Review of El Vulcano

El Vulcano
Ranked #1,540 of 5,047 Restaurants in Buenos Aires
Cuisines: Argentinian, Italian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 10 September 2016 via mobile

Was here in April but you could not get in. Now it has been given an update. Lunch is mainly executive fixed menus for local office workers. At night the parrilla gets fired and Vulcano comes into its own.
Went in without a reservation on a Friday night, I was found a table but you should. Make a reservation. It's very popular with middle class Argentines and office workers having a meal at end of working week. I'd would have liked to see cloth napkins as standard but they do bring you one if you ask.
I had chorizo and bife de chorizo (sirloin) and both were very good. A good selection of wines and useful if you're solo 375 cal bottles of their best wines.
Vulcano has been a restaurant of sorts sine 1930...hope it may continue for many more years.
Well worth a visit.

Thank Ralph T

Newspaper cuttings suggest there has been a restaurant in this corner since the early 1900's.
Today it has been modernised inside, with wifi and air con available.
They serve good quality meat and some traditional argentine dishes. At lunch you see lots of managers and middle ranking executives from the nearby offices enjoying the executive menu which is exceptionally good value for money.
It's a pity that tourists don't walk a little over half a mile from Dorrego Sq. in San Telmo to enjoy good food and cheaper prices. Just take Bolivar street and walk underneath the viaduct and you'll find Vulcano about half a mile down the street. Vulcano accepts credit and debit cards. On your way you'll pass a number of excellent restaurants in an area that's becoming very hip without being over run by cheap chains.
