Maybe it was just bad luck but for me, it was an awful experience.
To start with, I had to wait around 50 minutes to get a table.
Due to the good reviews in TA, I decided to wait thinking it was gonna be worthy.
What a terrible decision! Service was among one of the worst I had in this city. Food, though the plates where big, was not good.
Definitely, a place I would not recommend.
There are many better places around

Locals directed us here. Service was welcoming. Meal starts with a tasty fish spread that is delivered to your table. The calamari was fresh, tender and delicious. Portions are generous. We were there off season and it appeared to be a favorite with locals. Definitely worth the stop. A basic restaurant, offering fresh seafood and accommodating wait staff.

This small restaurant may not looks as you can expect form a top five restaurant in Mar del Plata… it is outside of the tourist zone and a few blocks from the local port… It has some maintenance issues… BUT the food is the real gem.

The seafood is delicious. The portions are huge. The prices are very reasonable. A family atmosphere will welcome you and the staff will assist you in the food selection.

No coffee and tea.

It is very popular so expect large waiting times if you cannot arrive early.

The place is not fancy, it's very near the harbor and much better than the fancy ones.
The portions are big and you can select 1/2 if it's just for 1.
The quality of the seafood and the fish is amazing and the service is super friendly.
Good price for food.
