Extremely friendly staff!! This is a traditional Irish pub with great beer and atmosphere and very good tables to dine at. The menu is good and the the food is tasty. Try the Argentine version of Guinness - really good brew! A lovely haven to have a lunchtime drink and lunch!

We were here on March 17th (Paddy's Day) and were very much underwhelmed - and we're Irish.
Very dark pub with no Irish staff - very much a standard 'plastic paddy' pub.

Went here with my brother on a week night. The place was almost empty.
We sat on a table and waited forever for service, so I had to go to the bar and order.
The waiter looked like he wasn't pleased to see us and was in a bad mood; the service we received was awful.
We ordered a cold cuts board and we weren't even handed fork and knife to eat, so I had to go back to the bar and ask for them.
The only thing that wasn't bad about this place was the beer; but I really wouldn't come back here again: try a better bar in the area like Downtown Matias.

Staff were unbelievably rude and consistently tried to serve pints that were sitting by the tap when we arrived. If the pub was busy, this would be understandable but there were only about 20 people there.

We went here hoping they would have Guinness based on past reviews. There was none, as seems to be the pattern in all of South America. They do have a Celtic Stout beer that does an amazing job of imitating Guinness. We would highly recommend if you are looking for a good stout. We just got pub food and it was also good but can't comment on the actual food.

Well I have never been to a real Irish pub, but this was fun nonetheless! Came here on a Thursday night and it was packed, but super fun. Seemed lots of people come to this bar/are right after work, which was pretty cool since a lot of bars I went to in BA seemed like mostly tourists (I was staying in Palermo). They had a really delicious stout beer and bar food as well. Definitely recommend for a any night of the week!

It's in big bar designed to look like an Irish pub. They do have Guinness but it's pricey. Just about everything here is expensive. The main problem is every single night the music is blaring and it ruins the atmosphere. The food is decent enough but again it's not a great value.

Went tonight-Friday night from 6-9 this place is packed. The music was blaring loud inside, so went to table outside. Found one with 2 menus on it & sat down. The waitress comes up & grabs one of menus without even speaking to us & brings it to another table. We are left with one menu & she never comes back so we left after a few minutes🤔won’t be back.

Variety of beers on tap, and a large whiskey selection. Wine menu was substantial as well. Quite popular during BA lunch two hours with a cross section burger eaters and full lunch types with wine. More than “ pub food “ available but less than “ fine dining “. Chicken-breast burger very filling. Service was rapid. Credit cards accepted ( see the door - not always the case in BA so don’t get caught out ).
