I would describe the staff as indifferent bordering on impudent. In a nearly empty restaurant, it took ten minutes for a server to address my table. My glass of Malbec was thin and scant. Supermarket wine was better. My filet mignon was overcooked. The vegetables,...More

I was able to get good morsillo, Spanish style blood sausage, which few Yanquis will eat, and pair it with brown rice, my favorite carb. Loved the huge salad but DO NOT get the hearts of palm, they come from a can. Our vegetarian friends...More

We went twice in 3 nights. Food, service and atmosphere were all excellent. We rate this place over La Tableta due to much more attentive service. They make a great Manhattan. Also has great Spanish fries.

Great and perfectly cooked steaks; little bit on the expensive side when all is said and done but it was fully worth it. Good wine selection, too. Left fully satisfied. Will make sure to visit once more before we leave El Calafate.

You should dine at a classic parrilla at least once during your stay in Argentina. Look no further than Casimiro Bigua in El Calafate. Note: There is also another namesake restaurant in El Calafate, only steps apart, and one in Ushuaia. Seeing the lamb dangling...More

We were recommended here by our travel agent. Very harried staff in a busy place. They were a bit overwhelmed. That said, they were nice and do get an A for effort. We again had the Lamb, which was good, but not as good as...More
