We chose this place based on the sign outside that listed the special. It was steak and fries which tasted great and came out fast. We had great service and would definitely go back to it.

Nothing special. Food is pretty tasteless and boring. Bolognese sauce was bits of meet with basically no sauce or tomatos. Fish was not fresh and mundane. Waitress was good and wine too.

Excellent beef and pastas. There was a group of 6 in our party, we first ate at La Vaca Atada for lunch and we all decided to return for dinner. The service was excellent, their kitchen got backed up a little but we didn't mind taking our time and enjoying such well prepared meals. Their flan completo for dessert was outstanding -- highly recommended if you like flan, dulce de leche and cream. A great find in El Calafate!

We stopped here randomly for lunch after spending some time walking around trying to find any restaurant open after 2 p.m. (most stores and restaurants close for a few hours in the afternoon here.) The service was excellent and very friendly, and our waitress spoke enough English to understand our requests. The food arrived quickly and was tasty. I had the lamb stew, husband had the chicken and rice. I would recommend either.

An eclectic restaurant ofering both the classical patagonian grilled lamb, beef and fish.
It was recommended to us as a place to get fish in El Calafate. And it was a dissapointment. The grilled trout was bitter (a mistake I tought it was reserved for beginners) and the day recomendation - swordfish was bland and dry. The service was friendly and fast
