    Awesome flavours, service and menu. My partner wants me to add that meats need a decent side included with the meal :)

    The service was great and the food even better. Loved the skirt fillet really pairs well with the chips.

    Don’t even know where to start. Firstly we came for our 1st wedding anniversary. The waiters need to learn how to be able to interact with customers. We ordered at 6, got our mains at 745 after asking numerous times whats happening with our food considering tables who just walked in were getting food before us, we told the manager and he completely snubbed us off like “next time you come in we will look after you” there isn’t going to be a next time as it was so horrible this time. My biggest concern is! I asked the waiter if any of the food contained coriander as I am ALLERGIC, he said no. I started eating my meat and side, and I instantly knew it had coriander in it as my throat started tingling up. This isn’t okay. What happens if someone dies from a allergic reaction because your staff isn’t educated? Let’s just say, your whole team didn’t even care. We paid the FULL bill & left. Will never ever return. Disappointed is a understatement.

    They didn't have what we wanted (Beef assador) so we left without ordering. It makes me wonder if there's any proper rib joint in Adelaide. I'll continue looking.

    Food was pretty good but we were disappointed because they got our order wrong and didn’t even bother changing it to the correct one. They got our bill wrong too- charging us for a pint rather than a schroom. It was only a dollar difference but still it was wrong. When we called it out, the cashier had to sarcastically call out it was a dollar difference. I mean c’mon!

    Food was great we had the chef selection for food and drinks. The atmosphere was great with the open fire however we had to order our drinks a second time as the waiter either forgot or misinterpreted our order. Once pointed out they quickly fixed it up.

    Great Food - consistently good every time helpful staff, very happy. No room for dessert, which looked great. Wish we lived closer so we could go more often.

    Food good but I feel a little over priced. Was a shame they did not open wine, but that's not overly important.

    Food was fantastic and service was fast - perfect for a work lunch. We were a big group and the seating was squashy but everyone had a great meal (very generous serves).

    Really funky restaurant with mouth watering meat on offer. Ordered the Asador Lamb and Skirt Steak for main with a side of chips. DELICIOUS!!! The meat was melting on the plate. The Croquettes for entree are a definite, and the Beef Empanadas were very tasty. If you are looking for good meat for lunch or dinner, this is the place to come eat at.

    My family and I dined last night at La Boca, on Friday 11th October. It was for 3 birthday celebrations. The food has always been exceptional which is why we continue going back. We have our favourite steak every time ie 300g Entrana Skirt Steak. Last night when we dined at La Boca, we were told they had run out of the skirt steak and so we couldn't order what we came there for and we were looking so forward to having it. We were devastated. I don't understand how a dish so popular could run out. La Boca should make sure that they always have enough to cater for any dish ordered from the menu. We ordered alternative dishes. I ordered the chicken instead which was lovely and my sons ordered the sirloin which they enjoyed but we agreed, it wasn't the same as having the skirt steak. My husband ordered the rib and was extremely disappointed as he said most of it was surprisingly covered in fat rather than meat so you can imagine when our bill totalled $200 he said the meal wasn't worth what we paid for compared to all the other times we have dined at La Boca. It was disappointing given how wonderful it's been every other time. I'm not so sure now that my husband wants to go back to La Boca. I can't say I blame him. He's not very forgiving when he has experiences at restaurants.

    Side order selection could possibly be expanded and addition of sauces or butters for steaks, but steaks and sides ordered were very nice and well cooked (ie cooked as ordered).

    Food, drinks. service - all excellent. Our food came out promptly and the table was cleared quickly. Steak cooked to perfection with the portion sizes of all dishes we ordered being quite generous. My jug of sangria was the best!

About the restaurant

The most authentic Argentinean in Australia

La Boca is quite simply, a stunning and wildly colourful place to visit. Not only in the actual décor which is a kaleidoscope of bright chairs, multi-coloured lights and stark colourful painting on the wall, but in the amazing creations bought out of the kitchen from South American chef Nicolas Arriola. The plates are impeccably designed using the freshest ingredients and prepared with the hope that the dishes will be shared, as is the South American way. The wine list holds a wide selection of international wines and beers and the open plan kitchen means you can see your chefs preparing and cooking everything in front of you. Their Asador grill is handcrafted in Argentina and has Australian red gum and Argentinean charcoal which enhances the flavours of the meat which is slow cooked and can be smelt through the entire restaurant. An absolute treat to visit and located in the heart of the city, you will have an unforgettable experience here. The kids menu is also fabulous with an upgraded version available to add in desserts and extras.

Best dish: Home smoked Pork Ribs
