Have been to this place a few times now and they do have the best gnocchi in Buenos Aires. A few years had passed since my last visit and went back in April 2018. What a lovely surprise to find that the gnocchi are still...More

We got the feeling the staff wasn't that thrilled to see us. The service was quite minimal. Food quite tasty but also kinda pricy.

We read a lot of good things about this place but were disappointed. The steaks were only okay and the side dishes are not worth ordering. Service was okay but certainly not worth the service charge that automatically landed on our bill.

I loved eating at this restaurant when I was staying in Buenos Aires - the steaks are excellent and the portions generous. While I always found the owner to be attentive and friendly, the rest of the staff were generally the opposite, unfortunately.

The food was just ok. What stood out the most, though, was the service. Two waitresses who seem like they just hate every customer who walks through the door. I happily said "hola!" to one of them, who replied to me with "si...?", as she...More

We are coming here for more than 5 years and it is a real treat every time. The owner Sergio had a really great staff. Lomo Azul is my favorite, but everything is delicious and the service is very friendly. We advise it to our...More

As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires,
Montserrat is defined by the historical events that
took place there and the landmarks that have stood the
test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of
this connection to history: countless public
demonstrations have passed through this square, going
back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the
streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos
