“I’m not kidding you need to get there early”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We trusted the ratings on TripAdvisor and were rewarded with a wonderful seafood meal that makes me want to return. My Spanish is limited and Juan spoke less English than I do Spanish. But between pictures in the menus and on the wall we assembled two great fish dinners and several bottles of fine Argentinian wine. I had the filet of sole with gorgonzola and it was masterful and tasty. They also have wifi like many places in Argentina.
It’s hard to imagine going to dinner in Argentina ta 8:00 PM, but at La Marina had we not been there early we would have had to wait outside. There are roughly 100 seats and by 8:45 on a weekday evening they were all filled up.
I highly recommend La Marina.

“Domestic and fresh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Fresh, domestic made, fish. The best place in Mar del Plata for people who enjoy to taste the food (fish). If you are not one of them, you can go to the massive average restaurants in the harbor area, just opposite La Marina. You'll be received with a gorgeous fish cream. Wines at nice price. You have to go early at night, tipically 8 am is the best hour. Ask the owners because, some weekdays, in high season, local mariachis are playing. Enjoy
