Very enjoyable experience in a lovely setting overlooking the lake. Several nice touches, such as a wine and cassis appertivo. Good service, extensive menu, even high quality house wine by the glass. I had the lamb on a spit which I loved. My wife had venison stew which was pretty good. Excellent dessert. In all a very pleasant experience. I'd... More

The ambiance, and service is amazing. Even for non meat eaters they have a great selection. Everything is super tasty and prices are high.

We were 4 having lunch. The lamb ravioles, the deer steak and the squash soup were all very good. The deer was cooked in a Malbec sauce. It was very flavorful, but extremely expensive for what you got. The waiter was attentive at times.

We just had to go. Probably the most famous restaurant (other than Llao LLao) in Bariloche. Too bad we didn't see the 15% discount coupons in Sabores before we went. The quality is very good and the atmosphere is really nice. Just too much for what you get.

My plan was to go to another restaurant but then decided to stop here when I passed it. You will need a car to get here as it is quite a bi tour of town. It might even be worth taking a cab! It already started with the very friendly welcome and a drink. The menue is quite extensive and... More

Go early to start your dining experience with a drink at their big, beautiful fireplace that is in a separate room from the dining room.

We made a reservation based on the opinion of a hotel concierge. Dinner here was not a disaster, merely disappointing. The restaurant is huge with lots of decoration and native wood. We were offered a drink to start the meal in an adjacent room with delicious stuffed olives. Our table was ready, by the window, and yes there's a great... More

Visited this restaurant for dinner on December 26. The place was highly rated but the food was pretty ordinary Argentinean fare. Unfortunately, our waiter forgot to bring us one of the dishes we ordered and never bothered to apologize. We were supposed to receive complimentary glasses of champagne but he had to be reminded of this and the champagne finally... More

Now I'm not sure if my experience was/is typical of this place but I try to be as fair and accurate as I can. I know that this restaurant was very nice, high end and priced high. We stopped by because it was right next to our hotel. Both my wife and I were not impressed. Even though there didn't... More

El Patacon has a very impressive look architecturally. It looks like a big wood cabin. All the tables have a good view of the lake. Upon arrival, a complimentary wine is served before being seated. The steaks are very good but be careful how you order. They tend to be a bit overcooked unless you specify rare (jugoso is the... More
