We came upon this amazing restaurant in "El Hoyo" when traveling to "Los Alerces National Park in Chubut". Immediately when we entered the restaurant we were greeted with a charming and inviting atmosphere. The owners welcomed us as old friends. The restaurant is situated in a picturesque landscape that we were able to enjoy through the many windows regardless of... More

We enjoyed Pirque so much that we ate here three times out of our 7 nights in the area. The owners use local produce such as morel mushrooms, lamb, and trout and are very creative in their cooking. The prices are reasonable given the quality of the food and they have a wonderful selection of wine. We enjoyed the local... More

The owners of Buena Vida Social Club in El Bolson recommended Pirque to us. We made reservations for lunch, which were necessary: it was full at 2 pm. The restaurant is a lovely little building nestled on a windy hill with mountain views in all directions. Blossoming lavender was everywhere on the grounds. The owners and staff were very nice...

The setting of this restaurant is beautiful. On top of a little hill offering you a wonderful view over the valley. Table nr 1 gives you the best table if you are 4-6 people. The trout was very good and the service excellent. You will certainly need a reservation as there are not many tables in this restaurant.

We enjoyed a fantastic experience at Pirque. The food was absolutely delicious. We had smoked trout and salad to start, trout and goulash as mains and fresh fruit and apple strudel for dessert. All were perfectly cooked and very fresh. The trout was beautifully smoked by the restaurant. The owner was warm and friendly and really made our experience special.... More

We went to Pirque twice while visiting El Bolson, and loved the food, the atmosphere and the stunning view. Rave reviews for a few of the trout dishes and the pork and the spinach crepes for dinner; the crepe with mixed berry sauce for dessert was phenomenal, and the chocolate mousse-like dessert was sublime. The owners are warm and generous.... More

We visited Pirque at the recommendation of our B&B hosts and were not disappointed! The restaurant is set up on a hill overlooking the valley in a the first floor of a beautiful home. We were the only patrons in the restaurants and felt like we had a private chef. They had an extensive selection of local wines to choose... More

Excellent place! I had dinner one evening with my family, and we were the only guests. El Hoyo is not packed with tourists in generalL Let alone in mid July, due to the harsh weather. So I guess that was to be expected. The place is family-run, and the owner (cook and waitress) was a very friendly lady. She payed... More
