Fodor's Review

No frills doesn't mean no charm at this longtime porteño favorite. Steaks, pastas, and salads are the draw, but don't miss the papas soufflés, meaning puffed-up french fries. If you want to go full-tilt local style, order them à la provençal and they'll arrive at your table tossed with minced garlic and parsley. After all, this place and the other three branches around town (Palermo, Recoleta, and another in Centro) aren't called the Palace of the French

Fry for no reason.

Our favorite

We ate in many great restaurants during our month in Buenos Aires but El Palacio was our very favorite. We ate in all of their branches and found them consistently excellent. We were thrilled when we discovered one on Laprida street within walking distance of our apartment.The food was always well prepared, delicious and the waiters were so polite, helpful and friendly.
