Waited 40 minutes for a small cheese pizza on an evening when they were not busy. Finally gave up and left. The waiter and manager did not care.

We had just come off the airplane from an overnight flight and stopped at the closest place to our accommodations. It was a good choice. We didn't speak Spanish and the waitress didn't speak English. However they did have a menu in English so we were able to figure things out. We noticed that they did a lot of take... More

It's a very good place to eat if you're looking for big pieces of steak and home made chips. Prices are low in relation to the quality and flavour of the food. I suggest to order a plate to share cause they're really big!!! Also they include in their service as an appetiser, nuts chips garlic bread and home made... More

We stopped in mid afternoon (about 4). There were a few tables occupied. Most of the tables still had not been cleaned off from others No one greeted us, so we sat down and were eventually served. The service overall was very slow and inattentive (as another reviewer mentioned). The food was OK, but not worth returning for. We had... More

We ate a late lunch here after touring the Buenos Aires zoo. The restaurant was empty but every table was dirty, serving as a testament to ow busy this place must be during peak hours. We have limited Spanish and the menu and servers are all Spanish so we threw caution to the wind and ordered up 3 items. My... More

I've never actually been to this restaurant in person but I've ordered delivery from them several times. Everything has been excellent, tasty, huge portions, good prices and always delivered on-time. The roast chicken, empanadas, pasta (gnocchi) and salad (completa) are all very good and their flan con dulce is exceptionally good. I will definitely continue to order food from here... More

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.
