  • I've been up there only twice ever but it's fair to say it's a nice trip up from the city at any time. I was looking at something or other earlier today that lead me to Atelier Chez Lissie. Have any of you been there? My main question is, having looked at a map, how the heck do you get there?

  • We try to go to the Delta most weeks and have been to nearly all the restaurants in the first and second section. Unfortunately I haven't been to Atelier Chez Lissie for many years so can't comment on how it is now.
    You can get boats (lancha colectivas) from the Terminal Fluvial de Tigre which is next to the last stop on the Mitre train line. You would need to study a timetable to see which ones pass by the Rio Capitan for the Atelier Chez Lissie.

    There are also many booths in the port selling tickets for restaurants that run transport for their customers. Water taxis are also available.
    The best way is obviously to own a boat which gives you better flexibility on time and location.
    Restaurants on the Delta tend to be expensive but a great escape from the city.

  • Are there any floating restaurants? I mean ones that you can dine on and see the sights as the boat sails along?

    I'd rather like that.

    I don't know of any but possibly Sturla organise trips occasionally. I prefer just to be in one place and watch all the different boat coming and out. Rio Pajarito has a few decent restaurants and is quite close to Tigre.

    We once went to Gato blanco. It is on an island with outdoor seating and you can have lunch and watching the boats on the river passing by.

    I don't recall if the boat was included in the price or if we bought the tickets separately. We went at least 6 years ago because my husband's grandfather wanted to spend a day out. The food is the usual parrilla and Argentinian dishes (milanesa etc.)
