We lunched at Kaupe yesterday determined not to let previous diner's put downs affect our choice. We chose the degustation menu but also had a unique amuse bouche - an egg cooked for an hour served in a squid jus. Stunning. It got even better - generous portions of King crab, followed by scallop Ceviche - perfect, subtle & so... More

After reading a few reviews we were a bit concerned about the service and flavor of the food. We could not disagree more about the food and service, both were excellent. We had the Argentine scallops, caprese salad, sea bass and tenderloin.....all excellent. Wine and food prices were reasonable. Bread was delicious, fresh out of the oven!! Highly recommend!😘

We wanted to experience the best seafood that Ushuaia had to offer as from the start the food was so good we came again the second night for dinner. We had the fish ceviche for entre and then the octopus and seabass with sage and lemon that was so tender and tasty. Second night we ordered the tenderloin George that... More

We visited this restaurant because of the reviews and a recommendation from our hotel. The food was far from perfect. Ceviche excellent but sea bass and potatoes undercooked. When we mentioned this, they put it in the microwave for a couple of minutes and did not even apologise. Yes the view is beautiful but this is a tourist trap restaurant... More

I was fortunate enough to be able to visit Kaupe during my stay in Ushuaia, and it was an incredible experience. Ensure yourself a table at sunset and tasting menu through advance reservations. The quality of food is impeccable and on par with many larger cities. Fresh, executed well technically, and when paired with the service received was an occasion... More

My husband and I had a lovely lunch in this small restaurant located a few blocks north of the main street in downtown Ushuaia. We started with the day’ special appetizer of ceviche which was the best we had in Ushuaia. Unlike others we tasted, this one was full of flavor and citrus and prepared our pallets for the meal...

While we found some things to like that comported with the restaurant's good reviews on TripAdvisor, we experienced major disappointments, particularly with the main courses. While the view is nice, the food is generally bland. The one exception was the carpaccio, which was flavorful and tender. The king crab appetizer was watery, though at least it was accompanied by a... More

The surroundings, the view, the dinner and the service were all perfect! We enjoyed ourselves tremendously in this family run restaurant. The 2 owners are wonderful people!

Of all the meals we had in Ushuaia, this was the best one. We ordered the 1065 peso degustation menu, which includes wine and coffee. The food was a celebration of local seafood, with few distractions, not even much in the way of sides! We had king crab served natural with lemon and a kind of mayonnaise, ceviche of scallops,...

Service was excellent. My spouse was on crutches and they came to greet us outside and helped her back into the taxi on departure. Every member of the team made our dining experience wonderful. You pay a small cover charge for bread but it kept on flowing throughout the meal, so much so we had to ask them to stop... More
