  • We choose bad day. We hire a combi, thinking that they would be every day. We found everything closed. What was in business, also in the Centre of Bariloche and lowest price found. We went to walk and find a path that led us to the Lake. Just why the ride was worth.

  • Swiss immigrants settled in this place and left their mark in the gastronomy and customs. Very nice the craft fair.

  • It is a beautiful place, food and crafts are very good. There are a few places where people sell old things where you can find a few "relics". Interesting to visit and to eat trout.

  • I can not comment of the restaurant. I went with the intention of buying fresh trout live in origin thinking I was going to get a consistent price and quite the opposite. In the hatchery trout costs 100% more face than any fish of Bariloche.
