OK this is a nice looking restaurant with a nice looking menu. Reading the menu carefully you will notice the surcharge for table service is a mandatory extra, which seems normal in Argentina but immediately rankles my Australian outlook. I had in mind to try the signature dish centolla, or king crab, which is commonly advertised for about 80000 pesos... More

This restaurant was small but busy. the choice of food was great - although the speciality was predominantly sea food. The service was great and the waitress attentive. I would recommend it - it is opposite the bay

The place is renowned for its fish, especially spider crab and black hake. We had some crab with our starter and a sort of hake fish pie for our main. Both were delicious,... More

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

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.
