Named for the strait on which Puerto Natales is located, Restaurant Ultima Esperanza is perhaps your last chance to try Patagonian seafood classics in a town being overrun by hip eateries. This traditional restaurant is well known for attentive, if formal service, and top-quality, typical dishes. Poached conger eel in shellfish sauce, king crab stew, and cordero are specialties—dishes served with plenty of flavor and little fuss. The room is big and impersonal, and for
this reason alone the restaurant may be losing ground to new arrivals more focused on atmosphere and comfort.
