Was looking for steak and found a great one! Amongst the 3 main dishes we ordered, lamb, trout and steak, the steak was our favourite!

Glad we ventured off the main street to find this place. Lamb wasn't in season when we visited so I suspect we had mutton. Despite this it was some of the best sheep I have ever had. Slow cooked and full of flavour. My fiance...More

From the tasty bread with lentil spread to smooth pumpkin soup, to main dish of Patagonian trout steamed sauvignon wine sauce and topped off with flan and dolce de Leche - La Zaina was a delicious experience.

This restaurant provided delicious food once again. Went here on recommendation and loved it. I had some of the best pork I have had here. No one in our group left disappointed. The wine is also very nice. Highly recommend it, make sure you book.

Great food (the lamb in Malbec wine is divine), friendly service, nice and cozy interior. It became our favourite restaurant in El Calafate so we went there twice in 4 days. Worth a visit, no doubt.

For a Tripadvisor success restaurant aimed squarely at tourists, it does actually fit the bill. Good lively atmosphere, excellent multilingual staff and huge portions ! We both ordered 'The lamb' but felt like we ended up with 'a lamb' each. One portion more than enough...More

Service was slow and not really good. Food was average. The soup of the day was a joke - like water. I would try another restaurant, like La Posta.

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.
