This restaurant is a very nice one in Ushuaia. The service is very classy and the atmosphere is quiet. You get very nice views overlooking the bay. They offer a lot of local seafood specialties such as octopus and king crab. The food was good but a bit on the buttery and heavy side. They also charged a cover fee.

I found this place a bit stuffy and expensive for the area. You can get really nice seafood in town that is more casual and offers great food also. The client base here was on the elderly side, table clothes, dimly lit, etc.

4 people dinner with wine was $916 Argentine pesos or $228 USD which is NOT cheap. If I paid for this in the DC area I would look elsewhere.

The best scallop ceviche I have ever had. The staff are professional and attentive without being intrusive. The setting is wonderful. This is the third time I have been here in three separate visits and I would never come to Ushuaia without eating here at least once. One of my favorite restaurants worldwide.

Dined at this restaurant three times while in Ushuaia, so tried almost every seafood option on the menu. All the food was of a great quality, fresh produce, perfectly cooked and well presented.
Would recommend everything but if pushed to limit the options:
Merluzza Negra a la manteca negra (local white fish, cooked in butter with capers)
King Crab and Spinach Chowder
King Crab crepes with saffron sauce

Without a doubt the best restaurant in Ushuaia, though its a bit of a walk uphill. The price matches the quality!

The food was outstanding both in taste and presentation - Entree: King Crab Crepes, Main: Patagonian Sea Bass in Paper

The service was great and attentive - our water glasses were never empty, bread entrees were refilled, and jackets looked after on entry/exit.

The view, if you get a window table, overlooks downtown Ushuaia, the domestic airport runway, and of course the Beagle Channel. Depending on the time, you can see cruise ships depart and head out to the Beagle Channel.

Superb family run restaurant, with great views of the bay and excellent food. Hard to get in, so try and make a reservation. The king crab was spectacular.
