We went to el Palenque because it had good reviews and upon looking in it seemed very nice. The atmosphere and the interior actually are very cosy, with wood and old cartels, especially on a cold night. The food though was disappointing. We both ordered...More

This is a casual pub-style restaurant where you can get a good meal for a good price. The empanadas where nice and the traditional Argentinian salad simple, but fresh and tasty. We shared this with a crumbed, schnitzel style beef accompanied by mashed potato, which...More

Our tour guide recommended we tried the empanadas on this place, and they didn't disappoint. Located in a very nigh life area, perfect place to eat and then hop on to other bars up and down the street.

I was here just for drinks. They have Patagonia beer on tap. This was actually pretty good. I went during happy hour so 2 beers cost me 100 pesos. The food was also reasonably priced.
