Have visited El Primo twice, with consistent results. Staff very friendly and attentive, the food is well-prepared and of good quality, plentiful selections on the menu. On this visit, we had pasta, tenderloin, water and wine - about $35 US for two. Nice.

When it came back it was dry. She also forgot to bring things,... More

We went to El Primo to eat good parilla. The experience turned out to be the worst so far in Argentina. The waiters were very rude which made our visit quite unpleasant. We went there around 8PM and the restaurant was almost empty. Taking that into consideration the service was extremely slow. It took ages for the waitress to come... More

Full disclosure - I am originally from Argentina, and my family lives a few blocks away from Las Canitas, so i've tried quite a few of the places over there. And among all of those, the one I return to most often when back home is El Primo. Why? Because the meat is great while not being overpriced, the portions... More

Had a table on the sidewalk. Second time eating here and as usual, did not disappoint. Service is quick and friendly, the street atmosphere is wonderful with all the walkers and passerby's.

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.
