We went here for dinner twice during our stay in Buenos Aires. It was a popular restaurant and it could get very busy in the evening.
We were here for the ceviche and were not disappointed. For first timers, we recommend ordering the degustacion de ceviches so that you could try different kinds of ceviches. It was great for sharing and there was more than enough for the two of us. When we went back the second time, we just ordered the simple ceviche. The ceviches were delicious. We also tried the fried rice with chicken. It was good and the portion was generous.
The staff was friendly and the service was efficient. The prices were very reasonable. It was a good spot for a casual dinner.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant very near by and asked us not to be dissuaded by the appearance. The first time we tried to go there was at least a half hour wait, so waited a few days and arrived around 8:30 in time to get one of the last tables. Specializing in Peruvian cuisine and especially seafood, this tiny place did not disappoint. We were treated to excellent service, did not feel rushed in spite of the line up outside and enjoyed a meaty, flavourful mussel appetiser, a langostino cheese dish, and a fish filet with seafood sauce, all tempered with an ok and inexpensive white wine.
We will be back to try their amazing looking ceviche.

A great little cafe for a lunch if visiting Palacio Barolo, it’s literally at it’s backdoor. We probably wouldn’t have gone if our hotel hadn’t recommended it but we weren’t disappointed. Great value food, we kept to traditional Peruvian - ceviche & tiradito, fresh & spicy. Good service, cash only......

I enjoyed the flavors, but the rabbit was a bit dry for me. Other than the dryness, the food was very good. The service was friendly and attentive.

We like to find interesting places off the tourist path that locals frequent and this restaurant fit the bill perfectly. Packed with locals on a Tuesday night. Tasty chaufa dishes and massive portions, very reasonably priced. Could have ordered one between us. Our waiter was from Peru and lovely. Right around the corner from our hotel so super convenient too. Highly recommend!
