Amazing fire cooked meal. Staff was friendly, good service. Sat us down without a reservation & still has great service.

Great steak, very well executed. However the side dishes were not as good, our table was inevitably crooked and the waiters seemed a bit lost. Overall, nothing terrible, but it did feel a bit pricey for what it offered.

Very nice view and ambiance. Most Members of the staff were friendly. They have very good parillas, but I recommend you to avoid the pasta.

My husband and daughter and I dined here on our last night in el Calafate before heading home. The restaurant is quite a way along dirt street in a residential area so a bit out of the way of the tourist centre of town. Inside...More

Down an obscure backstreet in El Calafate, Don Pichon is the spot to head for authentic Argentine grilled meat for locals and in-the-know tourists. Spectacular views over Lago Argentino compete with the equally compelling sight of whole sides of beef and lamb being slow roasted...More
