A great choice for our only meal in town. Lovely friendly and comfortable restaurant, with a marvellous steak, barbequed to perfection for me and a pretty special salad for the vegetarian Mrs B.
Very reasonable price and enjoyed our visit.

This restaurant occupies a building which was built as a grain mill in 1886. A very modern glass roof encloses the courtyard and comprises the main dining room. From there you can see the enclosed grill (parrilla) where all the meat is roasted. The menu is varied and moderate in price. Live music is sometimes offered on weekend evenings.
Address: 250 Av. Gales, at Mitre st.

Trelew didn't have a great selection of restaurants, and the best value one we could find was Genesis, close to the centre of town. Its pizzas were excellent value and big enough to share, meaning you can have a meal for two for about 25 pesos. Lomitos, hamburgers and milanesas were also good value, though the service here wasn't very impressive. I guess the pesos we saved made up for that!

A fantastic, atmospheric bar/cafe, Hotel Touring Club was our favourite place for a drink in Trelew. Built in the 19th century, this plaze oozes atmosphere, and it was a great place to hide from the bad weather.
There's an old fashioned bar behind which you see bottles of all sorts. Drinks are cheap, and the surrounding walls show pictures of the many illustrious customers who've dined here, such as the famous French writer and pilot, Antoine de Sainte Expeury. The famous outlaws, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, who lived for many years in Patagonia, did allegedly say here too. A small leaflet in English explains the history of the hotel.
