Here, king crab rules, and you'll find it on all menus, along with other excellent seafood dishes, such as sea bass and mussels. In general, dining out is much pricier here compared to the rest of the country. A dozen cafes are on San Martín, between Godoy and Rosas, all of which offer sandwiches and quick meals. The most popular among them is Tante Sara, San Martín 137 (tel. 2901/435005), where a two-course meal of salad and ravioli or gnocchi costs $8 (£5.40). A block away, the Tante Sara Café is the place to sip coffee with locals in the afternoon. A few of the hotels in the area also have fine restaurants, including Los Cauquenes (tel. 2901/441300) and Tierra de Leyendas, Calle Sin Nombre 2387, Ushuaia (tel. 2901/443565). It is wise to book ahead.
