Nice restaurant with a great view near the river. You are able to order nice fresh fish in a restaurant situated at the border of the river and in sommer seasson you can sit outside, at a nice table. Service very good at convenient prices.

Good calamari and the Lenguado (sole) was the biggest I ever had and very good flavour. Not a fancy restaurant but great food and good service. The view over La Plata makes it all the more special.
