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.

Having read the reviews we went for the braised lamb and it is indeed something special. We enjoyed the ambience and the friendly but efficient service so we went back for our second night and had excellent steaks. Warmly recommended.

If only we had stumbled upon La Zaina on our first night...run, don't walk, to this restaurant. Order the braised lamb in malbec sauce. It's fabulous. I wish we might have had the opportunity to eat here again. All the other restaurants we tried in town were pale in comparison.

La Zaina is a dream come true. We stayed 3 nights at Calafate and went back for dinner each day. The service is wonderful and the food is superb. We tried multiple items from the menu, all excellent, but our absolute favorite was the braised lamb with malbec sauce. Very nice wine selection and cocktail list as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a rustic, traditional meal in Calafate.

Lovely quaint restaurant. My fiance said it was the best rib eye steak he had had and up there in top meals.

An appetizer that came was tasty ànd my trout was also good.

Highly recommended.
