We stumbled upon this place after walking by it on the way to our hotel. We were attracted by the fact that unlike most places in El Chalten they actually accept credit cards, and ended up having one of the best meals of our entire trip here. The steak was amazing, grilled perfectly & massive portions. Pastas were also very... More

We were attracted by the lamb in the window and it was delicious. Friendly service but the room was surprisingly empty and lacked atmosphere. A bit pricy for El Chalten especially the wine. One portion of lamb was plenty for woad!

We were there and had some good dishes for dinner. I recommend the Milanesa alla Napolitana. Although the service was a little confused and slow, the good food made up for that.

As is typical of Argentinian parrillas, the mutton is cooked in the storefront where you get to see and smell your meal cooking. our food was brought to the table in individual, heated covered dishes. the size of the portions were more than generous. the cost was also typical and very fair. atmosphere was family friendly and very casual. it's...

We ended up here because it was the only place in town on Saturday night doing the cordero de asado (lamb) that we had been craving for a few days. In summary, the meat was very tasty! The salad was nice and fresh too. The service was a bit indifferent and the atmosphere was maybe a little sterile. Did we... More

While strolling through the streets of El Chalten, I came across this little jem of a restaurant towards the end of the tourist strip. There was a promo on the board outside the restaurant stating empanadas, Patagonian lamb and sides for $150 pesos. We ordered the promo and got the most tender lamb I've ever eaten, a large portion of... More

Big place - acoustics of a municipal swimming pool. Geared up for quick turnaround. Ideal for carnivores in a hurry. Service efficient but non-personal.

Just wow, we had a perfectly huge plate of Lamb smothered in Mushroom right off the grill. The service was a bit slow, but they were packed and seemed to not have enough staff to handle the crowds. Worth the wait though, more then enough to eat and delicious.
