La Cascada gets its name from a small waterfall in the delightful grounds, which slope down - in some places quite steeply - to the shore of lake Nahuel Huapi. A converted private home, it has excellent public areas, which have the best view over the lake. Our standard room was quite adequate, and by peering through the trees we could just see the mountains on the far side of the lake. We understand though that even the suites don't have a great view. To get the best views, enjoy the public rooms and the sunny terraces.
Breakfast was basic and, unusually, served to order rather than the more widely encountered buffet: language issues made for quite an interesting experience.
We discovered that the hotel had discontinued its restaurant before we arrived, but we were referred by the really friendly staff to two places just across the main road. One is a snack bar, which was fine for the national sandwich of ham and cheese but not much more. The other is a proper restaurant providing the national protein overload. Having had unmanageably huge steaks elsewhere in Argentina we saw with delight that "mini steaks" were on the menu. They were however so large (but delicious) that we wondered how massive the non-mini steaks might be.
We like walking, but the hotel is a long way out of Bariloche, and cabs are needed if you don't have your own wheels. That adds somewhat to the cost of going to eat in town, but we were only there for two nights, and it wasn't a problem. Might be for a longer stay though.
