Thanks to a "local" we went to the place. All I can say is that the atmosphere is something totally different. Really authentic. As we came during the week, not crowded and so even better. Great food for ridiculously low prices. Go there, you won't...More

This simple Argentinian restaurant has usual local dishes, meat, fish and homemade pasta. I ordered Gnocchi and it was delicious although a bit soft. My friends had Cannelloni, fish and chicken, and everybody was happy. Even the price is very fare. Might be a good...More

Great ambience and environment. Very busy at 230pm on a Saturday. Plenty of options for food. Omelette was pretty good. Only downfall for me was cash only or local debit card which limited my dining options.

This is a typical "bodegon de Buenos Aires", prices are ok, food is excellent, portions are huge, and the place is just great. BUT (there is allways one), you have to book in advance. Is really crowded!

La Boca
A neighbourhood defined by its immigrant roots, La
Boca still maintains this past alive in its streets

neighbourhood became the preferred settling area for
immigrants of a wide variety of origins, who ended up
living together in the conventillos. Thus, these
houses became a melting pot of different cultures and
traditions that birthed creations like tango and
