Very diverse menu,mainly meant for two people to share. There is an a la carte menu available in English. Great salad bar with a wide variety of choices. Locals flock to this place that offers reasonable prices for good,well prepared dishes.

Located in the Palermo district, this corner restaurant offers both lunch and dinner all-inclusive menus as well as a la carte. Included is a wonderful fresh salad bar with at least 30 items. We ate there once for lunch and once for dinner. The staff is very friendly. The restaurant is very family friendly as well.

Main courses are definitely generous enough to share, and they come with the serve-yourself salad bar. Actually, the term "salad-bar" doesn't do justice to the extensive range of deliciously prepared vegetables on offer eg. tabbouleh, various eggplant dishes, roasted capsicums, etc. And this is included in the price of your main course! Understandably, the place is busy with local families,... More

Great cantina with a nice salad bar and huge portions. We had sweetbreads, fried merluzza, ravioli and chicken. All were delicious. Dulce de leche pancake was just OK with a mediocre pancake.

I love everything about this place. I have gone by it several times and it is always busy so I thought I would check it out. The restaurant is very typical menu-wise for an Argentine parilla. Plenty of delicious meats from which to select. We had the bife de chorizo and papas fritas. They also have a plentiful salad bar... More

This place was packed with locals bringing the whole family, which made for good atmosphere. The food is a salad bar and a choice of mains and deserts. Price was P400 for two (including wine). An enjoyable evening

Restaurant changed management in the past year. Although dishes and general characteristics remain, I have mixed feelings as regards service and staff. The spirit of service and quality food seems to have been affected and though one can still enjoy the salad bar and the variety of food, there's need to check on quality as, for instance, the way in...

Staying in Palermo

Neighbourhood Profile
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
