Food is soso at best, price while medium, is not in line with their mediocre quality. Will certainly not go back there.

El Muro has the perfect post-hiking food. The lamb lasagna was to die for, with generous portions of lamb and cheese (not overloaded with just the pasta). The menu was quite extensive so plenty of other options as well. We came here two nights in a row it was so good. Try to make a reservation in the morning or... More

Certainly the best stake we have had in the whole trip!! Cosy and well decorated place! Good music! They even played some Brazilian songs while we were there, which we found very thoughtful! Food was awesome! Stakes were cooked to perfection. We have had the " lomo con pimienta " and the " bife de chorizo". Good wine list and... More

In fairness, there was one waitress, and at least 20 German tourists who piled into the place. The lamb lasagna I received was good and filling but I'd tasted better in other restaurants. The wine was good. My advice: If you see this establishment crowded and people waiting for tables, try another evening, but their food is acceptable.

I'm not sure what it is called on the menu, but you can order a big platter of meat (beef, chicken, lamb, blood sausage, chorizo), which is enough for about 4 people. It's really good! The blood sausage isn't really my thing, but I sampled it. Nice taste, but the texture grossed me out. Others loved it! This is a... More

The special pizza was maybe the best pizza we ever had. Also the steak and the fruit salad with icecream on the second visit were very good. Both time we ordered a local beer (dark and blond). Both were good. The atmosphere and the service are warn and pleasent. Some of the pics are after we already started eating 😁

We were at the tail end of the season so not every restaurant was open and open for lunch. Cool little place. When opening the menu, I noticed they had a lot of dishes. Sometimes I wonder if restaurants try to do too many dishes and can't do any one of them great. I had steak and the portion was... More

Not much was open during our stay in El Chalten but El Muro had good reviews and was two minutes from our hotel so we gave it a try and im glad we did. The empanadas to start were delicious and light and properly homemade. We both had a steak for the main and it was lovely. The waitress was... More
