This restaurant is in the same lot as a few other seafooders, always crowded which is a good sign, not too pricey, good experience worth the trip, then head over to the pier to see the sea lions and the shopping and view of the statue and docked fishing boats, great fotos area

Same as other visitor. It's extremely expensive for all the oil you get. We went here due to its history and name. We end up paying for 'good fish' almost 350 pesos. Not worth at all.

A very popular restaurant, an experience but not a good one if you are a visitor from the USA or Europe. A good place where lower middle class argentines flock for their fornight in January or February. Again not willing to take cards as most customers do not have one

Thinking in what to tell your friends when you return from Mar del Plata? Chichilo´s give you the perfect story, the meaning of "popular" fits perfectly to this place if you want to choose a populistic way to eat sea food... The oil spreads the most of the dishes here, but it´s ok! you´re not a fancy, cool, sophisticated traveler...... More
