We had a wonderful meal here while staying at the Llao Llao resort. Free transfers from the resort. Delicious food and wine. I had the ossobuco which was superb, trout was also very good.

My boyfriend and I went there for our last dinner in Bariloche and everything went fantastic. The waitress spoke English so she really helped us to pick the perfect dish. The menu doesn’t have many options, but the food quality is absolutely incredibly. We had a delicious bottle of Luigi Bosca Malbec , highly recommended. Hopefully we will go back... More

Probably one of the best Italian meals 'ever' combined with sterling service and a fantastic wine list. The ambiance was extraordinary, the menu written in chalk as it changes frequently and all pastas made fresh each day.

We were at Il Gabbiano during our stay at Bariloche for an amazing dinner. All dishes were perfect and the staff attention was magnificent. If you ever come to Bariloche, you should pay a visit to Il Gabbiano for sure!

This restaurant suffers from voting inflation. It is nowhere near as good as suggested by people on TA. We have been to several good Italian restaurants around the world, and this is not one of them. The food was not terrible, but it's something an average chef can make at home (we had the spaghetti carbonara and rigatelli with tomato... More

This hotel was recommended to us by our hotel (and confirmed by TA). At midway through our trip, it was nice to have a break from all the red meat. The restaurant was a short distance from our hotel, but know that it's maybe 20-30 minutes from downtown Bariloche. It is lovely- lush gardens, separate dining areas, lots of light... More

I've been to Il Gabbiano a few times where at this point the waiter knows what I got the previous time and the exact wine, now that is service my friends! The dishes are stunningly delicious and having good italian is a great break from the steak. Love the atmosphere of this place and I feel like I am right... More
