be really careful if you decide to visit here based off the location in trip advisor. The pictures show this location as being on the beach, however the map shows this location as inland. The map location is actually in the ghetto. Mar del Plata is mostly safe, but you don't want to walk through the slums. Trip advisor is... More

Take a Leisurely walk along the shore and head to this grand monument. It is a perfect place to stop for a coffee and snack with a gorgeous view of the ocean. Go from here to the Guemes St for a memorable stroll down its delightful row of shops

We spent a most delightful evening at the Torreon. The staff were most helpful and helped with our choices of various courses. The ambiance of the different rooms made this a very special place to visit with friends. The food was well prepared; the portions were of a good size and the service was excellent. Well worth a visit.

The Torreon is an evergreen attraction. We found the atmosphere to be wonderful. The food and Malbec wine also complemented the whole experience marvellously. The level of service was also impressive ! The wonderful waiter even took the time to explain the history of the 'monje' and attendant monks ! There are also interesting walks and vantage points surrounding the... More

We went for lunch and coffee here. Bad food all around. Also, the coffee is very bad here and not worth purchasing, despite the great view of the city and the ocean from here. Find another placer to eat and have your coffee. up and down the beach road are many places with better offerings and views that are just... More

Nice views from the sea/ beach. Arrived there around 18:30, but they were closing. The staff weren't too good. A place like that should be more flexible with the times... It was end of november, already warm, no excuses for the early closing.

At this restaurant, they do not accept credit cards or debit cards, so make sure to bring your cash. The name is Torreon del Monje ("El Torreon", in everyday conversations), but the bill/ticket says "Ariel Distribuidora Argentina de Aliment". The address, on the bill/ticket, says "Paseo de Galindes", and the street is named "Paseo Jesús de Galindez". Quite a welcome.... More

I went to a big event there on the weekend of October, 12th. The place was overcrowded and very warm. Drinks were too expensive and the place to leave your bags or coats (apart from costing $30 each object), was super bad organized-all clothes messed up in a big table-. To make things worse, that room collapsed of people who... More
