A Vizcacha is a large nocturnal rodent, but don't let the name put you off. This place is packed, you will be lucky to find a table and it is listed in a lot of guidebooks. Why? They are famous for their Bife De Chorizo whicH is detailed below. They also have a large menu from grills, salads, to pastas. You can see into the kitchen and watch the large team of chefs preparing your fantastic meal. Waiters seem to glide through the small spaces between the tables. The wine menu is good and very well priced. You can have 2 great dinners, a bottle of wine and desert for less than $30. Wow.
Bife De Chorizo of course! What is in it?
* 2 thick sirloin steak (top and bottom)
* Covered with an egg
* Also: served with fried potatoes
A very hearty meal!
Have a Cabernet Sauvignon "Casillero del Diablo" from Concha Y Toro to finish off a perfect meal!
The wonderful people who work here serve your steaks on a coal fired grill - on your own table. Order a little on the rare side and just let it cook for a while on your table. Argentine restaurants have the biggest, juiciest steaks on the planet. La Estancia is probably the best steak house in Argentina. One steak is probably enough to fill up 2 people. You can watch the chefs prepare your meat and/or fish in the window and you get to enjoy their absolutely wonderful creations. It’s always busy here, but there are always tables and plenty of room. A real dinning pleasure for carnivores. La Estancia has been feeding people very well for over 50 years (since 1962).
They also serve delicious fresh salads and have a fantastic wine list. Everything is good here! Everything.
They have a great Tango & Folklore Show every night except Sunday with a set meal.

Favorite Dish: food in general is easy to get and always very tasty, you also can trust the praia vendors..if they would sell bad food, they ould sell there livelyhood..
of course some tummies are a lil tender and need time to get used to foreign food...sometimes, Imodium comes handy

I´ll try to list here some of the special foods I tried:
Fricasé (with Llama) in Bolivia
Cui (guinea pig) in Bolivia or Peru
Api (a maiz drink) in Bolivia
Ceviche (cool fish or seafood in lemon sauce) Peru
Lomo saltado (Peru) or Pique Macho (Bolivia) = beef and sausage with potatoes and onions and a hot tomato sauce
mariscos = all kind of Seafood in Peru or Chile
Pisco Sour (Peru and Chile.....they are still discussing where the drink is originally from....the Pisco is surely from Peru, there is the town and teh region of Pisco, the cocktail might be first invented in Chile.....at least Chilean have been more successfully in making the cocktail famous worldwide)
Chicha (morada) in Peru, another maiz drink, alcoholic and unalcoholic
of course bife = beef....most famous from Argentina, but there is also great beef from Bolivia or Uruguay (and more countries)
Papa a la Huancaina (Peru) potatoes with a very hot sauce based on aji amarillo, a kind of yellow chili
empanadas (Peru or Chile) or salteñas (Bolivia) = samosas, filled also with cheese or seafood, eggs, beef and vegetables
I will add more...!!
Brazilian cooking tended to involve a liberal use of salt. If you are on a low sodium diet, this might be something to think about.
Favorite Dish: Pao de Quejo (Cheese Bread) - a fantastic treat for any time of day or night.
Pasteles - delicio!
Caroline Cafe in Jardim Botanico
They have the best of everything, food, service, ambiance! Truly a very nice place to have dinner.
Favorite Dish: Everything they have is great. I eat here at least a few times while I am on vacation!
Favorite Dish: favorite food dish was the 'arepas'. It looks and is about the size of a bisquit and is made of corn. they fill it with meats, cheeses, you name it! Also they make great cheeses that you can purchase at local panaderias.
I do NOT recommend the restaurants. If you are just there on vacation, I guess the best place to eat would be in the hotels. I am guessing they would have the most sanitary conditions. Of the few restaurants I went to, we found insects fried in with our food. At one restaurant there was only one item on the menu and it was supposed to be the best tasting restaurant in the town. A friend found a toe nail in her spaghetti at another restaurant.
If you do decide to eat at the restaurants, they are relatively cheap.
Favorite Dish: Hmmmm...Fried Flies?
My favorite resturant in Ensenada was at the hotel Las Rosa's they have awesome food and the service is great!!
