WE had fish and loved it. This was a welcome relief form beef which we found fatty and tough all over Argentina. Since BA is a port city, don't hesitate to eat the fish. Great octopus and calamari. They had a limited wine list but we had a great bottle of sparkling (Rutini).

We each had the salmon. The food was quite nice. Not much atmosphere. Seemed fairly expensive for what it was. First waiter had a cold attitude, you know the type. Glad we sat inside mainly because we had a different waiter, & he was kind. Would have appreciated a few potatoes or fries with the meal. Definitely will not return.

If you're looking for fish try this place. Very kind service. Nice corner terrace. You get a nice sidedish.

I love seafood so I'm especially critical when I eat seafood at restaurants. Conveniently located in the trendy Palermo neighborhood of Buenos Aires. The interior of this place is casual with a slightly upscale vibe. Look around at night and you slightly feel that you're in a mermaid colony under the water gazing up at a starry night. They start... More

Fabulous casual chic and cosy neighbourhood restaurant with attentive service and delicious food! If you need a break from the Argentinian beef dinners (as we did), check out this wonderful gem that understands fresh fish, seafood and honest down-to-earth service. Fabulous flavours with local ingredients...the way food is truly supposed to be enjoyed! Incredible value and a meal that would... More

Our hotel highly recommended this for lunch as fish only and superb! They were right! We had the two catch of the day: one pollack and one breem. It came with fresh spinach (baby): sautéed and wonderful. The service was prompt, responsive and limited in English. The place itself is charming and has high kitchen standards.

Just gt in from dinning here. First thing to know is th menu is in Spanish only. That's okay because there was one young waitress who spoke English and helped out with the menu. I ordered the risotto with shrimp it tasted okay I had to add hot sauce and salt to give it a little more flavor, they have... More

We had grilled seafood and fish. It was not a good one. I won't go back. Seafood was gummy and there are much better seafood restaurants in the city.

Really nice place with a very original decoration. The paella was really good and more then enough for 2 people (we were 3 people to eat it). The price are a little bit high but for seafood and this quality it still reasonable. I recommend it highly if you are looking for good seafood in BA!

Staying in Palermo

Neighbourhood Profile
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
