Typical Italian trattoria! Food is excellent and abundant; easy to get indigestion for eating too much. Staff is highly qualified and professional. I came 3 or 4 times in a week!

We are returning to Bahia Blanca in October 2013 for the first time in 12 months and cannot wait to enjoy the Gambrinus experience. The food might not be Michelin starred, but the fare is excellent, the wine list is representive of Argentina and the service is outsanding.

If you are just dropping by the city and just have... More
