In nearly three weeks we only had steak 3 times - there was much more variety of food available than who had anticipated. So when we went out looking for one we took advice from our hotel and went for the best in El Calafate. Excellent rib eye steak, big enough for both of us with baked potato and a... More

We went back to Casimiro Bigua for dinner on our recent trip to El Calafate. We ate here three (3) nights in a row back in April 2015. We had a great first night meal here on this trip...but no skirt steak. Went back on the 2nd night, now no skirt steak and no filet. Here's the deal folks, El... More

We enjoyed the steak dinner here much more than at the famed Alberto in Bariloche. Apart from the food, which was great, the service was special here. One of us needed to buy something for our camera and rather than just suggesting where we could get it, the waiter actually walked with us to the shop - truly exceptional service!

We went in based on the 2 for 1 lamb parilla and 2 for 1 gin and tonics, and were happy we did. The food was big portions and tasted great. The drinks were very good made with local gin, they had a slight lavender flavor. The restaruant is nicely appointed, though table configuration and the tv showing local fütball... More

We went here with a group. Their cheese/tomato appetizer and a salad would have been plenty of food. But we got a huge main dish as well. Everything was well prepared and well presented, but we didn't feel the meat was top quality.

This place is OK for dinner especially if most of the recommended places are full. Satisfactory if unremarkable food and service of medium quality.

My wife and I were recommended this restaurant by our hotel - we were not to be disappointed. We decided to have the lamb dish and our waiter was most helpful advising us to share the dish and the Spanish chips. This lamb dish was quite easily the best lamb dish we have ever eaten - it was amazing and... More

We had lunch at this casual, yet well appointed place on the main St in town. The salad was very fresh, well prepared and enjoyable. The Pollo & Cordero well seasoned and cooked. The sauces that accompanied our meals added a nice flavor to the meats
