We had to book the night before because the restaurant is very popular and therefore crowded. Our table was ready on time and service was good and fast (except for some additional bread that took long to come).
The topical dish is a casserole with many options available. Our choice went to the Bife de Chorizo “hunter” style and the vegetable with mozzarella. While we waited we had a nice loaf of bread with butter.
Casseroles were very good and huge (2 people eat very well with 1 casserole).

A great introduction to Patagonian stew dishes. A friend recommend this place to us and after a winding bus trip from Puerto Natales, we were quite keen to try some Argentinian delicacies for lunch.

They told us the portions for the stew dishes are for two people and it was certainly the case! We ordered the Mustard Chicken - chicken cooked in beer with vegetables, cream, mustard and fried potatoes and was absolutely lip smacking! Only tried couple of their house beers and did it disappoint. Recommend this place.

We have had dinner here at the recommendation of our drivers - really nothing special. They have these ‘discos’ which serve 2-3 people easily and are quite ok - really fat but tasty (or tasty because really fat, as you like!) Service was awful - so unfriendly, they acted like they were doing you a favour by serving you. It took ages to get our food and even more ages to get their attention for an additional
Glass of wine and dessert (which we did not get). And it too ages to get our bill as well despite the fact that there were people queuing for a table. If you have the chance to go to el calafate, try something else!

Fun place where you get LOTS of food cooked in a traditional way (plough). Something unique in El Calafate.

We couldn’t get in on our first night. So reserved for the next. I would recommend booking a table before you arrive in El Calafate as it’s a popular restaurant, and rightly so. Staff are helpful and food excellent. They advise 1 “plough “ between 2 and that is more than enough. There is no wine list, but you are invited to pick a bottle off the shelf. I went with the waiter’s suggestion and was not disappointed. Nice modern space to eat, and highly recommended.
Final tip; there is a taxi rank 1 block away; about 200m
