I expected more since I saw a good grade of the restaurant here. I guess I should've read the last review which advised not to order a salad, which was exactly what I did - and regretted. The empanada was good, though. My husband ate...More

A local resto on the street aside all the hustle and bustle of the buskers and trinkets sellers. Beer is cold and if you want to watch the world go by it’s fun. Stay away from salads. The chorizo was good. Empanadas ok.

What makes for this restaurant is really the tango happening while you’re eating. Sitting outside is nice, but if you sit inside you get a full private tango dance next to your table. I recommend ordering the bife de chorizo for one. It’s delicious and...More

We stopped here after attending a walking tour of La Boca. We were hot and tired. We stopped here because the guy seemed nice. We had the La Barrica plate share. This plate had 4 very tender pieces of beef with bacon and Madeira sauce....More

Everything in La Boca is touristy, but this little place located right on the corner of everything and everything offers very tasty sandwiches and a non-stop tango show. What more do you need? If you're hungry in La Boca, stop by this place for surprisingly...More

The tango was fun to watch but the food was average and the service was spotty. 3.5/5 stars, I would recommend if you have to eat in the area

La Boca
A neighborhood defined by its immigrant roots, La Boca
still maintains this past alive in its streets today.
Due to its proximity to the river, the neighborhood
became the preferred settling area for immigrants of a
wide variety of origins, who ended up living together
in the conventillos. Thus, these houses became a
melting pot of different cultures and traditions that
birthed creations like tango and lunfardo. Nowadays,
