This small restaurant is has a sister location. My wife and our friends enjoyed our dishes and the service. The menu is varied with pizzas, pastas and some meat dishes available. I had a pasta dish (spaghetti with meat sauce) and my wife had a nice salad. We also shared some wine and enjoyed this break from steak.

After the big ice hike a steak was in order and the Beef de Chorizo and creamy potatoes were fantastic!

The piazzas were very Latin in style, lots of cheese! Friendly attentive staff and a good atmosphere within the restaurant. God sized portions to fill you up.

I had Cordero here(typical food in El Calafate) and it was well cooked with proper sauce and side dishes. It was not that expensive. Service was satisfactory as well.

My wife and I spent one night in El Califate while touring Patagonia and Cape Horn. Most restaurants did not open until after 7 pm so when we were looking for something around 6 the choices were more limited. We stumbled on this place on the main street. We decided to try their ravioli dish and we were very happy... More

Simple fare, burgers and fries, pizzas and pasta and variations. Formica table type joint with a kids play area and used by many locals as it offers good value. The burgers are really nice, homemade and this would add a premium in London but not here. Good no frills dining, two burgers with fries, a medium beer and coke for... More

We ate here 3 nights out of 4, great service and amazing food. Pasta is homemade and the variety in the menu is phenomenal. Prices are very reasonable for both food and drinks. Try the meat lasagna, an amazing combo I've never seen before.

At Lechuza they dare to offer pizzas that are nowhere near the quality of frozen pizza for ten times the price. We went... More
