Just a quick review to say that we had absolutely terrific food at Rick's in El Calafate. Barbecue lamb is absolutely outstanding, juicy, the best I've had in year. French fried were exactly like those my mom does. Delicious. Service was perfect, fast. This restaurant is a no brainer

We were told we would eventually get fed up with meat, but three weeks in and we were still going strong !! Glad we were as we went to Rick's and had two of the best steaks we had in the whole of our trip. Service was good, friendly and efficient. We don't usually go to the same place twice but did this time and it was just as good. And, of course, with the blue dollar excellent value

The steaks here are really pretty good, but that is the only thing good that I have to say. Bad things are:

Service is especially slow.

Mashed potatoes were like water.

Chocolate Mouse was horrible.

I would recommend skipping this place. I am never never going back.

Argentinians produce and eat a lot of meat, especially beef and in El Calafate Rick's is the place to have it and lots of it. There are other dishes on the menu as well but barbecued or grilled meat is their specialty. Do not think that Argentinian restaurants are cheap.

We were a little dubious of this place, since it's called Rick's and it seemed very touristy, but so is the rest of El Calafate, so we gave it a shot. The patagonian lamb was actually very tasty! It was our first taste of patagonian lamb and ended up having better later in the trip, but Rick's was still really good. It's the real deal. The only downside is the place is the lighting in the restaurant is oddly fluorescent, so the atmosphere isn't very mellow. But once the food came, I forgot all about that.
