Very expensive for a below average quantity and quality. Staff is not welcoming you nor customer minded at all.

I called in for dinner and the place was busy. The waiter found me a place and I sat... and sat... and sat. After 25 minutes I was getting close to walking out when a waitress came over and asked if had been served. I said no and placed an order. Interestingly another person arrived just before that and had... More

We stopped briefly in Ushuaia (pronounced as an s not sh) and wondered the town for a while before deciding to get a late lunch. The staff were very friendly even though they were due to close in half an hour, great english so I didn't have to struggle with my nascent Spanish. We ordered a seafood stew and an... More

We both had a crab lunch, which consisted of a plate of crab complete with some crab legs. The meat was easy to get out of the crab leg shell. With seafood sauce and bread - it was perfect. My husband had a beer and I had a Sprite $US 74

Highly recommended local restaurant with great fish and sea food. We had the hake but the king crab looked amazing on our neighbours' tables.... We also enjoyed excellent white wine here.

OK this is a nice looking restaurant with a nice looking menu. Reading the menu carefully you will notice the surcharge for table service is a mandatory extra, which seems normal in Argentina but immediately rankles my Australian outlook. I had in mind to try the signature dish centolla, or king crab, which is commonly advertised for about 80000 pesos... More

This restaurant was small but busy. the choice of food was great - although the speciality was predominantly sea food. The service was great and the waitress attentive. I would recommend it - it is opposite the bay

We were recommended this restaurant by our tour guide. We had a really nice meal there. The atmosphere is very informal but also very cheerful and friendly. The place is renowned for its fish, especially spider crab and black hake. We had some crab with our starter and a sort of hake fish pie for our main. Both were delicious,... More
