We were actually planning to have dinner there. We were so unfortunate to come without reservation. What seemed to be initially a nice welcoming turned out to be a nice way to push us out. One of the waiters/or owners told us to come back...More

This came recommended by a Parisian friend. The entire meal was excellent - the meat especially so. We had the beef empenadas, the corn puree, the ribeye for 2, and the chocolate torte.

We were at El Palenque last night and we loved everything about it. Empanadas were home made and super fresh and the meat was delicious and perfectly cooked. Wine and service were amazing. A place I would definitely recommend.

Went here with a friend for dinner. We had a couple of entrees, grilled sausage and an avocado salad. Both were OK but pretty small for the price - two tiny sausages. The steaks were however, enormous and really good. Didn't really come with anything...More

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During

El Palenque a ouvert ses portes dans le coeur du 5eme arrondissement en 1965. A l'epoque c'etait le seul restaurant ou l'on pouvait decouvrir la gastronomie argentine.Venez decouvrir les entrees du Nord de l'Argentine empanadas, pastel de choclo, chorizos criollos. Tous ces plats sont faits maison afin de vous garantir le gout de l'authenticite. La specialite, la viande de boeuf Argentin importee fraiche et grillee sur de la braise de quebracho blanco. Naturellement pour les desserts prime toujours le dulce de leche, sous toutes ses presentations. Pour accompagner votre repas vous trouverez des vins argentins des provinces de Mendoza et de Cafayate, mais aussi quelques vins chiliens pour les plus curieux.
