We ordered things off of all parts of the menu here. Everything is good but the meats section, particularly the hare and the duck with orange were SO good. Also, they have a super reasonably priced 3 course with drink menu for lunch each day.

If you only have one meal in Punta Arenas, do it at Le Cuisine. Having eaten many a French meals in Paris, Lyon, and New York, I was very pleasantly surprised to find excellent French food with local ingredients at the end of the world....More

I followed Tripadvisor reviews and came to try out La Cuisine with my boyfriend. Let me begin by saying that we did not regret the choice! After several weeks in Chile, we have had different experiences with food, but overall it has not been impressive....More

Don't have time but 4 course French meal for lunch for the normal price of an appetizer. The outside is anassuming and inside is perfect. Soup or salad for appetizer, gourmet entree including Osso Buco and a desert with a glass of wine.

We had dinner here twice while in Punta Arenas and were very pleased with everything we tried. The restaurant seems to be a family operation and is quiet which we prefer. The staff was friendly and english menus were available.

I spent 4 days in PA and my dinner here was the best buy far. Service was excellent. The patent was well presented and tasty. The lamb shanks were delicious. I highly recommend this place. Prices are reasonable compared to the rest of PA.

We had lunch at La Cuisine. Everything was excellent. A great little bistro at the "Bottom of the World."

You could call them perhaps. Punta Arenas is small -- I am confident you could walk right in without a wait. I like your organization though!
