Evening three course set menu was €9.70. We ate ajoblanco (fantastic) and porro (a version of gazpacho), followed by cheese pasta and mushrooms with egg, and finished with tiramisu and lemon tart. Excellent food and excellent value. The restaurant is licensed to sell alcohol. Staff were welcoming and helpful. The restaurant was busy and it is advisable to book.

Not since I was an apprentice Chef 53 years ago and dined on 3 continents, have I experienced such dire commodities labeled food. Wife and I sat at a table for 4 and was ordered off as it was reserved and shown a table for 2. The restaurant has about 40 covers.There were no reserved signs on any table at... More

I have visited El Calafate a few times, with both meat eaters and fellow vegetarians and every time I go I am always reminded of how amazing the food is. All the times I have gone I have ordered the menu and end up leaving super full and content. They always have a good variety of options and different types... More

We didn't go for the set menu (perhaps that was our downfall). I had the lentil falafels as a main. It arrived with some green leaves - just dry green leaves, no dressing, not even a tomato. The falafels themselves came sitting on some pretty flavourless red sauce (not enough of it to be able to sample what it tasted... More

Ate here as we saw it as vegetarian option. However i wasn't impressed. Soup was kind of good, but the salad had no taste, no dressing, just a bunch of vegetables cut in the plate. We also had a vegetable cake which was ok, nothing fancy, but very small size.

A bit like veggie food of the 70's your mum might cook for your veggie friends. The selection of deserts was the best. Very popular restaurant and staff work hard.

It being our first day in the city, we stumbled upon this restaurant by chance. The daily three course menu was a delight. The portions were large. I would suggest you order one for 2 people:) We loved the soup, salad, pasta and the excellent Tiramisu and Lemon cake. And very reasonably priced!! Highly recommend. Friendly and English speaking staff... More

So glad we tried this place for an evening meal. Nicely tucked away and pretty quiet, but with a great three course daily menu, and generous portions of superbly tasty food. A good vegetarian restaurant can be an amazing treat for everyone, not just veteran veggie like me, and we all left very full, happy and, in some cases, enlightened.... More

Daily menu is great option. Nonetheless the portion is enormously big - so better take the one for two person or half portion (if its possible) - but this is rarher advantage than drawbacks ;) Starter: great bread (better than in bakery) and a augberines (?) spread. Soups: huge and tasty! Second plate: Mousaka - delicious! Pasta - for me... More
