Mexican food was good....Ate a Plater named Sueco Volador for 3 people (4 to 5 people can eat) very good....Cheese on Nacho chips were actually made with cheddar cheese (must ask for cheddar)....Good to eat

The food is what you'd find in any strip mall in the United States, so my advice is walk a half a block fartger to Manush and enjoy delicious beer and gastropub deliciousness. Or, find one of the many steakhouses in the area.

Very friendly service but below average food that was expensive, targeted at the tourist clientele. Better find something else.

The name has changed on this place and perhaps the ownership as well. It's quaint, comfortable and food was good but the prices were a bit high for Mexican eats. We paid more for a platter of chicken fajitas than we did for a delicious steak the next night.

Arrived early, around 8p. Was pleasantly surprised to hear it was happy hour and received two drinks for the price of one. Enjoyed the pineapple and peach daiquiris very much. My husband didn't really like his margarita too much- mostly lemon with tequila. Around 9p it started to get busy. Service was very good and waitress spoke English. Ordered nachos... More

The final ticket included items which we didn't order, the waiters were not very attentive and the food is dissapointing. The decor is nice though

Its very far from proper mexican food, everything seems to have been pulled out of the freezer and microwaved just before serving. The waiters are unaware and more interested in gossiping behind the counter than doing their job. Nothing positive to say.

We visited here due to the guide book reccomendation. Although the place is has a nice interior and the waitress was very friendly, the food let it down. We shared tacos which tasted more like Asian stir fry than Mexican food. There's plenty of other places in Bariloche for better food.

We came here, on recommendation of the Lonely Planet but we were very dissapointed... The bread with two types of 'salsa' was however very good and the starter (chicken wings with home made bbq marination and blue cheese sauce) was very very good! we thought that this was a winner! Until the main dishes... My friend had the 'sabana de... More

Took the kids for Mexican food. They serve a good size portion, more than enough for one person, or two!! Food fresh and really tasty. Local hangout, has a good vibe. Reasonably prices. Good experience will go again!
