Fish where meat reigns!

Although previous reviews were mixed, l find that the negative ones were too harsh. The service was good, attentive, fast and pleasant. The food arrived quickly and a discount of 10% for paying cash is applied to the bill. The menu is extensive and the food tasty. However the cost of a bottle of... read more

We happened on this restaurant. It is very large so lacks any sense of intimacy. The wait staff are very pleasant. And, the restaurant provides complimentary before and after dinner drinks..of their choice, of course. But, the quality of the food is mediocre. We had the tenderloin..overcooked, a little tough, and swimming in the sauce. And, we had a shrimp... More

Very little went well in this large and largely empty restaurant on a Sunday night. My waitress spoke no English and I no Spanish. She sought no help (in fact I got the distinct impression areas were zoned and no help would be given) and a nearby customer produced just enough English to sort out that I could eat no... More

A small group of us went for an early (by argentinian standard!) meal. The place was empty when we got in but filled fast. The menu was very, very large. My friends decided to share a paella, which I could not because of a shellfish allergy, so after much contemplation I chose lamb. Unfortunately not a good choice. Very overcooked... More

The place is large and engaging on one of the city's largest avenues, the menu is extensive with lots of fish and meat. Staff is numerous and the service is fast, efficient but completely mechanical and careless. The worst however is that the otherwise good products (lomo and swordfish were good) are treated like in a second class school canteen,... More

I have been here as I arrived late in an hotel across the street. I ordered a Salad with tuna. The salad was large, but the ingredients very cheap. As always, a salad costs more than a stake. That's can be fine, but please do not open a can of tuna drop onto some salad and a tomato, add same... More

Where do porteños go to eat when they're tired of parilla? Apparently here. It was packed on sunday, but with prompt efficient staff we were seated and served in old style. A good selection of classic Asturian/Spanish cuisine, well presented. The half portions of arroz con pollo were huge, the calamari fresh and crisply fried.

We went to Plaza Asturias on the recommendation of our host. The waitress did not speak much English, We asked for the English menu. When the bill comes, the price of each item we ordered is more than was listed. It is absolutely cheating! a 50 peso half bottle of wine becomes 65, table service becomes 35 instead of 24,... More

We were looking for fish, and that's what we got! I'd suggest you'd research what sort of fish you'd like before arriving as the menu is full of many we'd never heard of. Beware, the tuna can be very full of bones. We had excellent service, though that might be a challenge for non-Spanish speakers. The wine list was good... More

Extensive menu, decent price, good service. Never had a bad meal. Excellent vale, abundant portions. Careful seating at a window - attracted unsavory characters.....

Neighborhood Profile
Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighborhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
