We did not have a reservation but by going a little early, we were seated upstairs. Service was excellent and the food we had was very good. The vegetarian meal and hake fish was tasted and a nice portion. They did not accept credit cards...More

La Cocina has a varied menu with fish, steaks, and chicken dishes. They have also got some English speakers on the staff which is great if your Spanish is shaky. The restaurant seems popular with locals as well as tourists which is always a good...More

Seriously, it was the WORST restaurant me and my family went during our Ushuaia+El Calafate trip, if not the worst I went in my life. The meal was expensive, came cold and the lamb I asked (with "polenta") was practically 60% nerves + fats. The...More

I ordered a simple boloñesa, it was the worst pasta I ate. No taste, no flavor, no... The first starter dish was pumpkin soup which was ok. The service was basic and we had ask for things that should be in this relatively expensive restaurant

Expensive for what you get. Not tasty, I make better pasta and sauces at home. The spagety tasting comes in tiny portions. Paid more than a good steak house and went out hungry after a bad meal. Stay away.

The food is good, the place is quaint and we visited more than once. But dinnertime demands a reservation, and the evening crowd is large and loud and the floor staff seemed short-handed. Don't be in a hurry and you'll have a nice meal.

I was booked in here to meet with a small group of people, and so we had a set menu. Food was good enough, but nothing memorable. Service was friendly. I had a better dining experience at La Zaina and Kau Kaleshen a few days...More
