It's a bit of a walk from downtown, especially when you're exhausted from hiking, but I'm so glad we came here. It's a fun, eclectic atmosphere with three levels of dining; we were seated upstairs. It doesn't feel crowded even though the tables are close together. The waitress brought out this amazing small loaf of warm bread with spreadable cheese,... More

This restaurant was very homey and had a great menu. I loved the atmosphere and they had a good food menu to choose from. Would definitely recommend when in El Calafate!

Busy restaurant with a great relaxed feel. Colourful walls and informal dining. Great food ( we had lamb stew with pastry crust) and empanadas. Menu is different and features varied vegetarian friendly food

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Pura Vida. The waiter spoke English and was super helpful, in clarifying dishes on the menu, etc. The food was great. (The people seated next to us, also really enjoyed their dishes, as well.) FYI: the restaurant won't provide tap water to drink, only bottled water, for an additional charge (irritating, admittedly). The receipt... More

We ate at this restaurant on a visit to Calafate and almost went back the next night because it was so good. Uniquely prepared meals. Very good service. Fun place.

The food was amazing! Huge servings. If not too hungry maybe share a main. I had the lamb pie and it was delicious! Freshly baked bread came out before the meal. So tasty! The staff were dry friendly and accomodating. Good for families too. The slanted roof, wooden furniture and decorations give the place a great feel. Definitely recommend for... More

If you want a change from parilla type food, try Pura Vida. The layout of the restaurant is quite different and the overall atmosphere is convivial and warm. We recommend the home cooked lamb pie which is totally genuine and can definitely be shared by two people.Thank you to our waitress who alerted us about the size and recommended one... More

The restaurant is very cute and cozy. The home made bread they bring as appetizer is amazing, warm soft and crunchy. Everything is rich and heavy food but very tasty. Service is excellent as well, all super friendly.
