I had the salmon ceviche which was very good. Next I had the grilled lamb which was overcooked but still tasty. The house Carmeniere wine was also quite good. Prices are a little bit steep but service was good. I'd go back.

The attention was bad, but the food was even worst. We went through the sea table and the jekus table. Both were terrible. Not flavor at all. The best, the Doritos. Do not eat here if you like tasty food, but the portions are huge.

We stopped in for lunch one day during the week, we were very happy with it. Wasn't busy at all. Me and my wife both had ceviche. I had the Conger eel ceviche, I definitely recommend it! Waitress was very nice and spoke some English, altogether a good experience

Accidental lunch spot while waiting for bus. to Puerto Natales, We were shocked at the quality of the food. Tasty, fresh and delicious. Cadillo de mariscos, Centolla and some salmon. Phenomenal! highly recommend. Wash it down with Austral beer. Good to go.

Pretty ordinary food in a fairly dull setting. Pisco sours were the pre-mixed variety. The octopus entree was awful! The only saving grace was the bread rolls with salsa.

First dinner in Patagonia and Jekus was not what I expected as they touted the spirit of Patagonia. Seated in the rear of the restaurant because I was solo, I struggled to decipher between the blaring Chilean pop music from the kitchen and the mixed mellow tape over the speakers- don't sit in the back. My empanadas were not cooked... More

We went there hopping for a nice parrillada, wich was very disappointing and to complete the poor food, they started a karaoke with very loud music and a pushy DJ trying someone to participate.

We stopped in as the menu looked interesting- our waiter took our order then never returned- but we had service from other waiters-- the food was so so- i had scallops which were pretty tasteless and my husband had lamb- they are really into the vertical food concept- dessert - just ok..
