Very good restaurant as a result it is very busy. We tried to go on a Saturday afternoon for lunch and it was impossible. We made reservations for the next day and had no problems. The food is excellent especially the barbecued lamb. Salad bar had a wide selection as did the dessert bar. Great place to go with children... More

We thought it was beautiful, loved the animals they have outdoors (llamas, alpacas, etc.), but the Tenedor Libre (all you can eat) seemed too expensive. We went for the sandwiches and were more than satisfied: fresh, natural ingredients, homemade delicious bread, fast and good service. Restaurant was recommended by a local friend at Puerto Octay, so we knew it had... More

Of course it is a bit expensive, it is all you can eat after all. But the food was great. You have many choices, and they all are very tasty. Remember to ask for the lamb.

Food was good. Great selection of berries for dessert. It can get crowded (it was when we arrived). The only reason to not give a 5-star rating is that it was expensive for its service. But it is a nice place to enjoy and plan to spend a couple of hours from having lunch to enjoying the place. Outdoors there... More

Beautiful day! Didn't matter if food tasted terrible as view was spectacular. A good thing food was pretty good, arrived around 6pm, a lot of food finished and weren't replenished so missed out. Some waiters didn't look happy but most were friendly. Drinks included which was a bonus, kids loved the animals and play ground. Will go back but earlier.
