Argentine in Zapala


A laid-back kind of place serving some of Zapala's best food (it's not much of a horse race, though). The menu doesn't stray far from meat, pizza and pasta, but they do it well, and with friendly service.
Cafe in Zapala

El Chancho Rengo

It’s likely half the town saunters in here for an espresso every day. Good coffee and sandwiches make it great for a light bite.
