  • A picturesque place surrounded by mountains! Small but its very attentive people. We went specifically to eat curanto! We came just to see the step by step. There is a craft fair. We craft beer, there is a raspberry-flavored!

  • A simple fair as any other, some typical foods such as the curanto and others. It is also a good family affair.

  • This place deserves a huge change. Has no real value for the tourist and ironically it's full of tourists. Even the locals advise against going.  more »

  • 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.
