Wonderful evening spent here. The service staff were so wonderful, the atmosphere very cosy and we could see our meat being cooked right in front of us. Well priced. Over all a lovely experience.

We spent our final night in Argentina at Como Vaca and it was a great way to end our trip. The meat was amazing and the staff were super friendly - would recommend to anyone visiting El Chalten looking for a traditional Argentinian parrilla

Ordered two parrillas and a burger. The owner took all the meat from the fridge and started cooking. The burger was one of those supermarket frozen slim burgers, just terrible. The parrillas were so so, not good, not terrible. I wouldn't recommend this place. The meat from other restaurants in town were a lot better.

Como Vaca is the best restaurant in El Chalten that we visited during our weeklong stay. Mariano tends the grill and served up some of the most flavorful grilled lamb (Cordero Patagonico) that I've ever had, for about 12 USD! I miss this place and wish I could have grilled lamb every time I finished a long day on the... More

I'm back home after 18 day travel around Argentina, but I still dream about the lamb I ate in this restaurant - melting in the mouth and so so soft! Beef was excellent as well and prices very affordable. Excellent value for money. We've been to multiple restaurants in the country, from fast food to 5-star class restaurants, but Como... More

We have gone to ComoVaca at least five times for dinner over two long trips to El Chalten and found it good value for dinner. Decent-sized steak of good quality for the price you pay (ARS130 for 300g in Feb 2016) and which are cooked as requested. Also friendly, cheerful service from the waitress. We made the mistake of trying... More

This is a nice and cosy little restaurant. You can actually watch you steak being grilled and this steak was certainly the best one I've ever had. It came with French fries and a salad and I was in heaven. Reasonable prices.

I think we were very unfortunate to be served meat which had gone off. I tried eating some but it had a horrible taste and then after smelling it I knew the knew the meat was spoiled. We informed the staff and the waitress promptly removed the plate and disposed of the meat after smelling it. However, we received absolutely... More
