Parrilla El Refugio del montaÃ±es...de Julian
(http://www.laparrilladeju...) is at san martin 590 also called "el refugio del montaã±es". family-owned restaurant atmosphere (especially compared to the tourist-trap feel of el boliche de alberto adds to the experience. the meat is very good, you don't have to wait 2 hrs to enjoy it, and the location is conveniently on one of the main avenues in bariloche. however serving sizes are quite small and pricey ar$200 for a modest 2 person dinner with desert and no wine
Frequented by locals and travellers. The building is entirely built of Patagonian Cypress and stone. The menu pursues the idea simple but delicious, choosing top quality local products and combining creativity with refined traditions. Try great Argentinian steak: beef, pork and Patagonian lamb, trout and salmon. Neat service.
