The got enchanted by the environment of the restaurant, and service is decent. But given the prices, we really are expecting better level of cuisine.
My friend had a the pasta daily dish for 300 pesos, and it really was nothing more than supermarket dry pasta with basic tomato concentrate. Accompanied with Oatman cheese coming in a plastic transparent container, ridiculous!
I got the shrimp dish that came with absolutely no sides. Just basic shrimps with doubts on freshness.
Then, the house takes a USD / peso rate at their advantage, 7% above market exchange price.
Big disappointment!!!

We love to come here because they prepare the best calamari rings ever. Also the seafood cazuela or the rice with seafood is exquisit, you can try the shrimps with sauce delicious!!!
For dessert try crema catalana... amazing
The staff is very friendly, specially Rodolfo the waiter.
And do not forget to by or try their exquiste panettone with a lot of almonds, nuts, pistachio and all you can imagine!!!

This seem to be owned by the same owner as Campo dei Fiori across the road. This one is Spanish/ Argentinian fair.

The service was attentive, the food is above average but I've also had better.

Entering this restaurant is like stepping back in time to old Spain. Old fashioned decor in a really nice way and first class waiters. Even the menus are shaped like a traditional Spanish Fan which was an important part of their culture.
The food is very good as is the wine.
This place focuses on seafood and I particularly recommend the octopus

A must stop in Buenos Aires. Aldophonso, our server, recommended the paella and flan. They were both delicious and freshly prepared. I don't usually eat seafood, but absolutely loved the paella and the fresh baked bread. For dessert, we were served flan, which again, I don't usually eat. It was so fresh, creamy, rich and delicious. Before we left, we purchased the sweet bread which is baked fresh daily. Make sure you don't leave without buying the sweetbread for breakfast the next day.
