We enjoyed our meal here , and the waitress was very friendly and helpful. The food is tasty and wholesome and the portions are large enough to share. It is a little bit of a walk from the centre of town , but well worth the effort.

We had our dinner there. Very good decoration and atmosphere in the restaurant. You could really tell the owner devotes a lot of his love to the restaurant. Amazing food - we had empanadas, canelones, lamb stew and vegetarian dish. We want to specially thank Rodrigo. Thank you for your warm welcoming!! Wish you all the best :)

Visited without a reservation, were welcomed and well looked after. Excellent, tasty home cooking. Believe what reviewers say about portion size! Perfect after a days hiking - or even a long minibus ride ...

Very good meal in Puta Vida, on edge of the town. One of the few places where the bread was something to write home about (usually bread in Argentina is more like something to write off!). Great for very tasty pies band and stews, piping hot out of the oven. We were warned we had ordered too much food and... More

It's a bit of a walk from downtown, especially when you're exhausted from hiking, but I'm so glad we came here. It's a fun, eclectic atmosphere with three levels of dining; we were seated upstairs. It doesn't feel crowded even though the tables are close together. The waitress brought out this amazing small loaf of warm bread with spreadable cheese,... More

This restaurant was very homey and had a great menu. I loved the atmosphere and they had a good food menu to choose from. Would definitely recommend when in El Calafate!

Busy restaurant with a great relaxed feel. Colourful walls and informal dining. Great food ( we had lamb stew with pastry crust) and empanadas. Menu is different and features varied vegetarian friendly food

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Pura Vida. The waiter spoke English and was super helpful, in clarifying dishes on the menu, etc. The food was great. (The people seated next to us, also really enjoyed their dishes, as well.) FYI: the restaurant won't provide tap water to drink, only bottled water, for an additional charge (irritating, admittedly). The receipt... More
