The night we were walking by we heard live music and went in. It was folk music and I loved it. My husband not so much. But if you are into an evening of chill out music and wine and eats I'd recommend it. We did not eat, but the place is full. It appears to be very popular and... More

Very nice to see they have veg options and not just a salad or an omelet or another pasta/pizza! And tasty for a good price. There was also music entertainment.

I ordered the boneless pork and it was also very bland and overcooked. Also when we payed the check, we did not receive change back.... I guessed they assumed that they could keep... More

We asked our tour guide for a recommendation for eating in Palermo. He mentioned that most are tourist restaurants and not very authentic or necessarily good, and suggested La Paila for northern Argentinan cuisine. Being American and not able to eat so late, we were the only people in the restaurant at 7:30 on a Saturday evening. Unfortunately not being... More

I stumbled upon La Paila on a Sunday night at 11 p.m. and was thrilled to have one of the best dining experiences of my 2 weeks in Buenos Aires. The cuisine is northern Argentinean; as I'm a vegetarian, I knew I could find enough to sustain me. My appetizer, roasted Andean potatoes with herbs, was delicious, and my entree,... More

Placed in middle of Palermo Soho, La Paila offers a wide range of meals from the north of Argentina. Some of these meals are authentically from these lands because they used to be cooked before the european cuisine influence was established. Also our customers can watch and hear the folkloric live shows to enjoy our food and relax themselves with a good glass of wine from the North Provinces.

Neighbourhood Profile
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
