The chef is fantastic!! All the dishes taste really nice, fit my taste. We ordered salad, soup and sirloin steak. Our meal started from pate and bread. The pate was surprisingly good. Unlike the other restaurants we went in Calafate (Just butter or chive butter), I think it was made by a wonderful work of the chef using edible flowers... More

Surprisingly, very little English was spoken by any of the staff but the service was charming and the ambience good.

La Posta was recommended to us by friends. We visited for Christmas Dinner. Lovely. Staff is extremely pleasant and accommodating. The dining room is large and inviting, with a large, warm fireplace and expansive views of the hotel grounds through large windows. Comfortable seating and the dining room is properly sound proofed so that your guests can hear each other... More

Excellent, and a real gem for Calafate. Starting with a great location off the main street, the diners look out on a garden. The food was impressive and we even took photos. The Patagonian cabernet was a nice selection. The menu had a nice selection and would work for families, young and old. As the diners were on our visit.

We were so impressed by the food here that we visited twice. The food was great - we highly recommend the Patagonian lamb and grilled vegetables. Good wine list with some great Patagonian wines.

Nice restaurant, it feels like a place hidden in the mountains, which is true, friendly people, it's part of the Alamos hotel. Very good place and tasty food.

Yes, this restaurant is not cosy and it is earlier in the evening somewhat touristic but what do you expect in a touristic village like El Calefate? We enjoyed the services of a very nice attentive waitress. My wife had lamb rack which was okay, my 'cordero asero' cooked in front of you eyes by a dedicated "BBQ man" was... More

This alpine style upscale restaurant is located in a hotel but don't be fooled because the food is excellent. The dining room is formal but inviting with candlelit tables and impeccable service. The menu combines traditional Argentine cuisine with international flavors and all dishes are expertly prepared. The king crab ravioli is terrific!

We very much enjoyed our dinner at La Posta on our recent one night stay in El Calafate. We were especially grateful for its very high quality because the other wonderful restaurants that we had remembered from our previous stay in Calafate were all totally booked and unavailable. Thus, it was indeed very lucky for us that the hotel in... More

Regrettably, this was the most disappointing dining experience of our 3-week trip to Patagonia. Our experience with this restaurant differed significantly from those of other reviewers. La Posta Parrilla is an upscale restaurant in El Calafate, a major jumping- off point in Argentine Patagonia. The parrilla restaurant, which is affiliated with a hotel, specializes in meat and we had high... More
