Central Rosario seems empty come suppertime. That’s because half the city is out on Av Carlos Pellegrini. Between Buenos Aires and Moreno there’s a vast number of family-friendly eateries, including barn-like parrillas (steak restaurants), dozens of pizza places, buffets, bars and excellent ice-creameries. Just stroll along and take your pick. Most places have street terraces.

For meals outside standard times, check out the city's many classic cafes.
