We stumbled upon the modest Carlitos while walking Puerto Natales. It is a few streets away from the plaza and not as touristy. It seems patronized by locals which is always a good sign. We were here a little early for lunch but were seated promptly. Still on a quest to satisfy our craving for lamb we ordered the parrilla... More

We ate here twice. The food was good both times and the service was friendly and nice. The restaurant is quite large so it is usually easy to get a table.

Delicious lamb. The asado cordero is of a huge portion, probably ideal for 2 ppl with a couple side dishes and a bottle of wine. I went by myself and couldn't finish it, so I asked them to bag it up for me to take home for a second glorious feasting of the perfectly bbqed lamb.

We came here to taste the "cordero asado al palo" as they have in the window on the corner of the street so you can see how it is made. They bring it on an iron plate over some hot cloak to bring the 3 pieces for one portion hot, and a lettuce with tomatoes, hot pepper and onions. With... More

At this restaurant you can have a good barbecue of lamb. The menu offers a range of different preparations of :meat ,poultry, fish, seafood,salads. The place has a colloquial style . The service is fairly good and the prices are good.

The restaurant is almost in the center of Puerto Natales. We have been twice and enjoyed fish the first and Parilla the second time. Both visits were great due to the very nice staff and for sure the food.

We were told by lots of people to go here so we got our expectations high, but to be objective, the place is totally average, I just think its popular. The food wasn't bad, but not great either and the prices were not as cheap.

Presume this is a big hit with the locals, nice colloquial atmosphere, simple menu with plenty of BBQ meats. Not a bad spot at all for those keen on a meaty meal

Once again I made the rookie mistake of trying to save some pesos on food. Restaurants in Puerto Natales range from expensive to super-expensive and I went to this joint to try the local delicacy of lamb. First of all, it is not a restaurant, it is a food factory, everything's mass produced, from the frozen, reconstituted chips, to the... More
