We've been in the Kau Kaleshen on the last day of our El calafate stay and would like to highly recommend that restaurant. We've been to San Pedro resto and la Cocina restaurant before but unfortunately the food there was just ok. However at Kau Kaleshen everything from the starter to the desert was just fantastic. We chose a salad... More

We ate at Kau Kaleshen a week ago and loved it here. The atmosphere in the little place is great, the staff very friendly and the food great. I had a vegetarian pasta dish, tried artisanal beer and eyed the desserts on the other tables, which looked fantastic. Two of us tried the cheese fondue, which was OK but if... More

The Argentinian way of service is very slow but the waitress here was great! Food was delicious! Had lots of gluten free options clearly labeled on the menu including staters, mains, and desserts. My husbands favorite place in Argentina!

The meal was nicely presented, but fatty and salty. Price was expensive. When we walked in based on its TripAdvisor rating, nobody greeted us. We had to approach a lady sitting on a chair. She just sat on the chair, couldn't be bothered talking to us. Eventually another waitress came up, and was friendly enough. Still, we felt the whole... More

Tucked away on a parallel side street to the main drag was this gem of a restaurant. Very cozy and small, the food is sensational and the service was lovely. Of all things, my wife had chicken pot pie which she reported to be the best she ever had- baked in a thick, sweet crust and loaded with chicken and... More

My boyfriend and I walked in about 30 minutes before closing time, which can be annoying for some restaurants, but we were treated with the utmost respect. Our menus arrived promptly and we ordered craft beers and the fondue dish to share that included a variety of vegetables and german sausage. The meal arrived within 12 minutes of ordering it,...

The restaurant is in a cute little house. We had a main course with salmon. It was nice to have a meal which wasn't completely 'standard'. It looked wonderfull, with flowers to garnish the meal. The taste was also very good. The staff was very friendly and quick.
