I love this place! The food portions are big, fresh, great quality of food! The ambience is more like a typical "bodegon", but is clean and it has 3 floors.

Any day of the week, from breakfast to dinner. This restaurant serve all kinds of food and they always have promotions for lunch. Food is tasty and even if the place is full, you dont wait too long to be seated and for your plate to arrive. And the portions are well served. Its like eating with the locals.

El Español was one of the few places near that was open until late. From the outside it seems like a... More

I was in BA for a week on business and was very tired of beef by the end of the week. El Española was recommended as a great seafood value. Turns out El Española is a large neighborhood restaurant that serves grilled meats, pizza, and seafood. It is located less than 4 km from where we were staying in Puerto... More
