We enjoyed a fantastic experience at Pirque. The food was absolutely delicious. We had smoked trout and salad to start, trout and goulash as mains and fresh fruit and apple strudel for dessert. All were perfectly cooked and very fresh. The trout was beautifully smoked by the restaurant. The owner was warm and friendly and really made our experience special.... More

Food was really good, fantastic view, really nice owners, and all that for an average price. Really recommended if you're traveling on this section of Ruta 40.

We went to Pirque twice while visiting El Bolson, and loved the food, the atmosphere and the stunning view. Rave reviews for a few of the trout dishes and the pork and the spinach crepes for dinner; the crepe with mixed berry sauce for dessert was phenomenal, and the chocolate mousse-like dessert was sublime. The owners are warm and generous.... More

We visited Pirque at the recommendation of our B&B hosts and were not disappointed! The restaurant is set up on a hill overlooking the valley in a the first floor of a beautiful home. We were the only patrons in the restaurants and felt like we had a private chef. They had an extensive selection of local wines to choose... More

Excellent place! I had dinner one evening with my family, and we were the only guests. El Hoyo is not packed with tourists in generalL Let alone in mid July, due to the harsh weather. So I guess that was to be expected. The place is family-run, and the owner (cook and waitress) was a very friendly lady. She payed... More

Pirque's new facility provides the fortunate visitor an overwhelming view of the surrounding mountains while browsing the palate-tempting dishes on the menu. Gustavo's and Gabriela's warm welcome is only matched by the superlative meals prepared in Pirque under the demanding supervision of Gabriela. Once your dish is served, your senses will become alive as ever! Your sight will hesitate between... More

My husband and I were steered to Pirque by the host of our B&B. It was such a delicious and charming experience that we returned 2 more evenings during our stay in the El Bolson area. Being there in 2013 found us dining at their new restaurant, due to a forest fire in which they lost their original restaurant and... More

We are spoiled when it comes to food and service. Argentina, and especially Patagonia, is great for parillas and empenadas, but after 4 weeks we thought it is hard to find fine cuisine, yet made with simple ingredients as you can find in France and Italy. At Pirque, we found (at least so far) the best and finest cuisine in... More

This lovely small restaurant is in the country just a few minutes south of El Bolson. We had called ahead and Gaby had agreed to cook us dinner earlier than usual - when we left it was close to 10 and the other diners she was expecting hadn't yet arrived! While she cooked, she suggested we walk in her lovely... More
