Is this Adelaide’s best Argentinian restaurant?

I ventured into one of Adelaide's more interesting recent additions; the La Boca Bar and Grill next to the Stanford Plaza Hotel on North terrace. What used to be a seedy nightclub and pokie bar by day has been transformed into a relaxed Argentinian themed restaurant which can seat 100.

The spectacular fire pit is the first thing you see as you step inside the door. It's the only one of its kind in Adelaide.


The open kitchen, flame grill and smoke in the air adds to the festive atmosphere of this buzzing, vibrant restaurant. You can choose from a set menu or select your own assortment of starters, mains and sides.

The entrees are good value and great for sharing. There are SA olives, cheese croquettes, Empanadas, fresh SA oysters, pork sausage, black pudding or sweetbreads to choose from.

We ordered the Pan Con Chimi with a selection home-made traditional dips. The three dips were all very different with varying levels of piquancy.


The mains are a meat lover's delight. Carnivores can choose from a selection of black Angas grain fed steaks, grilled chicken thighs, a selection of wood fired meats, or an Argentinian burger. All meats are grilled to perfection on the Asador.

My friend enjoyed the Grilled chicken thigh marinated with salsa verde. The smoky, grilled flavor won us over.


Vegetarians and non-meat eaters aren't forgotten either with a tomato and fennel seafood pot, charcoal baked barramundi, crumbed eggplant and quinoa salad to tempt the tastebuds.

My barramundi was served with fresh lime and asparagus and melted in my mouth.


Those with big appetites will enjoy the set menus but beware the servings are very generous. Set menus are amazing value and a great idea to sample what's on offer. They range from the Pollo at $39, the Pescado ($48) or the Asado Supremo ($59).

My friend was defeated by the huge servings of beef, lamb and suckling pig on his plate.


For those who still have room, a range of desserts is on offer including caramel ice cream popsicles, white chocolate mousse cigars, Argentinean caramel and coffee cream cake or an apricot and cranberry slice.

The apricot and cranberry slice was a tasty dessert but we were just too full to do it justice.


If you are just after a drink with friends this is a fun place to stop at with its great vibe and vibrant décor.

My friend enjoyed a refreshing, cool Mojito which had Havana rum, lime and mint.


This will certainly give the few other Argentinian restaurants in Adelaide a run for their money…
