Nice restaurant in PN. We had the king crab stuffed avocado and octopus for appetizers which were AMAZING. We then had the baked house fish and the patagonian camel for entrees which were ok. Not bad but not great either. I would come back and try other things.

You cannot find a better place for honest food in a friendly place.

Full all the time with many visitors of Puerto Natales wonders.

Service is slow but it is authentic food.

Prices are moderate and you get more than what you pay.

The centolla's plates (king crab) are superb.

The entrecôte fantastic.

Ask for patatas al pobre (french fries with caramelized onion with two fried eggs in the top). WOW!

Start with little en crunchy meat empanadillas, you will ask for a second order.

Good local beers and wines.

A big HD TV screen was projecting a fabulous documentary about the Chilean Patagonia and all of us, specially the kids, were mesmerized by the scenes.

In summary, home made food in a happy place that opens very early.

Din't miss it!

\This place is probably where you were thinking of going out to eat that evening\

We closed the place down after getting in late on the bus from Torres Del Paine.

Staff were incredibly friendly and did not once try to hurry us along, even after I ordered the Patagonian Camel meat stew which was huge (12.5k Peso/$18usd).

Sea bass was light and fresh, washed down with a bottle of vino (7-10k peso/$10-15usd).

Great vibe, there were many other small groups of people coming to spend an hour or two relaxing around wooden tables and various art works adorning the walls.

The selection is not large but what they do serve, they do mostly very well. The best fried potatoes (french fries) in the region, freshly made and not from bags frozen in Belgium or elsewhere, and shipped over, as is the case for other restaurants in Natales. This place fills up at meal time and it may still be packed at 10 pm.

Best see food in Puerto Natales. Try see food soup, it is just amazing! We came back to the same place to have a soup several times. Cold climate and hot and rich soup is just a best remedy of all.
