We wanted to try the famous Argentinian meat and we did it at El Obrero. Food was excellent and it is not expensive. It is not close to the City center but the trip to the place is worth it.

Went on a weeknight. Great atmosphere but from a food stand point it was a disappointment. Steaks were over cooked and needed to be sent back. Sides were just ok. Noticed many locals were eating fish not meat. Prices were reasonable, portions were good. It...More

La Boca
A neighbourhood defined by its immigrant roots, La

houses became a melting pot of different cultures and
traditions that birthed creations like tango and
