Homemade food, lots of argentinian guisos, as osobuco, lamb,pork. Option of lamb burger, pasta, salads and small appetizers as fried calamari. To start with white hoy wine with cinnamon and pepper...delicious for a winter dinner! Funny service with tiles as regular dishes...

I have been there at least 15 times. Always the food was really good (I've tasted almost half of the menu). It's a really simple menu but really nice as well. Perfect drinks and the it's a really budget place to go.

I had been eating amazing steak my entire time in Argentina, so my pallet was on high expectations going in to this locally recommended restaurant, which, I'll be honest, was a few blocks past my level of comfort, and the walk there alone made me a little uneasy. I Immediately ordered the house "vino tinto" (red wine), and asked what... More

Nice setting with old vinyl LPs on the wall and various old cooking implements like pasta makers etc. Friendly staff even if they did not speak any English. Food was tasty and well prepared. Good house red. Reasonable price. A good evening all around. We got there after 9 pm but locals kept arriving even until we left after 11.... More

Old house seted-up as a restaurant. The place is ok, every wall is covered by at least 20 years old posters, toys, papers and even pictures on frames. Food is just ok, in most of the cases the explanation in the menu were quite extensive, but when the plate is over the table it is really more simple, and not... More

We were the only foreigners present and the menu isn't in English, so we loved the authenticity. Food was good and fairly priced. I had the lomo (excellent) and my wife had the vegetarian croquets which were just so-so. Limited wine choice. Our waiter spoke just enough English to help with our faltering Spanish. Nice atmosphere with old vinyl records... More

Waited 30 minutes for a table (Us Brits not used to that!) but well worth it. Traditional Argentinean cuisine, nothing special, nevertheless tasty and enjoyable. Delicious bread came with an odd dip of lentils....different, but delightful. Service was excellent. Portions were HUGE...I had the Argentinean idea of Osso Buco, cooked slowly for 5 hours, superb! But could only eat half... More

We had a great time; they have a big area with large tables. The food was average; I got a steak and it was not better than other places in the city. Not very expensive, and very nicely decorated, but don't expect the best food.

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.
