I was looking for a Pub to chill out in and have a hearty but not too expensive lunch. This place hit the spot. It was cozy and friendly, but with typical slow Argentinian service. They had a decent selection of beer as well. The food was great. I had a King Crab Provencale. It was excellent and I could... More

I called at this bar a couple of times over a couple of days and found it very interesting.place. The interior is packed with memorabilia and notes from patrons and this makes the ambience wonderful. On this visit I had the pizza fro lunch. It was excellent. Good beer, good food and great ambience. Great place.

Neatly decorated, casual, and excellent food. Great king crab dishes with very reasonable price, at least by Ushuaia standard. Service is not the highlight, you may have to go to the bar for your silvers and napkins.. but...

I had lunch here before an Antarctic expedition and was able to find a small table, busy place! Great selection of drinks and food. Had to try the crab while I was in town and it was great! Craft beer was great! Friendly staff. Fun atmosphere!

This friendly bar / pub is a warm place to stop for a drink and hot wholesome pub type food. The Beagle beer proved a good choice and the house wines by the glass were excellent. The staff were friendly and efficient. We enjoyed both visits whilst waiting for our ship.

35 minutes with no feedback for an hamburger, chicken sandwich and spaghettis? The waiter avoided us, he got our complaint about delay, after 10 minutes we called him and just "I forgot!" Not a single apology...too bad. The food after 40 min was cold, and the excuse was "changing shift at the kitchen". It is not worth it just for... More

Food was not great, overcooked meat and bland sauce. Clearly overpriced. Great environment, okay service.

The place looks nice and this is the only advantage. Food is tasteless and you pay here the same as in other, much better places. Not recommended

It may be the oldest pub in town but the food is horrible. I had an "Ensalada Ideal" for lunch. Almost no fresh products, only tinned meat and vegetables, from the tasteless king crab meat to mushrooms and corn. Ok its a bar / pub but food could be better, as people often want to eat something while having a... More
