“Authentic hang out for the locals”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

This is not a gourmet reastaurant but a simple authentic little bar and restaurant. All the locals from the neighbourhood come here in the evening for a beer and a chivito or a pizza or some asado. The pizza is not so great (compared to a thin crusted Italian pizza), but the chivito is very good. The fries so-so. So you don't go there for the extraordinary food, but you can sit at your table outside on the sidewalk, drink your beer and watch the world go by for hours. It's not the best neighbourhood in town (not at all), so there are also plenty stray dogs and not so trustworthy fellows walking the streets. Together with the local families with their kids. Also it can get loud at times with the buses going by. But you'll feel like you're sitting in a Fellini film. Life is happening all around you, good and bad. Andrea, the hard working head waitress, is the heart and soul of the business and has a smile for everyone, regular, beggar or tourist. On the way home you best get a taxi of which plenty drive by, because, as mentioned, it's not the best part of town. This little place holds the whole neighbourhood together.
