the food was very good, authentic argentinian meat. althought the service was really bad. they had a problem with some table reservation and literally threw us out of the restaurant while we were still finishing our dinner. that's not the manner for a 100€ meal!

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
