The restaurant on the inside is laid out like a grocers store with produce on shelves. The food is well cooked, and tasty. The restaurant was full of locals which is testament to the quality of food and wine. Service was good and efficient. Well...More

No haute cuisine but I liked this old-fashioned, family-run place. The dining area is kitted out with green high tops & stools, and serves simple food in the heart of Palermo Soho. I loved its unassuming nature. I ate there twice. The first night I...More

Loved this place! We sat in the dining area with the green high tops & stools, a classic bodegon, good food, good unassuming service, in the heart of Palermo Soho. NOT fancy but rather simple & straight forward. You'll love the interiors, felt like we...More

We were in Palermo looking for an hamburguesa, a typical meal in Buenos Aires found everywhere. This is best I ever had, very crispy. The place is something! It looks like an old small market, with high tables. I have not seen any tourist there...More

No frills, no fanciness just laid back atmosphere and authentic food. It was all very basic but delicious and fun nevertheless!
