The best fish I've ever ate in my life I had it there. It's not a big place, actually I was very lucky to book a place there, and I can understand why ... The best fish in the Argentinian Coast

Good food, good fish always fresh. The menu has no explanation , you need help to know what is each plate. The place is full of people, and very noisy. The service is not so good.

The location is not the best, but the inside of the restaurant is pleasant and the staff very nice. However, if you want fresh fish, go elsewhere. The fish here is frozen.

It has a good selection of fresh sea food dishes, but do not forget to take cash, as credit cards are not accepted. By all means you will have to reserve a table, because it is full every night
