Lovely stop for lunch. Desserts were particularly delightful try lemon meringue tart. Also had a great spinach quiche and empanadas. The restaurant staff was very nice.

El bar is a great place to stop for a coffee/mate and gluten free snacks! Their Alfajores are worth to try. The place and personnel create enjoyable atmosphere.

The service, the music, the fresh squeezed juices, the waffles and the coffee were amazing!! We have been traveling through Argentina for almost a month, and this was far and beyond one of the best breakfast places we have been to! Definitely worthwhile to check out!

This cafe was a real treat and no wonder it is listed as one of the 5 best cafe's in El Calafate. My wife and I had a Milanesa's plate each, one with calabaza & the other peceto (see the blackboard menu) and then we shared/combined these dishes although they would have been great individually. The cafe also stocks a... More

We were looking for an afternoon snack and this place looked interesting and seemed to be promoting coffee. The deserts are great. I found the local special coffee with the El Calafate liqueur a little spicy and the extra chocolate in the cappuccino is unusual for the Australian pallette.

We dropped into El Bar after a big day of biking for a few drinks. It's a great spot on a fine day for a bite to eat and a beer or two. We went up to the upstairs balcony which has a nice view across the street, there's not much room up there but enough for a number of... More
