We were four hungry visitors and we ordered what we thought would be just enough food. Well, 4 starters and mains, lots of shots of tequila and a bottle of wine later, we rolled out of there stuffed and happy. All for $80 US total for the four of us. A real neighborhood place. No frills. Great food.

So happened upon this place after taking the ferry up to Tres Bocas from Tigre (A trip absolutely worth doing) - and it was a perfect spot for a lunch beside the river. Terrific patio space and good food - the beer was cold, the steak perfectly done and tasty, fries quite good, prices fair, service just fine - exactly... More

They do have a captive audience which obviously works in their favour, but I would recommend you eat either in El Tigre itself, or back in the city in the evening. My partner's ham & cheese omelette was fine - overly filled but tasty. My pasta was freezing cold in the middle so I sent it back. The same dish... More

It's ok, when you're hot and thirsty you are a captive so pay the prices. They weren't overly friendly when we asked to move 2 tables together out of the sun as there were 5 of us around a tiny table. Nice setting though.

The food was not very good unfortunately(at least what we ordered), but the place was so cute and romantic, we absolutely loved it. Im giving it four starts for the ambiance, staff and location. Las Tres Bocas is incredible. Its almost like you are in some jungle story book! We met the local dogs there too(Pepe was my fav!), who... More

We came to this restaurant based on the recommendation of someone in the tourism office by the boat ticket sales place and the other Trip Advisor reviews. They did not have most of the cuts of meat mentioned in those reviews however, and what we got was only adequate. We followed our server's recommendations. The pork (without a bone) was... More

We visited Tigre by train. From the train station, we made my way to the boats (water bus) and went to Tres Bocas. After getting off the boat, take the path next to the restaurant that is out of business and building that are partially completed. After the bridge, go right on the path to go to the restaurant. We... More

I traveled with a group of university students and faculty for a day trip to Tigre and the Paraná delta. We traveled by water bus to Tres Bocas for lunch and a walk along the pathways. In truth, we had expected to visit another restaurant, right on the main channel next to where the boat stops, but it had gone... More

We had already been on the water bus up the river delta to Tres Bocas on our earlier visit to Buenos Aires, and we had decided to return to try El Hornero on our last day in South America. The location by the river is excellent - the day was sunny and warm and we ate under the trees. We... More

Our private guide took us here when my husband and I visited last month. After a delightful boat ride on the public boat and taking in the sights and sounds of life on the Delta, we ended with lunch at El Hornero. We were the first customers and got undivided attention. It was nice to sit outside under the trees... More
