We came here because it was recommended in our travel guide. In short: Food wasn't tasty and the prices were more expensive than anywhere in Argentina including Buenos Aires. Don't go there, it's a tourist trap!

Lamb roasting in the window was the draw. Service was decent but prices high for what it was. Lamb plate was large which was good cause half was tender and juicy, half was dry and tough.

Nice place. Nothing special with the food. Lamb a little dry. empanada very good. Reletively to restaurants in Bariloche it is expensive. One time experiance. No reason to return.

Huge portions of very well cooked food. Far too much food for what we needed but quality was superb. Great waiter who talked us into a cheaper wine. Definitely worth a feed.

The food is very good but they charge an extra fee for using the cutlery. 30 pesos per person. This is not the tips that also should be paid.

I had a milanesa (breaded beef) which is probably not the house special and it was just average. The meat empanadas were good and the service was very good.

Compared to most of the places we ate at in Argentina this was nothing special. The steak was acceptable but nothing more. It's a large restaurant and specialties include Patagonia lamb. The place lacked atmosphere and service was mediocre, not a memorable experience but very expensive.

We were enticed into the restaurant as it looked nice and the menu was translated into English! We ordered "lamb on the cross" which is the house speciality. It was nice enough, but expensive, and the service was pretty poor from one waiter in particular who ignored us in favour of chatting up any and every girl in the place.... More

OK, we arrived a little late, after a walk at Perito Moreno, but we've been served a more-than-well-done sheep meat. Not a great welcome, not too expensive, but you won't see me there again.

Thank Gabriel J
