La Cueva restaurant is one of the most exclusive and adventurous, if not exactly eco-friendly, dining experiences you can have in Bariloche.

As its name suggests, ‘The Cave,’ is set inside the belly of a mountain — Princess Peak, which sits seven kilometers from the base of Cerro Catedral ski resort.

Getting To La Cueva is Half the Adventure

This 17-seat ‘destination dining’ spot, surrounded by Lenga Beech forest, can only be reached by snowmobile in the winter or quad bike in the summer. Kids can go to, but they ride on the back.

The cozy alpine interior of La Cueva lends itself to kicking things off with a glass of champagne and cheese fondue by the fireplace.

Patagonian Cuisine

The smells of traditional Patagonic dishes prepared in an old style wood stove permeate the whole restaurant.

Some popular entrees are salmon canapés; chicken stuffed with smoked ham, apples and curried tomatoes; lamb sauteed in Malbec and forest berries; and beef tenderloin marinated in Dijon mustard and honey. On some nights there is live music and dancing.

A unique dining experience that combines adventure and gourmet cuisine, La Cueva is probably the only restaurant in Bariloche that recommends diners have travel insurance.
