Akari Sushi Bar

Reviewed By aka_Beller - La Plata, Argentina

Small place, delicate attention, exquisite sushi. Not only for sushi lovers, here you can find a variety of japanese food; including desserts. The menu has a good variety of traditional sushi for the experts, but they serve also more "occidental" sushi. There are dishes for children and for non sushi lovers.
Prices are very good, even the wines.

Our group of 4 went to DQ for lunch after visiting the Cathedral! I had the Bife de Chorizo(maybe 300g) at103p. I was thinking about the Lomo at 110p. My wife had spinach/chicken ravioli with sauce at 92p. The other couple ordered pollo saltena at 130p & Tallarens(noodles) with sauce at 86p. We ordered a salad at 57p & service charge was [email protected] Total bill with wine/beverages was 727p. We were all very pleased & full! All customers were very decently dressed! Waiters with suits and white table clothes on tables. We did not have room for dessert, but they looked wonderful!

First let me start to say we are from Argentina. We live in Houston, however every year we go back to see family. This place is expensive everyone paid $315.00 pesos even my 10 year old. The pictures on the website aren't real! Their sushi is awful. The desserts are no unlimited is only one per person. The website advertisement is a lie. I hate when they do this!

Cerveceria Modelo

Located in La Plata since 1894, the oldest restaurant in the city serves excellent dishes at very reasonable prices. There is an extensive menu going from meats, chicken, fishes to salads and mexican food.

Reviewed By Charles J - Buenos Aires, Argentina

The reason it's always full, day and night with locals is the ambience, the food, the service. Starting with a bowl of peanuts which you shell, eta and throw the skins on the floor. Beer is ok. Not too many choices. Food varied, large portions, cooked to order. I go regularly.

restaurant del Club Atenas

Reviewed By supergather - La Plata, Argentina

This restaurant has been there for years. The Atenas Club is and old institution promoting sports in La Plata city but the restaurant came later, some time in the past. It was a good idea and more other clubs in La Plata imitated them. I had dinner there several times and my last was on December, 2016. They use to serve very good, home-brew style meals, going from pasta to asado and more sophisticated meals. Must make Reservations several days in advance. They have a parking lot, not too big. It's a little crowdy, specially on weekends or holidays, thus it becomes noisy, because it's common that people celebrate birthdays or other events, and also the families go with children. It's very familiar and a nice place to eat and drink good wines, they have a variety of very good ones. Check the social networks, you can see more there, they have a page.

Antica

Reviewed By Globetrekker12 - London

i found the best meal of my trip in this restaurant. The atmosphere was calm yet sophisticated. The service discreet and attentive. I ordered beef, which was as close to perfectly cooked as I've ever enjoyed, and then apple crepes. They arrived swimming in booze, and were totally delicious.
The only downside of the experience was the recorded music which began midway through our meal. It was not loud enough to ever be offensive but I preferred the atmosphere before it began.

Parrilla los Discos

Reviewed By Platense41 - Royal Tunbridge Wells, United Kingdom

My hotel recommended this steak house as a good place to eat meat. This place is rather small and security is tight, you really need to reserve a table. I wasn't disappointed, the steak was first quality sirloin. The wine list is excellent and divided by regions. This means wines from Salta in the north to Patagonia in the south. Prices are moderate, wifi is available and they take credit cards.
Customers tend to be upper middle class Argentines. Don't expect staff to speak English. Menu is in Spanish only so brush up your Spanish to enjoy this lovely place.

A Rienda Suelta

Reviewed By Platense41 - Royal Tunbridge Wells, United Kingdom

As a native of La Plata I was pleased to see a good steak house with high standards of cooking. We had the chorizo sausage that was superb, hardly any fat in it and cooked to perfection. We then had two sirloin steaks again very tender and succulent. If you're not a big eater I'd suggest you share the steak as at 400 grams it's a large piece of meat.
The restaurant takes MasterCard and has free wifi.
The reason I did not award 5 stars is because the wine list, although excellent, does not offer half bottles. As my companion doesn't drink alcohol I had no choice but drink a glass of house red.
The decor was simple and clean, staff friendly. Reservations online are encouraged. We went on a Friday for lunch without reservation, I presume the place can get pretty full. Not sure if there is Seating upstairs.
