“Great lamb, more basic surroundings”
Reviewed 30 November 2012

The service was really quick when there were about 10 tables full. The tables and cloths were pretty basic, but ok. Menu had some funny English translations, where they translated "beef" as "empty". The lamb was tremendous and quite a lot of it.

“Run away”
Reviewed 15 November 2012

The beef is not fresh, I know beef very well and I can guarantee that what they served to me was frozen before. The bread is a not good option and you pay what it not very common in Argentina. The staff is not enough to delivery the dishes. In summary, run away. It is definetly a good option to eat a good local beef.

“I would fly to El Calafate again just for this!”
Reviewed 31 October 2012

The food was amazing! The staff was very helpful and passionate about their food. We were served by the owner and he was a character. You can see how proud he is with their menu and the quality that they deliver. And in all fairness, he was right! I was the happiest man there with my slab of bbq lamb and my wife had the best salad ever during our trip.

In addition, i was $10 pesos short in paying the bill. I was more than happy to break a $100 note to pay and include a tip but the owner decline. He was happy with the short change which is unheard of in Argentina!

If i won $1m lottery, i know where i will charter my flight to!

“All you can eat”
Reviewed 4 September 2012

In this restaurant, just next to the Casino, you can eat all you can at fixed price, with no drinks included.
There's a good salad-buffet in the middle of the room and you can see the carnicero, preparing the barbecue and smell the meat on it...They will stop serving meat when you say so.
