Cabanas Las Lilas can be inconsistent. Went on 2 consecutive nights. Ordered 2 baby bifes the 1st night, both "jugoso" or medium rare. My GF's was quite well done (done on one side, medium rare on the other), mine was as ordered. Mushrooms a la provenzal were great. Next night, she had a T-bone that did come out jugoso and was tasty. My bife de chorizo was good but not as good as others I've had (and for considerably less) elsewhere in Argentina. However, the mushrooms were way oversalted the 2nd night.

As for other dining venues, we had an inclusive dinner at the Park Chateau Kempinski. The beef medallions there were just about perfect. Very tender and tasty - one of the 3 best steaks we had (Las Lilas didn't make that list).

There's a little dinner on Talcapueho (sp - same street as the Kempinski) in the Recoleta called Norte. Excellent food regardless of price. Just ARS 19 for 2 including a bottle of wine.

Mrs. USAFAN's and my steak at Las Lilas was also not very good. We did sit outside and had a nice time.
The restaurant at Alvear Palace Hotel is very good, world-class; it's a Relais & Chateaux Restaurant.
Also restaurant LOLA in Recoletta was very good.

Nueva Cocina Patagonica. Lots of meat, but not your regular beef menu - instead a lot of lamb and even some nice fish/seafood choices. The wine list is also quite good.

Service is not that great, though - the 'plate-carriers' strike again...

Another hidden gem of a place - Parilla 1880 on Defensa 1663 ? in San Telmo. Stumbled into it while walking up to the Plaza across from it.

I am staying at the Alvear and have heard good things about La Burgogne and La Cave...Since I am a snobby foodie do you recommend these?

Are there any great 5 star restaurants in the Bariloche area? Staying at Llao llao...
Thanks

There is a relatively new place called Sinclair, its located in Palermo, on the corner of Sinclair and DeMaria. The Chef is the great Ramiro Rodriguez Pardo... and the prices are unbelievable. Excellent both for lunch and dinner. For travellers thinking in Euros or US$, the prices will be a JOKE.

Please, dont miss out on this real gem...

We went to La Bourgogne, had "business lunch" ... absolutely great food! Comparable to 1-star restaurants in France.
La Cave is only open at night.
