Excellent food for a decent price

You can order an "executive lunch" for less than US$ 20. And they a full course, with several great options. Great for lunch.

Great place in Las Ca#itas at reasonable prices. This is not one of the new fancy places in Buenos Aires but as traditional parrillas should be, in my view. There is nothing better than Eating outside with friends here during summer.

This is in the trendy area of las canitas. The food was good, not amazing. The highlight is watching all the people eat and talk. A real cultural experience!

If you want to eat, but not being attended, wait more than an hour to have your food and get the wrong order. Then my friend, go to Parrilla El Primio.

I LOVED the hand cut pasta here. My recommendation is to order a salad, provoleta, bife de lomo and that hand cut home made pasta. Put the juicy steak on the pasta - and enjoy. The menu is standard fare found in every Argentinian place in Buenos Aires. The service on the night we were there seemed interested in us.... More

What can I say? Bad service, mediocre beef, poor value for money. On another night we had tried La Cholla right around the corner and liked it much more.

Very good Parrilla. The steak is priced right. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and is located in a neighborhood of restaurants. I highly recommend it to anyone. I ate half "bife de chorizo" with mix salad and a glass of good red wine (Trapiche Malbec).

The place is very crowded and the staff is very friendly. The food is good (but not the best in Buenos Aires).

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood 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 favorite 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.
