food really should not be called food in this place. Is really cheap, but is not food. If you face that you are starving, go at your own risk.

Traditional place in a well located corner of downtown Mar del Plata. No luxury, very noisy, somewhat crowded, but... excellent italian food and argentinean desserts. Experience the sorrentinos (filled with cheese) with pesto. Perfect portions (for one). Dessert: flan or "budin de pan" (bread pudding), both with "dulce de leche" (milk jam). Ask for the house wine. Food comes very... More

Cheap and awful. It exists for the last 40 years. If you want to eat properly don't go here, except your budget is limited.

I joined my friends at Montecatini for dinner one night after a concert. The restaurant's atmosphere is casual and child-friendly (my friends' two-year-old accompanied us). The menu features a variety of dishes, all of which fall, more or less, within the standard repertoire of Argentine cuisine. I ordered a chicken sandwich with roasted red peppers and bacon and a side... More

Its well known in Mar del Plata that "Montecatini", is what we call a "comedero"(just-to-eat). If your budget is tight, well, go to a supermarket and buy your own food, but eating at Montecatini, or "La Jirafa Azul", or "Brasero" is for people like Homer Simpson. If you are the kind of swallower that doesn´t care about taste, hygiene and... More
