$$$$ San Martin de los Andes Argentine

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

This may be the friendliest parrilla in Patagonia: cooks, waiters, and even the owners scurry about with sizzling meats from the grill and fresh steaming pasta with various sauces. By 2 pm the tables are filled with chatty locals. Pine racks around the dining room display a good selection of Argentina wines, and you can watch three or more Patagonian lambs being slowly roasted a la cruz (on the cross) in the streetside window.
