Mariscos del Atlantico

Reviewed By UndercoverExpat - Shenzhen, China

Agree with you all. Good seafood and good to know it is artisan fished by this family. And not a charming location nor a special occasion interior.
Friendly to solo diners arriving for a late lunch, with my choice of small tables and wine by the glass.
Not all on the plate is sea fresh - probably some from frozen but that is to be expected to maintain the variety on a cooked seafood platter. Also excellent complimentary baguette and seafood pate.
Good value for 170 pesos

Cantina El Nautico

Reviewed By 523paulot - Lisbon, Portugal

The food is great, specially if you like seafood! Good and efficient service and staff. Right in the center of Puerto Madryn.
Just one remark: to be perfect, the air extraction should be improved. You get just a bit smelly.
All the rest is 5 stars!

EL ALMENDRO RESTAURANTE

Pequeño restaurant atendido por sus dueños,instalado en una Antigua casa,donde se preparan platos artesanales con productos locales de estacion.Acompañados por una amplia variedad de vinos incluidas varias Bodegas Patagonicas

Reviewed By luca r - Como, Italy

This small restaurant is 15/20 minutes by walk away from the Ocean front crowd.
The location is very nice, and as soon as you enter the lovely owner offers you a glass of very good wine ( in our case it was a sparkling rose').
The owner and the only waitress were very nice and helpful, but the food was not as good as we were expecting Reading all the good reviews on tripadvisor.
My octopus was ok, although the paprika cover was burned in some points. The meat was also ok.
If we had stayed more time we would have probably given another try, but tempus fugit, and after a couple of days in Puerto Madryn we were heading to a new destination in Patagonia

La Estacion

Guys only staff. Having a lot of fun with each other, but a bit too much. Could be more professional, focussing on the customer. Food is ok, but nothing special. They charge €7 for a side dish of fries or rice which is clearly overpriced. It's not too bad, just don't expect anything.

Pirque

Just 10 minutes from El Bolson, on route 40 to Esquel, in Km 1903, we are located on a hill with a very special panoramic view, surrounded by Mountains, productive farms, vineyards and lagoons. Bird watching. Our products are made with raw materials from the area, trout and perch, meats, fondue with patagonian handmade cheeses, vegetables from family Gardens, homemade pasta and desserts ... Do not forget to try the renowned Strudel, Omi recipe, And the best fine fruits in various desserts. The best cafe and very good music. 30 Years of experience guarantee our service.

Reviewed By N A - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

We went to Pirque twice while visiting El Bolson, and loved the food, the atmosphere and the stunning view. Rave reviews for a few of the trout dishes and the pork and the spinach crepes for dinner; the crepe with mixed berry sauce for dessert was phenomenal, and the chocolate mousse-like dessert was sublime. The owners are warm and generous. We were the only guests one night, and one of 3 another, so this is a "best-kept secret" that deserves to be discovered. Ask for the table by the picture window, if it's available.

Reviewed By raobert - Namur, Belgium

Went there for dinner and was happily surprised by the nice restaurant setting and excellent menu offered to the guests.
The winelist is more than adequate and service is at the highest professional level, but nothing obsequious.
The food turned out to be first class and the freshness of the products is top level.

We stayed for a few days in Esquel with our friends and on one occasion we caught the local bus from there to Trevelin to visit this little Welsh migrant village. Maggie's was in the Lonely Planet so we thought we would visit for some high tea! Excellent choice and made our afternoon visit a well entrenched memory. Thanks

Giuseppe pizza y pastas

Excelente Lugar Para Comer Pastas Y Pizzas , No Hace Muchos Meses Que Inauguro Tengo Fotos Ubicado En La Calle Paralela A La Costanera

Reviewed By TLV-Traveler - Tel Aviv

While opinions vary, Italian food in Argentina isn’t good. It’s a very pale comparison to the original, and if you actually like real Italian food you will disappointed. Quality, however, varies quite a lot. We had Argentinian-Italian food which were barely edible (or not at all), and some that were better, though still miles away from anything you can refer to as Italian food. Giuseppe is one of the latter group.
First, they mean well. They actually try to make good food, and they don’t cater only to tourists. Real locals eat here with their families, and this is always a great sign.
Second, they actually try to make pasta the way it should be made. It isn’t particularly good, nor it is even close to al dente, but it’s ok. We tasted a few kinds of Raviolis stuffed with cheese and Penne Rigate with Arrabiata sauce. Everything was ok, but in a place which is a culinary disaster such as Puerto Madryn, ok can be a great thing. If you are in the neighborhood and are trying to avoid the tourist traps, I’d give it a shot :)

Don Chiquino

Reviewed By trona37 - Scotland

On holiday in Argentina for a month and fancied a break from parillas which we love. Decided pasta would fit the bill and this place seemed popular with locals. We had the starter of smoked deer, boar, trout and cheese which was good. Unfortunately while still finishing this, the mains arrived. I could possibly have forgiven their premature arrival had they been any good, but what a disappointment. I had the cannelloni with bolognese, cheese and pesto sauce. Pasta was bland and soggy, overstuffed with a very dry cheese. Bolognese sauce was tasteless. I have tasted better supermarket ready meals! My husband had lasagne and this was equally bad. A decent wine list was the only saving grace. And they only accept cash, no cards.
