Where to go to eat in José Ignacio in Season 2023

Classics such as Susana en la Juanita, the Ferona Social Club and the new beach bar by Francis Mallmann are some of the must-see places in the gastronomic circuit of the most exclusive spa.

After every crisis, new opportunities arise. Although this year the Hotel Bahía Vik will not have the majority of the Argentine public, it carried out promotions and lowering rates to attract the local public. The famous chef Francis Mallman returns with a relaxed proposal in Playa Brava, ideal to spend the day, and Ferona, a classic local bar, will host small parties during the weekends where there will be dishes, art and live music.

The same as always, renewed.

those who know Susanna They already know in advance that they should go slowly, with time to taste the dishes between sea baths and drinks, wanting to enjoy a gourmet beach inn sheltered in the shade of the reeds.

La Susana is like a great house built with the best taste and decorated with works of art. It has an interior and an exterior part, on the dune. This exclusive parador is one more part of the mega project of Vik Retreats in our country.

This year, in order to win over local tourism, it was decided to adjust the menu and give benefit to national credit cards since in previous years, the national public represented only 10% of the total number of regulars.

The kitchen has been led for several years by chef Santiago Inzaurralde, who proposes working with the freshest and most local products, fusing them in a signature cuisine that uses them, paying them the tribute they deserve.

As a starter, La Susana’s menu offers a variety of seafood such as grilled baby squid, ceviche and more varied ones such as fresh ball mozzarella with mint, celery, chili, lime, onions and artichokes.

There are main dishes that are recommended by the house such as crispy and wild rice accompanied by prawns, chorizo ​​and egg. Deadly combination. Unavoidable Octopus with paprika that does not go out of style.

Within the dessert menu you can find delicacies such as the Banana and Dulce de Leche Mousse and the Chocolate Nemesis for those with a sweet tooth.

La Susana is located on Mansa Beach in Jose Ignacio, on Km 182 of Route 10. The price per diner is around $2000.

We recommend not attending in large groups and with just enough time since the protocol that governs after the covid pandemic allows fewer diners and therefore fewer waiters serving the tables. A detail that accompanies the place are the elegant bottles of alcohol gel on each table.

Vik resort


Also in the resort of La Juanita, on Playa Mansa, is the complex of 10 rooms and 15 bungalows of the Vik Bay Complex.

The Bungalows are decorated with works by contemporary artists, have large spaces with all the comforts and ocean views. The complete bathrooms with bathtub and massager are all that is needed to enjoy a good rest as a couple or as a family, since the Hotel also has 4 swimming pools, a game room equipped for the little ones and a shopping store. 

Like La Susana, the complex adjusted its rates from US $ 195 to US $ 339 per night. This rate includes the room with all the services and amenities of the complex.
