“How is this place rated number one??”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

My partner and I were looking for somewhere for dinner, looked on trip advisor and saw this place was number one. We had noticed that Esquel was gastronomically challenged in general and unfortunately this place was no different. The seating was basically in the foyer with guests wandering through. We both ordered a glass of wine and received about half a glass each. Menu was very limited. The food took forever to come out and in the mean time they gave us bread that tasted stale and was freezing cold like it had just come out of the fridge (which it probably had). When the food finally arrived, I had a steak and cheesey potatoes, the steak was well overlooked, dry and tough. The potatoes were raw in the middle. My partner had the lamb stew which was okay but his potatoes were also very undercooked. Needless to say I barely ate any of it and we escaped as soon as possible! For what the food was it was also overpriced. Do yourself a favour and go to La Luna, it might be pub food but at least it's cooked properly!

“Overcooked chicken, complete lack of attention from wait staff.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2012

We have found it hard to find good food in Esquel, and unfortunately las Bayas was no exception.

To be fair, My partner did enjoy his risotto but my chicken was so overcooked I literally had to saw it with my knife.

The waitress spent most of the time at a spare table looking at Facebook and didn't approach as at all apart from placing the food on the table then finally clearing The plates when we had to call out over the music to get attention.

It's a shame because the place looks really nice but it was a major disappointment. We've decided we'd much prefer to grab some awesome takeaway empanadas from the shop next to cheers. We recommend you do the same!
