Stopped here for dinner our first night here - was one of the few places that was open (we later learned that some of the restaurants don't seem to open until 7) and that had power (infrastructure issues during our stay). Ordered the tenderloin (beef)...More

I went there alone which I rarely do. But the ambiance and setting make it a good place to be solo. The food came quickly. Big portions. Waitress was agreable. It's a cafe fast food joint. And that's you get. Result!

Banana Cafe Bar is one of the first cafes in Uhsuaia with over 22 years serving islanders and tourists from all over the world. We have a rather typical menu for an Argentinian Cafe: coffees, local drafted beer, drinks, beef tenderloin sandwichs, breaded beef, pure breadcrum toasted sandwiches,Spanish Tortillas. What makes banana stand out is not the menu but the quality and flavor of the food, the size and our caring service. talking about the music, we only listen to Argentinian music, all styles: folk, pop, rock, reggae. We serve from 7 AM till 1 Am, and kitchen is open from 10 AM till 00:30 AM and till 1:30 on weekends.
