Today we're going to take you to eat at our new favourite restaurant, Del Azul in the seaside town of Las Grutas! Oftentimes when we travel, we ask people for recommendations of places to visit, and one destination that Argentines kept mentioning is the seaside town of Las Grutas. Las Grutas is located in the province of Rio Negro in the northeastern tip of Patagonia and it’s known to have the warmest waters along the Argentine coast thanks to the tides in the San Matias Gulf. This makes it a very popular destination during the summer months!

When we visited Las Grutas last year, we were surprised to find a town painted in white and blue, which reminded us a lot of Santorini. There were times when we had to do a double-take - were we on a Greek island overlooking the Aegean Sea, or in Argentina on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean?! Perhaps our one mistake visiting Las Grutas was that we arrived right at the end of the tourist season, meaning that almost all of the hotels, restaurants and tour operators were already closed.

However, we were lucky enough to discover ‘del Azul’, a restaurant by Chef Leonardo Perazzoli, where we got to try some of the tastiest seafood dishes of our whole trip across Patagonia. This restaurant right here is one of the reasons why we enjoyed our visit to Las Grutas so much, so let us take you there for dinner!

So now you know, if you ever find yourself travelling in the seaside town of Las Grutas, you have to go eat at ‘Del Azul’. The food was incredible, as was the chef’s attention with each of his guests. We would have eaten there a third time, had they been open on our last day in town! We hope you enjoyed this video, and we’ll see you soon with more adventures across Argentina.

Our NEW FAVOURITE RESTAURANT in Argentina: Eating a SEAFOOD FEAST at Del Azul in Las Grutas:

Hey guys! We are Samuel and Audrey, a travel vlogging couple from Canada. In this travel channel we share our travel and food vlogs while touring the world.

We had the privilege of traveling around Argentina for nearly 3 months from January- April 2019 on a trip covering a large section of the country.

We kicked things off with several days in Buenos Aires where we were joined by Audrey's parents eating and sightseeing around some of our favourite neighbourhoods in the city. We then flew from Buenos Aires to Cordoba where we spent a couple of weeks in the Sierras of Cordoba visiting both La Cumbrecita and Villa General Belgrano with highlights including hiking and delicious German and Swiss cuisine.

From Cordoba, we then travelled a considerable distance on an overnight bus to Mar Del Plata just in time for a special food festival called Feria Masticar featuring the best of Argentine food and wine. We spent several days enjoying beaches and seafood before heading south to Patagonia to visit the province of Chubut.

We finished visiting Patagonia with time spent in Villa La Angostura, San Martin De Los Andes and Bariloche where we enjoyed more stunning scenery and hiking. On our way back to Buenos Aires, we took the Tren Patagonia to Las Grutas before meeting up with Audrey's dad again.

To finish off our trip in Argentina, we spent more time in the capital and later Mendoza where we got to experience wine tourism to its fullest extent. Overall, we had an amazing time travelling around Argentina having only scratched the surface of this vast and diverse country.

Overall our Argentina travel series explores cities, small towns that are off-the-beaten-path, and scenic attractions with a strong emphasis on Argentina cuisine and local culture.
