Restaurant El Palacios del Bife is a classical Argentinean Parrilla and located in the centre of Mar del Plata. The restaurant offers South American cuisine with a focus on grill dishes. The steaks are Argentinean size. The restaurant is spacious and can handle a large...number of dining guests. Service is professional and friendly. We came on a weekday in October and the place wasn’t busy. We shared a Bife de Lomo with Salad and Fries, accompanied by a 1/2 Alamos Malbec and mineral water. The meat was tasty, the salad was OK, the fries were so-so, and the wine was acceptable. When you fancy a good steak: El Palacios is the place for you. Recommended.More

We went for a dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. Very good food and service. Wines are too young (not before 2020). A very good restaurant.

Me and my husband traveled for two weeks through Argentina, and our meal at El Palacio was the highlight of the trip! From start to finish, everything was wonderful. We started with red wine, Malbec of course, which was recommend by our waiter and was...great. We started with empanadas and provaleta which was super tasty and baked perfectly. But the thing to get is steak, steak, and more steak. The skirt steak and asado de tira were grilled with the perfect amount of char. And we shared the famed palacio steak, or tbone steak which was huge; over 2lbs! And it was melt in your month amazing. We ended with panqueque with dulce de leche which was great- not too sweet. And our waiter gave us a nice limoncello at the end of the night on the house. Thanks palacio for such a memorable meal!More

I really enjoyed this traditional family style steakhouse. The Bife Chorizo was excellent and the dining experience really very welcoming and fulfilling. Rounded it off with a Cafe Madrileno and a Limoncello and couldn't believe how modest the bill was. Best lunch in a long...time and very good value. Wish I could come here on a daily basis and indeed I think some of the diners did exactly that. Friendly staff, great food. Highly recommended it.More

Went here on a random wednesday in August so there were no long lines. Read the other reviews and they do charge 45 pesos for the bread and knowing that going in, I definitely ate my money's worth. Also the prices fluctuated. It said 240...for 1/2 plate of Asado but the bill only rang it up as 215 so that was a bonus. And they don't really do well done over there so I went with 'No rojo' and it was still closer to medium well but it tasted amazing and the portion size was pretty big for one person. Also the staff was extremely nice. They claim to not speak much English but I was able to talk to them without an issue and they even made me feel welcome going there solo. I'd definitely recommend this place.More

Most tender beef in town. They offer lots of other dishes, but the beef is so good I always end up ordering it.

We have been coming to this restaurant for 42 years and this time we were very disappointed with the quality of the steak we were served. We order a bife de chorizo (steak) and we were served a different meat and not tender. We told...the waiter and no action was taken. Not coming back.More
