Came for dinner to this place since it was recommended. The place is a alternative bat with good music and great graffiti art on the walls. A fortunately the food was awful and the waiter did not care a bit about. We ordered some simple grilled chicken (totally dry) and some vacio ( typical beef dish in Argentina). The meat... More

We liked the alternative look of the restaurant. The prices are average. And so we went in. At the end it was a big mistake. The food was terrible and the rest also.

I dined on two consecutive evenings at Cambalache, just across the road from the Kosten Aike hotel. Their pizzas were enormous - one was enough for 3 people.

Fantastic setting with plenty of vibe. The staff were very attentive and always on hand. Central position which was ideal. People of all ages were making this establishment the place to meet and socialise.

We are here just because it was cheap and recommended by our hostel. The food cheapish but that also showed in the food. Everyone's steal was massively over cooked which obviously isn't a great start.

We came here for lunch and were very pleased. The food was plentiful and good in this simple neighborhood restaurant. The waitress was friendly and we enjoyed ourselves. The service, however, was on the slow side.

We walked by this restaurant today and saw the patio was full. What an awesome place to have empanadas and a cold beer. You will find this restaurant beside El Calafate hostel. Great lunch spot. Pizzas looked amazing.
