Advertised as the cheapest restaurant in Ushuaia. Lot's of local people come here for lunch - the food is quite good and the prices are OK. The salads could be better but there are not a lot of fresh vegetables in Ushuaia. Service could be better of course but is still OK.

Went here for dinner after it was recommended to us. As a starter, we had the omelet, the Vitello tonato and an empanada. Omelet was good, the other two okay. As main dish, we had 1/4 grilled chicken and the beef steak, both with a side salad. Chicken was okay (small though), beef was the worst we had in Argentina... More

The food here was a great value for money, service was fast, and they served some decent steaks. Prices was cheap compared to other places. We ate here twice during our stay.

We went there as we wanted to eat early and quickly. Food was good and service both nice and efficient. Interesting wine too. There are definitely higher end options in town but this is great of you are looking for something simple.

If you are in Ushuaia and you don´t want to spend fortune in restaurant, try this one where you can blend in with locals. It is usually quite crowded during the lunch time. You can get decent and not overpriced meal. Be careful - if you have gluten free diet - I ordered salmon fillet and it was in flour... More

The restaurant was full, but the service was good. However the steak I ordered was so tough as to be inedible. The waiter noticed I had not eaten it and brought a new one apologetically. This was also inedible. My partner's fish was ok.
