This restaurant is very traditional. If you are looking for a fancy restaurant, this is not the place. But once you taste the bide de chorizo and their stuffed potatoes, you'll feel that this is the best restaurant you have ever gone! I recommend for sure!

With a name like the French Fry Palace, my expectations for lunch were very low. I was thinking along the lines of **gasp**, McDonalds with table service. Boy was I wrong! The wait staff wear classic uniforms and attend to your every need as though you are the only one in the restaurant. Linen table cloths and lovely place settings... More

After walking Florida Street for a couple of hours and knowing we would be doing a guided walking tour later in the afternoon we happened upon this wonderful restaurant. One our reasons was because they accept credit cards. Our first problem was what to order to drink (or rather what size!) Thinking I was ordering a large glass of wine... More

This place has many amazing memories for me. I first went as a child with my grandparents and have returned at least once every visit to Buenos Aires. The potatoes never disappoint. I cannot wait to share this experience with my own kids.

I ve been there few times and is definitely one of this places I will always return. The reason... the beef (bife de chorizo) is probably one of the best in town and at a very reasonable Price. The service....just acceptable and the only reason why I don t give 5 stars to this review. If you like steak and... More

Ordered a pretty simple spag-bol - not their specialty so can't be overly critical but... Pasta overcooked, not enough tomato in the sauce, whole thing an afterthought for the menu. Service efficient (most important for me) but quite unfriendly - European style. Wine excellent as usual. Liked the old school feel of the interior. Was charged twice for service, once... More

Palacio de la Papa Frita has been a BA tradition forever. Although its glory days are behind, it still delivers good quality, good service at reasonable prices. We did not expect sophisticated cuisine, just basic staples, and that's what we got: well cooked 1/2 chicken and enormous bife de lomo, both with a pile of soufflee french fries. Not Maxim... More

This has been the #1 best steak and potato experience in a city that barely seems to register the existence of greens. Be forewarned: they're not terribly nice if you're not a porteno, and a local friend warned us of that before we went. The waiters are all fairly ossified men who appear to have been there a long time... More

There wasn't anything outstanding about this place. It was just plain average. Unfortunately the service didn't match that level... but we were travelling so it worked out. The food was definitely edible and the location clean/accessible.
