Ate with two kids and grandma, good food for everyone. Good milanesas, huge glasses of wine, nice atmosphere. Nothing spectacular but a very good choice with family.

I didn't find Puerto Madryn to be the great for food overall. This place was OK but nothing special. My husband had steak with roquefort which tasted good.I ordered prawns which were too cooked for my liking and the green salad was a bit tired. I think this is the kind of restaurant where its best to order a huge... More

They have seafood and Argentina beef and lamb. We had the seafood and it was delicious. The pear dessert was the best ! By the sea downtown. Would love to come here again on the next trip .

We were greeted by the waiter and made to feel at home from the moment we walked in. It is a big room with a lot of tables, but the ambience is nice. We ordered Latitude 33 Chardonnay for around $200 at the recommendation of our waiter. It was a good wine. We got a great salad, a nice pizza... More

We stopped in for dinner. Staff are excellent, but the food is just so-so. Their whole gluten-free menu was unavailable when we went, so all I could get was a chicken leg. Not super impressed since we chose the place based on its relatively decent-looking gluten free options. There are better options in Puerto Madryn, though in fairness they are... More

Went to both restaurants for seafood, fish meal.both ok, similar price. Differences were, cantina very busy noisy, fast service,friendly, and English spoken. More to look at on walls. Chona, more professional, attention to little details, friendly, not so full, but similar meals came with more trimmings,larger portions, probably tastier, a bit on salty side for my taste buds, but a...

Loved the fish but the waiter never came back once to see if I needed anything during the whole meal. The restaurant is beautiful & the meal was perfect.

Excellent service, fast and efficient, considering the poor standards in the city, especially in Trelew. Elaborate and a wide variety of entres. Pretty decent wine selection. Professional waiters, just about the only restayrant worth decentservice. The rest is quite rude, unsophisticated and blunt. They lack training in customer service. The only restaurant in town where you can eat up until... More

Went to this restaurant. right on the waterfront, twice for dinner in two days ... and I must say ... GREAT value for money. It must be one of the most popular placed down-town. When I arrived the first night at 7.30 PM the place was almost empty ... an hour later it started to get 'packed'! Today, I arrived... More
