too hard to make the food as complicated as possible with sauces and foames (cognac foame on a green salad?) that don't add to the flavour or the look of the dish. Please keep it more simple. Meat and fish are cooked well.
From beginning to end, this restaurant offered unusual combinations of flavors in every course: soup, salad, entree and dessert. Very creative and successful. Expensive but worth it.
Surprised to find classy sophisticated restaurant menu on the house. Priced accordingly. Beyond a bar of bistro level. Fresh. Love the lamb spareribs and mixed starter of smoked trout, venison, etc. Quiet ambience. Value overall.
This restaurant is tucked away in a quiet corner of El Chalten (Lionel Terray 55, one block back front he main street). Located in one of the few older buildings with loads of character it is worth a visit. The food was excellent. A great selection of local dishes and ingredients. As usual, in these parts, the servings were sizeable.... More
small and intimate but large on welcome and delicious food. the wine was excellent too, I suggest you book in advance as a group coming in could make this place full. ( I have to thank our tour guide Zoe for this recommendation)
This is an intimate restaurant that feels like a small place in Swiss Alps. They aim to provide higher end cuisine. It partially works. Try it once and judge for yourself. I was not impressed. Prices are on a higher end. I have no particular desire to return, but many may like it. Bon Appétit!
