The restaurant was empty but we were quite early. We ordered a simple meal with a glass of wine. The lamb was delicious but the salad was very ordinary, just some lettuce and a few pieces of tomato. The wine was the small bottle served on airlines as a single drink and was easily the worst glass of wine we... More

The lamb as this restaurant was especially delicious. Large portion size, delicious grilled vegetables, and friendly service made it a memorable meal. Highly recommend if you want higher end fair with an Argentine flair.

Nice place but their lamb looks better than it tastes. A bit too fat and bland. There are no spices/salt to make it more interesting

We stumbled upon this place after walking by it on the way to our hotel. We were attracted by the fact that unlike most places in El Chalten they actually accept credit cards, and ended up having one of the best meals of our entire trip here. The steak was amazing, grilled perfectly & massive portions. Pastas were also very... More

We were attracted by the lamb in the window and it was delicious. Friendly service but the room was surprisingly empty and lacked atmosphere. A bit pricy for El Chalten especially the wine. One portion of lamb was plenty for woad!

As is typical of Argentinian parrillas, the mutton is cooked in the storefront where you get to see and smell your meal cooking. our food was brought to the table in individual, heated covered dishes. the size of the portions were more than generous. the cost was also typical and very fair. atmosphere was family friendly and very casual. it's...

We ended up here because it was the only place in town on Saturday night doing the cordero de asado (lamb) that we had been craving for a few days. In summary, the meat was very tasty! The salad was nice and fresh too. The service was a bit indifferent and the atmosphere was maybe a little sterile. Did we... More

While strolling through the streets of El Chalten, I came across this little jem of a restaurant towards the end of the tourist strip. There was a promo on the board outside the restaurant stating empanadas, Patagonian lamb and sides for $150 pesos. We ordered the promo and got the most tender lamb I've ever eaten, a large portion of... More
