Dacal Restaurante

Reviewed By Argentine-tourist - Buenos Aires, Argentina

First of all, the name is DACAL. The service was very good, considering we were a family of four adults and a 7-month-old baby. This means there were a lot of extra requests, which were met with a smile and efficiently. The food is another story. The fish pasties (empanadas) were a bit greasy, the meat pasties were good, with a lot of filling. The grilled kidneys were just barely edible, with a strong smell of urine. The breaded fried fish was tasty. All in all, just average. It is a big place, with many tables and an annex under a tent. We did not find the place to have any kind of atmosphere. We only went once and would not return. Prices were slightly higher than in nearby riverfront restaurants.

lo de carlitos

Reviewed By Argentine-tourist - Buenos Aires, Argentina

After trying other restaurants on the riverfront, we returned to this restaurant because we felt it offered the freshest food, the best bread and crackers and a thoroughly professional service. My husband and I had dinner and, though it was crowded, we were served in reasonable time. The grilled chicken breast was tender and not overcooked, the noodles with seafood sauce were fresh and tasty. We returned for lunch with a 7-month-old baby and found truly attentive service (heating the baby food, washing the baby dish and cup). We asked for a more complete seafood sauce, including octopus, and the quality was as good as the first time. Very good breaded veal cutlet. Excellent vegetable wok. Definitely the place to eat on the riverfront. As to ambience, forget it. Basic decoration: just a mirror, dark wood tables and chairs, a strip of black fake leather over the tables instead of tablecloths. But then, you should choose this place for its food. The prices were almost the same as charged in other places. Not cheap: allow around 150 Argentine pesos for a two-course meal per person.

Frente Al Río Sobre La Costanera De Gualeguaychu

Reviewed By David R - Montevideo, Uruguay

The plastic tablecloths and poor decoration should have been sufficient warning of what we were about to receive. Soft drinks sold in small bottles yet charged at medium sized prices and a selection of stale bread reinforced that sensation of impending doom. It was no surprise that the best cut of Argentine beef was not available, and the ordinary pulpon was recommended as the best alternative. I have to be fair, the "spanish fried potatoes" were oily but edible whilst warm, and the lettuce was green. But, after 25 years living in the River Plate area the strips of greasy burned meat that were cooked by a professional were by far the worst that I have seen. I was so hungry that I crunched my way through as much as I could, avoiding the realy hard greasy parts. A few hours later the laxative powers of the meat took effect. There are a few decent restuarants nearby to choose from. I would suggest trying any of them before going to this one. Stay away!!

Pizzeria Piamonte

Reviewed By Thelastdodo2 - London, United Kingdom

This place was totally dead when we arrived at 8.30 pm on a week day in low season, but did get a few more customers later. The service was very friendly and efficient; they didn't have the necessary ingredients for the salad I ordered but basically allowed me to make up my own, choosing from all the ingredients they did have! The salad was great, but the pizza not amazing. Like a lot of Argentinian pizza places, the base was really thick and bready (twice as thick as you'd expect!), and there was very little tomato on it. We asked for not much cheese, which worked well - often we find pizzas here a bit overkill with the cheese! The wine we ordered was also not great. They only do pizzas and salads, no pastas. It's okay, but nothing special.

Terraza

Reviewed By Verito70 - Buenos Aires, Argentina

The place has a really nice river's view. We tried the 'picada' which was really good. The prices are appropriate, not expensive at all and all the food looks really great.
The only thing is that the waiters are a bit overwhelmed so service might be a bit slow.

La Paisanita

Reviewed By Rachel C - London, United Kingdom

The menu offers quite a wide range of grilled meats and fish. The portions are generous and our food was nicely cooked. We asked for the steak to be juicy and it didn't come over-cooked. The list of wines is limited and they don't do wine by the glass, but the house wine in half bottles is ok and not expensive. The service is friendly and the atmosphere lively. It's well worth walking away from the (often over-crowded?) Costanera to find this gem.

En el viaje hacia el norte por ruta 14 hay que hacer una pausa obligada, mas que nada si estamos cerca del horario de almuerzo. Un sanguche de bondiola o salame y queso exquisitos. También hay todo tipo de dulces, quesos y fiambres. El trato excelente
