We were welcomed with bread and capsicum... More

Informal restaurant with indoor or outdoor seating. It was a holiday weekend so very busy. The fresh fish a la plancha was very well prepared and the langostino risotto was excellent, as was the caprese salad. Really efficient service. Nice atmosphere.

I ordered salmon in blue cheese sauce : it turned up completely drowned in the cheesy sauce, but weirdly enough the salmon itself was very dry on the inside.

Sea food is OK and fresh but nothing special. Staff is friendly but don't speak English. Prices are quite high for what you get.

A lot of staff that's drilled in the old fashioned way. We ordered two plates of fish traditional french style: butter sauce and gorgonzola sauce. Both delicious.

This is for the Cantina on Roca, not the Bistro on the water. We were told in no uncertain terms that the Cantina was better--for the locals, as opposed to the Bistro, which is for tourists. The wait was longer than it should have been, but once we were seated, the service was respectable. The place is clearly well-loved and... More

Huge menu. Everything is translated to English and it is very literal. Fish was fresh and tasty. Best service we had in Argentina. Go!
