Rick's Parrilla Review
The lighting is too bright, the decor mixes utilitarian blandness with hokey equine touches, and the waiters are gruff. But this all-you-can-eat, tenedor libre restaurant has stayed incredibly popular for a reason. The bold canary yellow building on El Calafate's main street happens to be the center of the local social scene, but everyone comes here for the meat. Prime cuts, cooked expertly, run the gamut of traditional Patagonian lamb, steak, chicken breast, morcilla blood sausage, and even obscure offal selections for more adventurous diners. A waiter asks for your favorites, and they come in waves, all for 85 pesos per person. Salads are unspectacular, but the trio of traditional sauces that come with all Argentine parrilla are top notch. Try the fancier restaurants around town if bells and whistles are a must, but you won't find better barbecue.
