Recommended by the owner of the hostel, admittedly we were skeptical when we went in because it was empty. The place was soon filled up by locals, and a large group of seniors. The food was great, the waitress sassy yet helpful, (she was the only one taking orders), the owner friendly. I had the Albacore Frita(delicious) my son the... More

Tucked off the main town area this place is very cosy. We were surprised when we entered and how nice it was. Greeted by friendly staff and when we said we did not speak very much Spanish an English menu was provided (bingo!!!) We chose the half chicken with rice and it was well cooked. Very filling and very affordable... More

unfriendly, unmotivated service. we feel like disturbing the staff. appetiters can only be ordered if main dish is selected as well. king crab with avocado was good, salad was fresh, but salmon with fried potatoes tasted old and boring. price ok.

As other reviewers have said this restaurant is easily over looked as it is slightly off the beaten track but not far from the center. The building fits in well to its surroundings and is popular with locals. We went there earlyish (early by SA standards) and had a very good meal. Salsas, fish in two different styles and a... More

Tucked away in a residential area not far from Plaza de Armas, this restaurant could easily be overlooked. That would be a pity as it offers fresh fish and seafood at reasonable prices served in an old fashioned, low key way. The atmosphere is reminiscent of central Europe circa 1980, with polite, correct service and rather dated furnishings. The king... More

The restaurant is within short walking distance from the main square. It has simple older furnishing and decoration. The food was excellent. Staff was very attentive and helpful. Service was fast and professional. There were many dishes on the menu. For Patagonia, the restaurant was an excellent value. This was one of the best restaurants on my trip in Patagonia.... More
