Black raviolio for my husband and I had a pork dish. DELICIOUS. Attentive service; we do speak Spanish well enough to... More

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.

Good meals (pasta, fish, meats, etc.), fair prices, very old style place. Prove Don Pedro, it is a tipical argentinean's dessert which has ice cream and whisky. If you are just dropping by the city and just have... More
