This is a great hotel, camping and restaurant east of Ushuaia and situated directely along the Panamericana Highway, it will be open summer and winter. The owner speaks very good english and was very helpful. There is a large carpark and a great, sunny terrace, but we prefered to sit inside the cosy restaurant that has some really great decorations !
Favorite Dish: We had a large platter of meat for 2 persons, see it in my main photo, showing my hungry brother Bernie, who cant wait to start.
When taking the fullday-tour by Catamaran from Ushuaia to Estancia Haberton a it really makes sense to order your lunch onboard so you will have enough time afterwards to explore Haberton on your own a bit after the guided tour. We had just about 35 minutes of free sparetime after the guided tour and I was glad to be able to walk to the whalebone-museum and take a look at least at the exhibits outside of it.
Favorite Dish: You will not be able to find a large menu, but you are able to get the 3-course-lunch of the day : a great soup,meat and rice and some salad and for desert you could choose between fruit-salad, icecream and a cake.
We payed 30 ARG $ for the lunch, that is about 7,50 euros, that is not bad at all and it was good ! Drinks are seperate, also for ordinary prices,and my brother Bernie highly recommends to taste the Cape Horn Beer !
In the main farmbuilding of Estancia Haberton there is a nice cafe and restaurant and the large windows of it are facing the ship-landstation and the lovely english garden. We had our lunch there, when we came by car and we were really glad to find a restaurant there at all.
Favorite Dish: We had "Haberton Soup" - a big bowl of meat- and vegetable-soup and then "the dish of the day", that tasted and looked very much like the soup, but had some rice with it as well and for desert we had "the famous Haberton chocolate-cake".
Everything was really delicious and served by some nice students, (b.t.w. the same students who also make the guided tours). They told us that this is their student-job for the summer and all of them were really excellent in english.
When you're on an island, the seafood has to be good, right? Right! We asked the locals and they said that Tia Elvira's was the best place to get it. Certainly, it is a good place for seafood and has a fine view of the cruise ships loading up on the Beagle Channel.
While the food was good, it wasn't great. I've eaten better seafood in Lima, Seoul and Baltimore. However, being that we were at the end of the earth, good but not great should be fine. I'm sure you could do worse.
Warning: at about 8:30, the restaurant starts to fill up, mainly with tourists. Apparently we weren't the only visitors to whom the locals recommended Tia Elvira.
Favorite Dish: I recommend getting something stuffed with crab, since the long-legged crabs here are the local specialty. Of course, you could just order crab, but I'm too lazy to deal with cracking open the shells to bother with that.
You can't miss this place if you go to the Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego : it's the only "bar/restaurant" here and it's a very nice place, though a little bit expensive (but, if you're hungry or thirsty, you will have no choice !). You will enjoy good coffee and tasty pastries, next to a heating that will remind you of grandpa and grandma... And... as Ushuaia is supposed to be the most southern city of the world... this is the last bar of the world !
Vous pouvez pas louper cet endroit si vous allez au Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego : c'est le seul "bar/resto" du coin et c'est bien sympa, bien qu'un peu cher (mais on a pas le choix). Le cafe est excellent et le chauffage vous rappellera des soirees chez les grands-parents... Et comme Ushuaia est censee etre la ville la plus australe... c'est donc le dernier bar du monde !
