Various gastronomic choices are offered by El Calafate, from very regional flavors to European cuisine. Here we recommend some representative alternatives for you to enjoy.
As the city grows, the gourmet alternatives diversify. Betting on the great affluence of foreign tourism, they combine the good Patagonian menus with Mediterranean proposals and flavors.
It is not by chance that most of the restaurants I visited were managed by young chefs. Some from the Patagonia, others from Buenos Aires, all of them with European background and in the mood of showing their skills in this austral nook.
This makes that new versions result from culinary and alchemy training be added to the traditional Patagonian dishes, such as lamb.
Barricas de Enopio
A typical southern restaurant combining an excellent wine cellar and a menu of traditional Patagonian delicacies.
Decorated in wood and stone in the best Andean style, jazz and bossa-nova always create a cozy and relaxing atmosphere.
