I was drawn to this restaurant by the whole lambs spread-eagled above a fire of that kind of really thick charcoal, and the lamb was the most succulent I've ever tasted--juicy and tender with crispy crackling ribs. Also, they had a corn sour with a scoop of parmesan ice cream in the middle, surrounded by a thin, savory crust. Amazing. When I saw "parmesan ice cream" in the description I assumed it was just another bad translation of something, but no! Everything was excellent. perfect risotto, cream of trout amuse bouche. Large portions and true finesse.

My partner and I went for dinner there on my birthday. The food and wine were amazing making it a very special night. The service was outstanding. My partner and I don’t speak Spanish well however he spoke to our waitress and informed her that it was my birthday. They then brought out a cake with a candle and champagne for me! It was a great ending to a wonderful night.
It’s a must visit restaurant in El Calafate! Order the meat plate for 2 and you won’t be disappointed!

This cozy, Argentinian restaurant serves fantastic meals and has the best local wines.
The owner who is as well the main cook is a warm and kind host. He advises the best to choose the main courses, the beverages and desserts, not the most expensive ones.
