A great place to experience local barbecue, away from the touristy areas at very reasonable prices and great quality cooked to perfection. Free empanadas to start were delicious. We arrived at 8.30pm on a Wednesday night and were seated immediately. With a mixed salad our...More

This place is fantastic; it doesn’t look like much from the outside, but the food is unreal. It’s full of locals and the tables are squashed together, but it has a great atmosphere. Our waiter really made an effort, despite our limited Spanish. You get...More

Went today for lunch. Great quality meats. I enjoyed great matambrito (pork), morcilla (blood sausage), entrance (skirt steak) and their amazing beef empanadas. For dessert: flan con dulce de leche. Friendly and caring service with unbeatable price for the quality. Don't hesitate and visit!!!!

After a recommendation from our tour guide we decided to dine here and we were not disappointed. A lot of locals eat here and the place has a lovely honest charm to it with no frills. They give you a complimentary empanada and bread basket...More

We had seen several Youtube videos featuring Parilla Pena and decided to visit on our first day in BA. We managed to arrive just before its 8pm dinner service (locals eat dinner quite late!) and we were glad we did. Though we weren't the first...More

Nice restaurant, casual with good steaks (of course its Buenos Aires) and happy friendly service. The waiters were really nice and I love the way they shake your hand as you are leaving as though you are already a friend.

Parrilla Pena looks like it's been around forever. Situated on a busy shaded street in a mature neighborhood, the first thing you notice entering is the large grill on your left. Right up front for all to see. Salad, beef, Malbec makes a fantastic combo....More

It has a family restaurant vibe. We went twice and loved it, the service is extremely fast. The empanadas are to die for.

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes
