Great place to go with friends. Try to sit upstairs. Any meat you may order is going to be amazing! Totally worth it.

Plenty of choice in pancake flavors, which we enjoyed with icecream, although not available as one item on the menu. Busy place. We had to wait for a table, but that's usually a good sign, especially if the customers are regulars. Unfortunately, no Crepes Suzette or anything 'flambe' either. Still quite allright. Of course they also serve a good bottle... More

Argentina is famous for its hot dogs, so how could I not try them at this place? The servings are huge, at reasonable prices. The hotdog itself was very nice. I did not need dinner after lunch here.

They sell fast food, made at Argentinian style such as Panqueque (pancakes), lomito and hamburgesas (hamburgers). But it isn't anything special. If you're hungry and see this place go ahead and eat there but don't expect something extraordinary. It's fair, although it could be cheaper.

If you go to Lo de Carltos, get the pancakes! They're not your average ones, and I enjoyed my savory one with ham and cheese. There are also sweet ones, and they are also worth a try.

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.
