San Rafael Restaurants

follow us

Like most of Argentina, the restaurants in San Rafael are dominated by pizza, pasta, and parrilla. In fact, restaurant Malbec does all three with flair. Local specialties like salted-ham, chivo and goat cheese are found at Cocina del Autor.

For quick eats, Avenida H. Yirogoyen is overflowing with standard burger joints, pizza and empanada take-outs and, of course, the Argentinean staple: super panchos. A handful of ice cream shops are found along the same street, as well.


Despite being classified as a small town, San Rafael boasts a strong nightlife similar to resort towns throughout the world. The latest ski or kayaking film grace plasma screen TVs at the majority of pubs rather than the usual Argentinean football matches or dance videos. Large crowds are non-existent throughout the week, but things heat up each weekend at the small town-based bars. The real crowds are out of town at nightclubs found along Ruta Provincial 143.
