Went to this gem of a spot on a sleepy evening in town. My two friends and I were looking for a proper South American steak house and this place was great. Steaks were monstrous and perfectly cooked and they had a nice assortment of side sauces you could order with them. The sides were simple and in steakhouse style... More

Amazing steaks and sides! The portion sizes were huge and the wine menu was very diverse. We each ordered the steak so I don't know how the fish was but the sauces were great accompaniment. Delicious dinner in punta arenas!

Came here to kill time before our flight back to Santiago. We ate steak earlier so came for some fish. Let me just say the portions were huge! I should've came here earlier when I was hungrier! Very affordable and great location if you are staying in the cheaper area of town.

We enjoyed this great spot in Punta Arenas with 14 people for a Birthday Party!! The owner Roberto is GREAT!! And will do whatever is necessary to make your visit a success. I ate the ribeye (steak with Italian chorizo) and it was the best I've eaten in Patagonian region!! Highly recommended. Casual dress, casual atmosphere, good vibe.

Roberto was very helpful setting up and delivering our private party of 14 people on a day that he was not even open. He brought the staff in, made very tasty recommendations for appetizers, entrees and the excellent local wines. The steaks and fish were outstanding and all members of the party were very impressed with the quality and quantity... More
