What a surprise! Raining and couldn't get into restaurant. Stumbled upon el baco. Excellent food! Really well cooked by the chef at the back. You can see him! I have eaten in top restaurants across the world and this one is excellent for Argentina style food. Honestly good

If you love meat this is the place the go! I had lamb while my girlfriend had the Argentinean ribeye and we were both very pleased with our meals. Their chimicuri sauce is also amazing.

This place is a very cosy and very friendly restaurant. The menu isnt huge but i like that... nothing worse than having to choose from tonnes of options.
I had the rib eye and hubbie had the other steak. Both were very tasty, maybe not as tender as i was expecting but maybe thats normal for Argentinian steak (im no expert)!
We had wine (the wine list was very extensive) and desert. All in all the food standard was excellent, the service was second to none, and that in itself makes the meal so much more enjoyable. Well done El Balco, we will be back on our next visit to beautiful Girona!

What a find - one of the best meals we have had in years. The owner really can cook! Very authentic place and they really go out of their way for that something special . The waiter recommend a wine as our selection wasn't available. Wow it was great stuff from the region.
If you don't like meat it's not for you, but if you do take a risk and try something new you won't be disappointed.
