Accidental lunch spot while waiting for bus. to Puerto Natales, We were shocked at the quality of the food. Tasty, fresh and delicious. Cadillo de mariscos, Centolla and some salmon. Phenomenal! highly recommend. Wash it down with Austral beer. Good to go.

Pretty ordinary food in a fairly dull setting. Pisco sours were the pre-mixed variety. The octopus entree was awful! The only saving grace was the bread rolls with salsa.

First dinner in Patagonia and Jekus was not what I expected as they touted the spirit of Patagonia. Seated in the rear of the restaurant because I was solo, I struggled to decipher between the blaring Chilean pop music from the kitchen and the mixed mellow tape over the speakers- don't sit in the back. My empanadas were not cooked... More

We went there hopping for a nice parrillada, wich was very disappointing and to complete the poor food, they started a karaoke with very loud music and a pushy DJ trying someone to participate.

We stopped in as the menu looked interesting- our waiter took our order then never returned- but we had service from other waiters-- the food was so so- i had scallops which were pretty tasteless and my husband had lamb- they are really into the vertical food concept- dessert - just ok..

The salmon and beef were both really well done, the waiter's recommended wine was spot on; (Casillero del Diablo Reservation Privada). The decor was wooden rustic and warm. All in all a great find in a cold and windy town.

The king crab al naturale, on the entree menu was perfect as a main course and amazingly delicious. I've had various versions of King crab cooked in different ways, and this way natural, you taste the natural flavor and sweetness of the crab. Excellent! My adult daughter enjoyed the pumpkin soup and calamari, . These were good. My son and... More

We left this restaurant as mid way through eating my salad I found two bugs. Alive, and crawling through my lettuce. The restaurant apologized and didn't charge us and we left. Anywhere that doesn't wash their lettuce well enough to avoid bugs still being present is not somewhere I trust with my food. Avoid.

We had dinner here our first night in Patagonia and it was awesome. I had a lamb dish and my wife seafood and really enjoyed it. I would definitely go there again. It was a casual laid back place and service was very good.

Ordered ceviche and the Parilla para dos plus 2 bottles of wine and 2 Pisco sours. Total was 150,000 CLP (($300 AUD). We got - dry and overlooked meat, terrible Pinot Noir and Merlot, and Pisco sours pre mixed (a massive no no for a quality bar!). The ceviche was good though, but expensive for the portion size. Service was... More
