Aside from Kaupe, another fine dining experience that we had in Ushuaia was the French restaurant Chez Manu. Like Kaupe it has glorious views of the Beagle Channel being located up the hill on the road to the glacier, across from Hotel del Glaciar. As food choices go, we had to pick between centolla, the king crab (of course), fish & seafood, lamb. I didn't try the centolla, but I can really recommend the lamb. Service was very good, same goes for the wine list. A bit expensive but definitely worth the price.

To be honest I didn't expect to find in Ushuaia such a great restaurant as Kaupe. Not knowing a lot about Ushuaia before going there, I imagined it as a small town where I would get decent food but nothing on the scale of Kaupe. Up to this point in my Argentinian trip I had eaten consistently well but Kaupe was an extra kick that showed to us that haute cuisine had come south. The food was simply delicious, Kaupe would definitely make the top places in any big city like San Francisco or New York. The restaurant is located in a villa a bit up the hill from Avenida San Martin, and it has great views of the Beagle Channel. The service was outstanding, and the same goes for the wine list. It all turned out to be a great evening. We managed to get in without a reservertion but I think we were lucky because the restaurant was full. I would recommend you make a reservation. This is an expensive place, but it's definitely worth the splurge.
Note - The picture of the Beagle channel was not taken from the restaurant as that night I forgot my camera at the hotel.

I probably should have included a second picture on the previous tip, but I wanted to make sure no one misses the picture of the food. So I included a second picture here.
Favorite Dish: I had to try the lamb that I saw in the window. The waiter cut off a huge portion of lamb and put it on a large pot like oven that was brought to my table. The lamb continued cooking at my table as I ate my meal. It was the best meal I had in Ushuaia. And this is saying a lot, as I did not get any bad meals anywhere.

When the cruise boats are in the habor its almost impossible to get a seat in this restaurant. Wait until the boats are gone for the day and return for a wonderful evening meal. There is a full menu of meat, fish, salads, vegetables.
From the side window you see an entire lamb on a spit rotating around the open pit and cooking. The cook four at a time. This is the best dish in the restaurant.

Pizzeria 137 is one of the best pizza restaurants in Ushuaia, perhaps even in Argentina. It's very good value relative to other restaurants in Ushuaia and the food is of a very high quality. It's name comes from its address - 137 San Martin - on the main street. The only negative thing about this place it the speed of the service. It's incredibly slow and it felt like the waitresses would prefer to do anything except bring the food or bill. That said, if you're not in a hurry you probably won't even notice.

Seems to be mainly a carnivor's paradise but if you don't eat meat (and I don't), the fish is amazing...
A welcoming restaurant with good, attentive service. I love the waiter service in Argentine restaurants - smart, professional yet completely comfortable - and Moustacchio is a great example.
I've put n/a for price as I went when prices were very low due to the economic crisis.
Favorite Dish: Fish fillet (can't remember what it was) and boiled potatoes. Nothing more, nothing less, but absolutely perfect. I never thought such a simple and unadorned meal could be so satisfying but the freshness and flavour of the fish was second to none. Hearty and warming enough to be the perfect accompaniment to an icy cold night in Ushuaia.

My time in Ushuaia town centre was short, so I didn't stop to eat.
However, as we walked along we spotted many great looking places and we were advised that this town is particularly good for seafood.
Our catamaran trip was catered by Tante Sara and as it turns out they have several outlets in the town - the food they served on the boat was great so I imagine that their restaurants would be even better.
Prices in general are also most reasonable.
Indeed, even the architecture of some of the restaurant buildings is enough to make you salivate.
Favorite Dish: Seafood here comes highly recommended.

This is a little chocolate/coffee house on one of the main streets in town. Fun enough to walk past, but great to stop in and try. My friend and I went there to start our day off with something warm and found out 'Chocolate Breakfast'.
Favorite Dish: They serve you a cup of hot chocolate with two crepes. One crepe has chocolate sauce on it and the other is covered in deulce de leche. It's almost hard to finish it's so rich. But it is a great start for your day if you are going to be out on the windy water looking for cormorants and penguins!
