Along with a range of traditional and contemporary cuisine, there are some of South America’s finest chocolatiers and a growing number of artisan breweries. To get you started, here’s my pick of the best food in Bariloche.

  • Taxis are cheap and abundant in Bariloche, although most of the city's restaurants can easily be reached on foot.
  • Generally the dress code is relaxed in Bariloche, although a few upmarket restaurants and bars may not allow jeans and trainers.

    Zoe S Says:

    Definitely one of Bariloche's top restaurants, Butterfly is a winning blend of elegant surroundings and world-class cuisine, perched right on the lakefront. Portion sizes are fashionable small (although impeccably presented) but with up to 8 courses available, you won't be leaving hungry!

    Zoe S Says:

    This is my top choice for a traditional 'parrilla' (grill house) in Bariloche – great service, traditional atmosphere, a good mix of locals and tourists, and a range of meat cuts cooked to perfection. Needless to say, this isn't one for vegetarians.

    Bariloche is renowned for its chocolate and there's nowhere better to indulge your sweet tooth than Mamuschka. Located right in the center of town and decked out in eye-catching scarlet, you can't miss it and chocolate lovers will find a mind-boggling range of handmade chocolates, truffles, pralines and nougats.

    Tips
    • Look out for the chocolates filled with Dulce de leche – Argentina's ubiquitous caramel.
    • During busy periods, there's a ticketing system in place – grab a ticket when you enter and by the time you've chosen what you want, you'll likely be at the front of the queue.
    • Stop for hot chocolate at the on-site cafe.

    Zoe S Says:

    One of Bariloche's most romantic options, set right on the lakeside. Most diners opt for the 7-course set menu – combining traditional Patagonia dishes, Hungarian cuisine and a choice selection of wines. The fresh, seasonal produce, homemade dressings and homegrown ingredients are what make this place special.

    Another hit with meat lovers, Alto el Fuego serves steaks so big that you probably won't even manage the side salad. It's a little pricier than your average local parrilla, but definitely worth it.
