This place is packed and expect a line up. If you're looking for a lot of food for a very reasonable price than this is the place for you. If you're a foodie, you can skip this place.

We ate here four nights in a row, mainly because it was close to the hotel, but we were not disappointed by the food. It also has a good wine list. Typically English, we ate early-ish (it opened at 8 p,m.) but there were always queues when we left.

We ordered the milanesa and gnocchi. They were the best that we had tried in Bariloche! Very efficient service (which can be hard to find in Argentina!). There was a line out the door when we arrived so allow for plenty of time. Worth the wait!

This is at best an average restaurant . We arrived on Friday early 8 pm the time they open. Ordered a stack and Milanesa. The steak was twice under cooked. The Milanesa was decent, but not amazing! The price was inexpensive, and may be one of the reasons why so many people rave about this place. Now, in all fairness.....the... More

This is a bodegon offering simple, delicious home style food. It is frequented by mostly locals. It is very cheap. However it is cash only.

I got the lemon trout, and I was expecting it to be a little crunchy. It came with about 1/4 inch of water on the plate. It was a good size portion for the price, but just didn't like the taste I was waiting for in Bariloche!

Our hostel recommended this place and we were not disappointed. We shared the huge milanesa between the two of us and still could barely finish. It was really good and cheap compared to most restaurants in town. The atmosphere was simple and enjoyable. It's a popular place, a bit outside of the city center but still packed!
