Tía Elvira, Ushuaia

349 Maipú
Tel: 54 2901 424725's insider take:

Tía Elvira's walls are adorned with photographs and artifacts from three decades of no-nonsense seafood served up on the Ushuaia waterfront. Current owner Oscar Sigel maintains a cheerful atmosphere, encouraging diners to roll up their sleeves as they tuck into mollusks, crustaceans, and fish freshly landed by Beagle Channel fishing smacks. A lengthy list of simply prepared seafood, including scallops, clams, squid, and two kinds of mussel (both the regular mejillón and the giant cholga variety), is crowned by the signature dish, king crab with garlic sauce.

Open Mondays through Saturdays 7 to 11 pm.
