Las Cabras

You will find Las Cabras in the district of Palermo Hollywood in the street Fitz Roy. It is one of the top spots for typical Argentinean food, especially beef steak. Guests can choose between several different dishes of meat accompanied by side dishes, such as vegetables or French fries. The clientele is a good mix of tourists and locals, adding to the authenticity, but increasing the waiting time. No problem, just sit back in the sun and relax – Las Cabras has a garden with trees, providing a cool shadow during the midday heat.
