Recommended by our guest house we went earlyish on a bank holiday Friday evening. It was quiet when we arrived but it began to get busier as time went on.

It is located in a barn type building with all sorts of memorabilian, machinery etc etc on the walls and ceilings. Very atmospheric.

A magician came to our table and did a number of card tricks and was excellent and amusing. There were also a couple of photographers doing some shots for marketing purposes - so we may feature in the future!

The steak was excellent as was the Malbec.

Definitely try this place if you are in Esquel!

Ever one I know who has been to Esquel eats here. Great entertainment for the children with a magician who comes round to the tables.

We went here on a recommendation and we were not disappointed, the food and service were both very good, the atmosphere was a bit dull to begin with but as more diners arrived it got better.

Don Chiquino is a lovely restaurant in Esquel. It has a unique atmosphere with all the vintage objects on the walls, good service, and the pasta is extremely good. A great selection of sauces, and if someone in the party does not like pasta (or can't eat it) there are some good options for them too.

A very oldish atmosphere with antic objects, the food is good depending what you eat. A magician was performed magic tricks with cards from table to table. The only negative aspect was that a very tasteful "osso buco", swimming in a delicious sauce, was not accompanied with anything like rice, pasta or potatoes! What a pity.
