  • Beautiful, place charming. The reception with local craft beer, not to be missed. I would be a couple of days, above all to test the curanto.

  • Cologne Switzerland is a nice place to visit if are in Bariloche. It can be reached by taking the route of the chico circuit at the Bustillo 15 km. It should be an apply for gravel which is acceptable. There are options of food both restaurants and stalls at a fair. It is quite economical. There are also many craft to see. There are several campsites to stop there. Only know the campsite being, that is very good. Most distinctive is the curanto, a typical meal to make there. It is not every day but 2 times per week. I think that on Wednesdays and Saturdays. There is a beach on Lake Moreno, at the end of the main street. Is very cute. There is that walking a little to arrive, but is worth it penalty know it. At the other end of the street there is a microbrewery where guided tours are possible. Is a nice ride.

  • 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.
