This place is very popular and very good. A large menu which, of course, features beef. The main reason we go is for the Papas Fritas. Light and tasty. I convinced my wife, who doesn't eat French Fries to try them and she's a convert...More

At Lavalle Street near Avenida Corrientes, a nice place to have a good meal and drink some beers. French fries are the main food, but you can choose meat or pasta.

Beef and potatoes were tasty. The place was not crowded and the service was great. Unfortunately, the pasta was simply okay. This restaurant was accepting cash only during our visit.

Spectacular potatoes. Patented proprietary technique to make puffy , perfect , potatoe chips. Solid other dishes. Very reasonably priced entrees and wine. Great panqueque de dulce de leche.

You have to bypass the first approach of the server as it may seem a bit harsh but once your order is in for the " Menu del Palacio" you do not want to leave!! Recommended.

Have been to this restaurant many times and it never disappoints. Excellent service and prices reasonable. Food is very good. No credit cards accepted. Centrally located, couple blocks from Florida.

I traveled to Buenos Aires many times in the 70's and 80's while working for a large multinational bank. Every trip I would eat steak one day and Italian food the next. I always enjoyed El Palacio de la Papa Frita. It is a classic...More

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
