We came across this place while walking around earlier in the day. Really quirky, set in a galvanised shed with a range of old farm equipment and bottles inside. Really lovely atmosphere. We weren't too hungry so had a mushroom risotto each and it was...More

This has a great atmosphere with the walls covered and cute decor. The food is classic Argentinian and delicious. We came here one night where a boisterous tour group dominated the entire restaurant which is why I didn't give it 5 stars. The food is...More

Stews are a speciality of this comfortable and attractive restaurant, and home cooking is the style. Reasonable prices. To be recommended.

Hello, Marine. We thank you for your review, it's a shame for us to hear about your boyfriend getting sick. The last dinner is not always the cause of the pain, but anyway any opinion help us to grown up more every day.

Lovely cosy restaurant decorated with an interesting collection of memorabilia. Absolutely delicious food - highly recommend the trout with risotto - and good wine. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Can't fault it!

Description
La Zaina Restaurante & Wine Bar, it is a liltle and cozy restaurante, just one block from the Main St. We have a very quiet and roomy place, where our guest can talk each ohter, and enjoy a great evening inside or in our incredible back yard. We have the best cocktails and Wines at the town, We are speciilst in beverage, but first at all, wine lovers and we love what we do. You will find our famous Patagonic Lamb, in several way to be coocked. And also you could taste our great bistecs and Wines from all around our country. Imagine to go to the past, to one of the pioneers Farm Houses at Patagonia. La Zaina is sorrounded by any kind of memories from said places. It is like a Museum, but also, you can spend a great time. Good music, good wine, the best Lamb, just one block from the main st. Pls book yr table.
