    We ate very well and made the journey in the Kennel that is on the Lake. Place is clean. Cordial attention. Selling smoked trout and others. Lunch of trout and recommendable walk.

    A unique experience, both flavors and learning. The place is simple and familiar. The venue is on the Lake, and is beautiful. The food is very good, especially the smoked trout! Guided by the Kennel is great. Just missing a little more ambient music, and posters advertising the place out, since this quite hidden. Highly recommended!

    The warmth of the people makes you feel at home, fresh, abundant and very rich dish. It includes a guided visit to the Kennel where continues the willingness to the visitor. The price is right.

    Excellent service and friendly, excellent presentation and preparation of the house specialty: trout. Any of its varieties is offered with dessert included excellent price and you can choose between two desserts really homemade. The guided visit to the Kennel is also included. A cozy place, overlooking the Lake and excellent treatment that invites you to not forget them and return

Where to stay in San Carlos de Bariloche

Despite an abundance of economical lodgings, most budget-friendly options in Bariloche get fully booked well before the start of peak season. Hotels charge the highest rates during popular ski months (July and August), when you're least likely to find a cozy room without a reservation. Mid-range hotels near the town center remain the best option for most tourists, offering car rental and tour arrangements along with the usual amenities like free Wi-Fi, cable TV, and laundry service.
