It was recommended by the owner of the hostel and lived up to his reviews. Nothing fancy, but a favorite of the locals and the staff is very welcoming and the food plenty good.

In a restaurant with a seemingly good menu and friendly staff, I opted for the trucha pesto pasta. By any standard, it was very disappointing and needed a good load of cheese to be tasty. Pesto and the pasta itself were both not what I had expected, and the trucha did not save the dish. Not poor, but just not... More

We went there to sample the Otto Tipp beers. Mr. Tipp passed away already but the restaurant serves the beer brewed next door. We found the beers refreshing. Our pastas were unfortunately just average. While the quantity is substantial, we found the price a bit higher than other restaurants.

we were recommended this restaurant and had a great time, the food was excellent and the staff very enjoyable. The live music was the finishing touch. Very nice, a little outside the center, so do ask for directions.

We were lucky it was very quiet . The food , pastas were excellent. I couldn't decide on which beer to have so I had 5 samples. This place is away from cars in a residential area with a garden which makes it worthwhile . Not sure El Bolson is worth the long drive from Bariloche.

Just great food. I had a wonderful (small) asado and creamy potatoes. Both were huge and the potatoes turned out to be its own bowl of scalloped potatoes. Good wines offered by the glass. And the service was surprisingly good being totally full that day. I could have eaten there several times if I would have waited for a table... More

my group stopped here on our way to Cholila for a week of fishing. So half way from Bariloche our driver stopped at this little restaurant for lunch. The service was attentive. I had the pizza especial. Great crust and topping. Several of the party had the spoked trout ravioli, which came in a huge portion and was delicious. The... More

I only ordered a burger and fries, but both were very good. My server was friendly amd attentive. Overall a very pleasant experience. I would recommend this... More

The quantity of food was huge! The service was poor. Not that interesting unless you get something like trucha or jabalin. Expensive for El Bolson.

Ok let's start from the beginning: the bread was stale, the server only brought us 1 menu, we sat and watched while tables that were seated after us ordered and received their drinks, when we did order our drinks we had to wait for 15 minutes for the server to bring glasses, the steak was a terrible cut and incredibly...
