A really friendly place where you can get good and fresh food based on Argentinian style. Great wines selection. Awesome selection of vegetarian dishes. And don't forget to get the organic Mate.

We happened to pass by and decided to go in and try it. We are vegetarians which can be a bit of a challenge in Paris. They had quite a few vegetarian/vegan options. We were there around 5 - between meal times. One of the...More

I'm a regular customer there! I love their meat! So juicy! Real Argentinean meat! Good empanadas, delicious panqueques con dulce de leche. The place is pretty. Nicest servers ever! Buy some alfajores in their little store before leaving!

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During
