Very good restaurant. A little summary of italian most relevant plates. The place is ideal for a romantic dinner. Share an appetizer and good for anyone of the menu. The ossobuco milanese is fantastic, a little dry or overcooked for my taste but fantastic at this extreme latitude of the globe. In desserts list, go for the classic tiramisu or... More

We had a dreamy evening at II Gabbiano. The restaurant is very pretty in a cozy, rustic way. It was difficult to decide from the many wonderful choices on the menu. Everything was homemade and delicious. The service and wine selection were excellent too. I look forward to returning one day.

We enjoyed this restaurant on our last trip to Bariloche. As we stayed at the Llao Llao hotel and didn't want to drive to dinner we ended up again at Il Gabbiano. We love this restaurant as it is consistently good. Food is extremely well prepared, service is friendly and the owners all always around, which is a nice touch.... More

This place seems to be a favorite for guests at Llao Llao but that shouldn't deter you. The food was very good, the wait-staff was delightful and we could not have enjoyed it more.

My wife and I had a very romantic meal and very nicely prepared entrees. The choices are limited but options for all tastes. Wine and whisky selection is very extensive. Service is friendly and efficient. Well worth the high price.

Out of town, but don't miss it (even if you are not of the lucky few staying at the Llao LLao resort close by). Ever changing menu is classic Italian, with local ingredients. The Italian lineage of the place is evident.

Wonderful Italian restaurant very close to the Llao Llao hotel. We went here twice and absolutely loved it. We had the same waiter who remembered what we had ordered the first time - very impressive. Food and service were impeccable. Reservations are essential. Do not miss this place!

So.... on these sits, reviews are not only subjective, they are comparative. How to give a five rating to a restaurant the doesn't do anything particularly novel or innovative? In part, it's in comparison to what else is around.....and in part it's how they delver on their promises. The beef was the best I've had in Argentina, including highly recommended... More

We went for a corporate meal for 17 people, not an easy number to manage all on one table, and the service was impeccable! I take my hat off to Guillermo and his team for making us feel welcome and not letting any glass go empty! The food was incredible, plentiful and of a very high standard. Not a fault... More
