Great place - king crab is king here. Small restaurant - always full. Go there for the experience and the delicious fresh king crab. Can't go wrong.

loved the relaxed atmosphere in 'La Cantina': very friendly staff, simple but cosy interior. the super fresh king crab (which they come and show you when it's still alive at your table) was cooked to perfection. this was definitely the best meal we had in Ushuaia!

Combine high prices, limited service, and not great quality food and you have the experience at La Cantina. Typical of some of these establishments, the waiter actually asked for a tip, even when the service was sub-par.

Excellent meal. Super fresh seafood cooked perfectly. Wine options here are better than most around town. The staff advised us that we'd ordered too much food and suggested we reduce our order. They were right as the portions were large. Effusive service. Wonderful.

Second restaurant we went to have dinner with the family in Ushuaia. Had two fish stews and two grilled salmon for a family of four. Food quality was good, but plate sizes were small. We had to complement with two baskets of bread rolls not to leave hungry. Price tag ran above $100 without any wines, appetizers or desserts. Service... More

Each table of diners in this small, friendly restaurant was impressed by the sight of their king crab being removed from the tank prior to cooking. In a very short time it was returned, perfectly prepared, for a delicious, if somewhat messy, meal. If there are more than 2 diners, it's worth ordering another dish to supplement the King crab....
