After eating meat as we travelled through Argentina my wife and I were really looking forward to a seafood dish. This restaurant was recommended by our guide in Puerto Arenas. In addition it was my wife's birthday - what a good choice. We went with some friends from the hotel and had a delicious two course meal with two bottles... More

On our way to Lago Grey we had a quick lunch here on the second Christmas day. The place was filled with locals - which is a very reassuring sign to me. We had excellent sea food (cf. photos) accompanied by half a bottle of crisp sauvignon plan. Excellent value for money, fast and efficient service.

We went for lunch and we're not impressed. We ordered calafate sours, which were premixed, too sugary, and not that good. We tried to order several things like soup and Parmesan clams and were told they didn't have it. Our waiter up sold us on the calamari and I order salmon with seafood sauce. The calamari basically tasted like burnt... More

Great food! Try the salmon. Very fresh and tasty and don't forget the city beer. Calafate is a good choice. Location: City centre. Environment: Very traditional 😄

This large restaurant was surprisingly packed when we arrived at nearly 11pm at night, and we soon saw why it is so popular. The quality of the food is first class, and the prices are very reasonable. There is a wide range of options on offer, including many Chilean specialities, and why not treat yourself to a pisco sour or... More

La ultima esperanza came highly recommended from our mountain guide and we liked it so much we went back two days in a row. The atmosphere is warm, charming and bustling with activity during the lunch hour--even on a Tuesday and Wednesday. That was part of the fun for us, seeing the locals out enjoying a nice, leisurely lunch during... More

We had friends in Puerto Natales and when we went out for dinner with them, they chose this place. Sure enough, there seemed to be mostly Chileans in the house. The service was very good and it had properly set tables with white linen and fine glass ware, but was not expensive. The restaurant had a huge menu to choose... More

Very popular with locals and crowded. Fish and seafood choice very limited. Fish with various sauces ( like in chinese eatery) has only two varieties - eel and salmon. Sea food also limited. My better half had a good piece of beef an I had eal in white, bland, sauce.
