Favorite restaurant in Bahia Blanca, Service is slow ( standard for the area) but the food is fairly decent as are the prices. Good staff also.

Very nice restaurant, with initial German founder but with the great blend of a later take over by a Spanish owner. Established in the late 19 century is a traditional place in the city. A must visit place for good living pleople when coming to Bahia blanca.

We were here for lunch. As starters we had the chicken "escuveche" and the squid. Both OK, but the squid clearly better than the chicken. I will order that again. Then for main we had the cooked ham with sauerkraut. The ham was delicious, the sauerkraut was good (but luke warm instead of cooking hot), the potato salad was cold... More

Black raviolio for my husband and I had a pork dish. DELICIOUS. Attentive service; we do speak Spanish well enough to... More

Typical Italian trattoria! Food is excellent and abundant; easy to get indigestion for eating too much. Staff is highly qualified and professional. I came 3 or 4 times in a week!

We are returning to Bahia Blanca in October 2013 for the first time in 12 months and cannot wait to enjoy the Gambrinus experience. The food might not be Michelin starred, but the fare is excellent, the wine list is representive of Argentina and the service is outsanding.
