We love it

We had a meal at Chona and it was very good. You have a lot of choice of what you want to eat. There's a big menu. The price's are reasonable. The service was friendly and quick. And that is a good point because the place was full and still we had a perfect service. We would recommend to go... read more

We were looking for a good pizza and this restaurant seemed quite good. I think we made a mistake. The pizza had no taste, the waiter was average and the good thing I remember is that the beer was excellent and very cold.

Chona seems to be more like a typical tourist place. Portions are huge, the quality quite mediocre. We had fish and squid. The restaurant was actually recommended to us as a pizza place but somebody on the next table had pizza and it looked pretty bad. I would say this restaurant is OK if you are hungry but don't expect... More

The steak and seafood is as good as it gets, in my opinion. Even when they are super busy, the service and quality is top shelf.

The service was friendly at the beginning. The food was the worst experience we had so far in Argentina. We shared a beef carpaccio as starter, the cut was ways too thick and it was also out of the freezer because of all the water in it. My girlfriend had chili prawns, they were ok but the side dish was... More

Our dinner wasn't a good experience. We found a nice place and kind service but had to wait more than 1 hour to get our courses. The restaurant was full, it was true, but you shouldn't have more table than what you are able to manage. My food was just fair (merluza chona made with a different merluza since the... More

A friend and I walked from the port along the seafront and thought 'Chona' looked a nice place for lunch. We ate outside and were not disappointed. We only wanted one course, so my friend ordered fried calamari with salad. It was on the menu as a starter but was a huge portion of which she only managed to eat... More
