Review: Afrigonia, Puerto Natales, Chile

After a very long day, setting out at 5.30am from El Calafate in Argentina and spending the day in Torres Del Paine National Park in Chile we arrived in the small town of Puerto Natales at about 10pm.  All ravenous, we headed straight out to get food and went with the hostel’s recommendation to save time searching.

Afrigonia is a small fusion restaurant owned by a Chilean/African couple which means there are some quirky elements to the menu.  The small restaurant is really cosy and has a warming atmosphere.  The menu has a decent selection and we were all very pleased with our choices.

Before the mains they bring you small warm bread dough balls with an incredible dip where the African influence is recognisable.  In addition there were crunchy corn-like snacks and plantain crisps.  For our mains we chose salmon with prawns, the rack of lamb and the steak.  The dishes are served beautifully and portion sizes good.  Two side dishes between three of us were plenty and none of us could manage desert at the end.  This was the first meal out since our last disappointing one in Argentina (as we had been cooking for ourselves) and it really was superb.  I don’t think you could be disappointed in this welcoming restaurant.
