Torreon del Monje, Mar del Plata

Feel like a medieval king or queen as you survey the ocean from atop a turret at Torreon del Monje. Despite its medieval style, the distinctive building was only constructed in 1904 as an attraction for the well-off Argentine tourists who visited the beach resort of Mar del Plata. Nowadays the "Tower of the Monk" is best known as a fine-dining restaurant. Pop in during your walk for some afternoon refreshments, or visit after sundown for an exquisite evening meal.

  • An ideal place to enjoy the Sun and the rain. Spectacular to admire the Moon in the nights of the full moon reflected on the sea. Perfect your buffet for important occasions of life, weddings and birthdays.

  • It has a very nice ambiance, the view of the sea, already if adorns it. You can breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner. They have lowered prices, are a little more accessible, but should take care of rapidity in the attention, not the waiters, but the wait between ordering or waiting to bring the returned. It is very nice place
