We managed to find this one open when no other restaurants were and it saved our lives. Nice people, warm place. Although life in Ushuaia is expensive, we were glad this place was open and we could get some food.

Ushuaia has an afternoon seista and many of of the shops close. This is one of the places that was open when we arrived in town hungry. The menu had safe sandwiches and fried items, but not the sort of things I generally eat if...More

I went there alone which I rarely do. But the ambiance and setting make it a good place to be solo. The food came quickly. Big portions. Waitress was agreable. It's a cafe fast food joint. And that's you get. Result!

Description
Banana Cafe Bar is one of the first cafes in Uhsuaia with over 22 years serving islanders and tourists from all over the world. We have a rather typical menu for an Argentinian Cafe: coffees, local drafted beer, drinks, beef tenderloin sandwichs, breaded beef, pure breadcrum toasted sandwiches,Spanish Tortillas. What makes banana stand out is not the menu but the quality and flavor of the food, the size and our caring service. talking about the music, we only listen to Argentinian music, all styles: folk, pop, rock, reggae. We serve from 7 AM till 1 Am, and kitchen is open from 10 AM till 00:30 AM and till 1:30 on weekends.
