A large chain in Argentina I believe, but this particular one in this location very good. Great breakfasts and Evening Pizza's

My husband and I stopped here for lunch and a cold cervesa. We really enjoyed the food and the staff although English wasn't spoken were very helpful in placing an order. They exchange USD for 10 pesos/1 USD! The banks don't even touch that and charge you service fees.

It seems that Monday is not a great night to find a good restaurant in the San Telmo district. We tried a few that were closed and then went to La Continental, as it was open and I remembered seeing reviews that it was OK, but not great. Service was quick and we ordered (for two of us) just one... More

The mozzarella is amazing - simplest and best pizza in Buenos Aires. The place is a quilombo mind. But that's what Pizzerias in Buenos Aires are all about. A million people eating pizza and shouting over each other at 1am on a Tuesday night - brilliant!

The chicken empanadas are definitely the best I've tried. Pizzas are alright but nothing to be specially surprised by. Staff is always in a hurry yet really nice and keen to suggest plates.

The restaurant is one of many "La Continentals" in Buenos Aires. If you are looking for a quick opportunity for lunch or dinner, it is ok. The pizzas are ok and will fill you up, but it is a little strange, that they almost "drown" from cheese. But if you like A LOT of cheese, you will like "La Continental",... More

Great for Empanadas to go - the place itself isn't that nice. It's more a fastfood atmosphere then a charming restaurant.

They are everywhere in Buenos Aires, just like Mc Donald's. if you crave convenience try La Continental. They were nearly everywhere that we went in the city. If you want quality food there are better choices. The prices are fair for quick food. Unfortunately the quality and taste is not great.
