Perfect recommendation from our hotel. We stayed 4 days in Calafate and this was the best place that we ate ! Vegeterian lasagna and ñoquis were great ! The plates are huge so do not exaggerate on the starters. They also bring a just-out-of-oven homemade bread first ! It is impossible to say no to this. Really good ! Place... More

Really enjoyed our meal here - the place was packed but we were quickly shown to a table (we had sensibly reserved a table beforehand). Friendly staff and quick service. The food was excellent and a great price too. Fully recommended. Loved the quirky layout too.

We ate here about a week ago. Nice atmosphere, very good restaurant for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. Good and fast service. Not expensive. You should definitely go here.

Our guide recommended this restaurant, though we werent sure from the outside, the smells which met when we passed meant that we couldnt resist a try! We wished we had tried it before, the atmosphere was 'relaxed', the owners couldnt do enough for you.... the food was delicious and home cooked, and the decor was quirky but comfortable.. We;ve told... More

My wife and I walked all the way from the other side of town to give this place a go, and overall had a good experience. We ordered one Veggie Lasagne (250.00 pesos - one of the best I've had!), one lentil stew (210.00), and a table service of 50.00 pesos...... You do get a lovely, warm, homemade bread though....

This attractive restaurant has a varied selection of typical Argentine food. I had a stew and was impressed with the size of the dish and the quality of the food. We had a couple of glasses of a nice Argentine Malbec with our meal to accompany the food. My wife had a fish dish (salmon) and enjoyed it as well.

Food at Pura Vida is a nice change to the usual Parilla-Restaurants. We had a brown-rice wok which was lovely. As a starter they serve you quite a big homemade bread The place is very popular, go early or make a reservation.

We stumbled into here because we had seen it from our bus returning from a day trip, because it looked funky and because it was over the road from the place we were staying... but I have to say it's one of the best 'convenient stumbles' ever! It was so go we stumbled in again the 2nd night. The service... More
