Had dinner here during our recent visit to Ushuaia. This is a seafood restaurant offering a scenic view of the harbour. It's very interesting to see the old airport runway facing directly at the restaurant! It must be interesting in the old days to see aeroplanes taking off at you. The restaurant is a few blocks up the hill on... More

We enjoyed excellent food throughout our trip to Argentina, but this was to be a special treat. And it so nearly was. Sometimes the things that you have the highest hopes for, don't quite live up to expectations. For me, Kaupe fell into this category, and yet they didn't do anything wrong. We had a table overlooking the Beagle Channel.... More

A small restaurant with great views in the heart of Ushuaia. We went early around 8.30pm and one other table occupied. By the time we left the place was full. Service was excellent, almost to being overserviced due to the time we went. They were very attentive. The menu is small but there is a good variety. On the night... More

Went to Kaupe on the recommendation of a friend and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Good selection of wines and the food was great. We went on the eve of a three-week Antarctic cruise and it was the perfect send-off dinner. Would definitely recommend Kaupe.

After several disappointing meals, Kaupe was so refreshingly delicious. Their seafood is so fresh and executed very well. It will forever be memorable... The entree comes with the king crab all peeled in this creamy sauce that you eat with a spoon. My husband ordered the black butter sea bass which is cooked perfectly as well--perfect texture--tender and flaky. Though,... More

This place has excellent food with a view. Ushuaia is an expensive town, and you're going to spend a decent amount of money for some mediocre and even lousy food. So if you're going to splurge, you might as well do it at Kaupé. Whether the food is worth its price is open to debate, but its high quality cannot... More

Everyone in Ushuaia told us this was the best restaurant in town. We saved it for our last night in Ushuaia. It is a charming restaurant at the top of the hill so your view of the harbor is excellent. Ask for a table close to the window, although it is small enough that you can pretty much see from...

We had a fantastic birthday dinner here. This was the restarant experience without the slightest mistake. Very delicious food, recommendations by the waiter, quick and very polite service and a nice view. I don't need more for a perfect dinner.

The view was great, the king crab terrific! My husband had the natural king crab and I had the chowder, which was a spinach and crab dish with a little thick broth. The crab was meaty and tasty...all out of their shells. The Dulce de Leche was to die for! I tried making reservations online and submitted it several times... More
