We visited with another couple we met at our hotel. The place is lovely and we had an amazing view out over the lake to the hills beyond, which with a storm at the time made for a very dramatic backdrop. The service was faultless - worthy of any Michelin 1 star. Each dish was artistically very well presented and... More

From the moment we walked down the gravel path, through the lovely gardens and down to The Butterfly, we realised this was a special place. They have a terrace looking out over the lake, with wonderful views of the mountains - great at sunset. Inside, the restaurant is decorated in Patagonian wooden style; lots of character and tastefully set out.... More

We ate Christmas dinner at Butterfly and it was excellent! The restaurant is very attractive, with an incredible scenic view of the lake and mountains. Christmas dinner was a pre fixe menu of 10 tasting dishes and the food was delicious, the service excellent and the presentation was great. The restaurant is a little pricey, but that being said, it... More

Went to butterfly with friends for New Year's Eve also with our 1-year old baby daughter. Staff were super accommodating, professional and friendly - probably the best service we've had in all of Argentina. We had a special 10-course meal paired with great Argentinian wines and were very impressed with the creativity and quality of the food. Definitely recommend for... More

We were in Bariloche for one night, and this restaurant was probably the highlight of our visit to Bariloche. A fixed 5 course menu served in a romantic ambience overlooking the lake. The waitress was so delightful it made everything taste even better. Cant wait to go back...

We enjoyed our dinner there. The portions are more towards French style, however, the style of cooking is a bit more general European style. Beautiful view. The music was more towards the American crowd. We would have appreciated if it was more Latino type as it seemed that they were trying too hard to show they didn't belong to Argentina/Latin... More

I would definitely go back, the wine for every dish was jusy perfect, enjoyed the wines! And the food was delicious, you should do a reservation cause it is kind of a private ambient.

Butterfly offers a fixed menu multi-course (5-6 courses I recall) fine dining experience. The restaurant determines the menu offering daily, but you can contact them in advance to arrange for some customization (although they had forgotten our requests, so be sure to reconfirm them immediately prior to your day of dining). The restaurant is small, formal and quaint; it's located... More

Didn't disappoint. We weren't sure where to go so we did our homework and Butterfly was an absolute delight. The staff were attentive and explained each course to us with great care and pride. Degustations do make a lovely change from having to pour over menus and listen to other diners reading their menus aloud like they're auditioning for the... More
