We stopped at Tia Elvira on our way to another restaurant last night and booked a table, in person, for 20:30 tonight. Arrived at 20:25 and the hostess simply told us that she had bumped our reservation and that we had to leave. I do hope she is never treated this way when she is away from home with her... More

Tia Elvira is a small restaurant but it had delicious food. The portions were big and the service was attentive.

Location- great, with nice view to the habour Drinks- expensive! Bottle of beer was 80 peso, a glass of house wine was 150 peso Food- only average. I ordered a large mussels in garlic and parsley sauce, sauce was good but the mussels were overcooked and dried out, taste wasn't fresh neither. The bad thing was my tummy felt sick... More

The breads are delicous. The seafood tastes amazing. We came here twice and ordered the same dishes: kings crab and scallops. Both of them were in garlic sauce. The service needs improvement. There was a hair in my dish and they agreed to change. However, the new dish is much smaller than the previous one. This does not make their... More

Great atmosphere with friendly staff. The centolla was good and tasty. Many wine options with reasonable price. Not the most expensive in Ushuaia.

The highlight of this restaurant is the king crab (centolla). Ordering a whole centolla to share should be a tasty, messy and fun experience. The centolla-based dish I ordered, on the other hand (since I didn’t have someone to share the whole centolla) was underwhelming. The restaurant itself has a traditional/casual vibe, but is very expensive.

When we were walking down the street some nice smells came outside from the restaurant. After that we did quick shot inside and devided to eat seafood there. Fishsoap was great after cold outside. Crep and fish are very very delicious. It is small restaurant but they do great job.

Settled on this place as my boyfriend was very keen on having some king Crab. The decor was rustic but interesting to look at and the staff were lovely. Food was great, boyfriend loved the crab and my steak was cooked perfectly. Dessert was Apple Strudel which was nice and a good wine selection. If you have spare notes to... More

Beautiful and understated we walked by not expecting much. But I was keen to try out the famous King Crab around these parts and it had a Tripadvisor sign on the window so thought it worth to give it a shot... I was pretty impressed. Though the waitress spoke limited English, she was very pleasant and sprightly. The food was... More

My girlfriends and I ate here our first night in Ushuaia. Would not recommend. The bread and seafood spread they gave us at the beginning was delicious but our cod was disgusting. It was chewy and undercooked but little improved after we asked them to cook it more. We left feeling ripped off for a pricey meal and felt even... More
