I was hopeless to have dinner there as on their website it's written they open at 20.00 but they open at 20.30. It was worth it to wait. The fish I had was exceptionally good and tasty, and veggies too. Plus a nice view on the sea. Worth a visit when you are in puerto madryn. Moreover the waiter is... More

This was a wonderful dining experience--equal to any that we have had in large cities across the world. From the outside, Restaurante Placido appears to be a simple storefront on a main street. But, make no mistake, this is far from a neighborhood restaurant. Service was amazingly attentive, the food was delicious, the wine selection was excellent and the view... More

Stayed for 4 nights. Ate out at all the top ranked restaurants in the area. This place topped them all. Impeccable and classy service from start to finish. Everything is made in house (bread, pasta, desserts, etc.). It is listed as having "$$$$" but that is simply not true. Girlfriend and I enjoyed the complimentary homemade bread, fish, meat raviolis,... More

A great place for tasty food. Nothing inventive culinary-wise, but very well-executed for traditional dishes.

We went for dinner after having passed this restaurant during the day. It is elegant, the service is warm and personal. We were in the mood for pasta and the dishes we ordered were perfectly cooked and delicious. This is easily the best restaurant in Puerto Madryn , comparing favorably to many places in New York. I highly recommend Restaurante... More

Instead of following everyone's advice to go eat at the traditional but bland and mediocre Nautico, splurge a tiny bit and head to Plácido. Every dish we tried was extremely tasty, and the waiters willing to accommodate any request. If you have managed to adjust to dining at Argentine time and head here after eight thirty, you can enjoy the... More

Placido is on the sea front and you can have a table overlooking the sea if you arrive early/book your table. Food was amazing: fried fresh calamari were cooked perfectly and not too greasy. We had the lamb cutlets as a main: perfectly cooked and delicious. Wine list offers a wide choice of Argentinian wines across prices and producers. Overall... More

Had a dinner with a large group and we had a massive paella brought out. It was absolutely divine! Lovely place for a chic dinner.

We had a nice evening in this well located (view on the ocean) restaurant. Great food, nice staff and a very reasonable price. A real must do in Puerto Madryn!

The food is excellent. Service was prompt and good. They advise you about the perfect wines they have on stock. One negative thing. The music was to loud to my opinion.
