Best South American restaurants nearby. Discover the best South American food in El Calafate. View Menus, Photos and Reviews for South American restaurants near you.. Building on its must-visit location, the once-tiny El Calafate has grown quickly to cater to and profit from the visitors to nearby Los Glaciares National Park. Many visit to see such natural wonders as Perito Moreno Glacier, a massive glacier that’s actually composed of many other pieces of shifting ice. Yet travelers will find that El Calafate is much more than merely a gateway to the Patagonian wild—it’s a fun town offering all sorts of outdoor adventures.

Feared after having a great meal the first night that it wouldn't live out to expectations especially as is a 10 minute walk out of town. Pleasant surprised and if you lucky get a window seat with views of the city. Great value and staff were accommodating, we felt at home that we finished on J &B (whiskeys)

Open from the 15th October to Easter Sunday inclusive. Get ready to please with our regional dishes. Our specialty is "Palo" Lamb.

Reviewed By Richard W

This is the restaurant of the hotel Posada Los Alamos, which lies two blocks north of the main street. It is quite large, and, in addition to an excellent breakfast buffet for guests, it offers a good choice of Patagonian dishes for dinner. We had the lamb barbecue, which is cooked the traditional way on spits hung above a log fire. It was delicious, although the portions were huge. Service was friendly and attentive.

Gabo is an incredible host. Not only was the food incredible, from the Zucchini soup, to the roasted lamb, but it was such a unique experience to sit at a table with people from all over the world and catch up like old friends. After dinner I stayed and chatted with Gabo for a few hours over some delicious Malbec - something I will never forget. Cannot recommend this enough, an absolute must-do when in Calafate.Thank you so much Justin! it was one of best chat ever, see you in L.A., Gabo

We were lucky as we were the only guests during our diner. The service was excellent and the owner was very friendly. We had a great lamb and steak with a marvelous wine. Also very good price if you look at the quality of food, wine and service. A beautiful view on Lago Argentina. We came back the next evening!

During our four days stay, we had dinner here for the last two nights. Pity we found out too late about this wonderful surprise near our hotel (Los Álamos). Charming little family-run local place, friendly service, great (authentic) menu, and in the kitchen a modern cook with a creative approach on (traditional) dishes. We enjoyed it a lot, so therefore, highly recommended. Loved their desserts. Mind you, closed during low season. Try it, I know you will enjoy it. Both of you are lovely!!! We remember that you ordered the same food both days enthusiastic... Thank you for your warmth!!!

We were recommended this place by our hotel as we were looking for somewhere with decent craft beer, it didn't disappoint, there were only two options but both were excellent.We were not expecting the food to be anything special but were pleasantly surprised when it arrived the piadina's are absolutely delicious and a must, they are kind of like a cross between a sandwich and a pizza, perfect pairing for the beer.

Además de los eventos culturales que es la razón casi de existir de ese lugar la comida es excelente. Ambiente de sensación íntima. Con diseño único y cuidado . Para volver mil veces. Fui en dos ocasiones para una milonga y para un concierto con un pintor en vivo. Otros eventos no me motivaron. Eran para un público muy acotado. Lo recomiendo para ir . La vista que tiene también es una maravilla.
