“Great value”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

Ate here for breakfast 2 days whilst staying in BA. The value for what you get is really good, we payed $42 pesos p/person and got an orange juice, coffee, scrambled eggs and your choice of french toast or croissants. The staff were friendly and they even let us leave the restaurant to get money as the visa was down, trusted us to come back :)

“Awful......”
Reviewed 8 November 2012 via mobile

We popped in for lunch today and were very disappointed as this little French cafe could be something special.... We ordered pâté with a selection of cheeses, the pâté was inedible dog food and the cheese selection was not as described on the menu, no crackers, no thought and definitely no pride, the quiche was microwaved to an inch of its life, no side salad, worst meal I've had in BA and to add insult. Injury the service was slow and un attentive and the place was filthy they need to clean the walls and skirting boards its all just too grubby..... Won't be going back.

“Finally, a good place for a reasonavle price in Palermo Soho”
Reviewed 19 September 2012

After wandering around Palermo Soho and eating at not-so-good places (around flying pigeons included), we got a little lost walking and arrived at El Francés.
Just a few blocks away from Plaza Serrano, in the corner of Thames and Gorriti is this nice place.
The menu is AR$48 and you get a very, very nice salad, well served, a main, desert and a soda. We paid much more for lousy and cold food in Plaza Serrano.
The place is nice, the waiters are very kind, they offer wifi (I'm here right now) and the food is wonderful.
Definetely a good place for lunch if you are around Plaza Serrano.
