A Taste of Puerto Madryn

Apart from going through its beaches, watching the whales, penguins, elephant seals and sea lions, we devoted ourselves to eating. here are the guidelines of what we liked best in gourmet Puerto Madryn.

Cantina El Náutico

A classic among the classics, this restaurant is located at the top of the list in this favorite seaside resort. Ariel Bordenave and his family open the doors of one of the best known gastronomical spots in Puerto Madryn.

The unbeatable quality of its products, the expertise of its cooks and the coherence of a cuisine essentially from the sea justify the attained success.
Assisted by a troupe of expert waiters who are always attentive to the customers’ call, waiting for the desired dish does not take long. There is a varied wine menu for all tastes and pockets.

Its walls, packed with time, reflect the passing of celebrities and famous sportsmen who had a meal there. Among the most outstanding celebrities, there are the photographs of Juan Manuel Fangio, Mirtha Legrand, Mauricio Macri, Ricardo Bochini and Daniel Scioli.
It is a two-storey building with enough space to lodge 40 tables; therefore, there usually are tables available.

This time, we recommend some delicious grilled prawns. Fish and seafood are the specialty, but can also taste very good dishes prepared with red and white meat waiting to be sampled more demanding palate. To continue the line, do not hesitate to ask for a paella or seafood casserole. Servings are abundant. As a result, a second helping will not be necessary.

At dessert time, the “copa Angelito” wins the first prize. Do not hesitate in asking for it.
