Very nice to see they have veg options and not just a salad or an omelet or another pasta/pizza! And tasty for a good price. There was also music entertainment.

I stumbled upon La Paila on a Sunday night at 11 p.m. and was thrilled to have one of the best dining experiences of my 2 weeks in Buenos Aires. The cuisine is northern Argentinean; as I'm a vegetarian, I knew I could find enough...More

locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de

Placed in middle of Palermo Soho, La Paila offers a wide range of meals from the north of Argentina. Some of these meals are authentically from these lands because they used to be cooked before the european cuisine influence was established. Also our customers can watch and hear the folkloric live shows to enjoy our food and relax themselves with a good glass of wine from the North Provinces.
