Rude inattentive staff, awful food and don’t let them suggest a wine, barely drinkable. We had the Puchero for 4, the rest of the menu must be better given they are still in business.

Hoe this restaurant can survive 110 years and why we received a recommendation is a riddle to me. Perhaps the meat is okay but the fish was awful. Both the sole and the tuna. And just one type of beer where every restaurant now serves...More

We had a late evening meal here last night which was decent but the steak was overdone (somewhat surprising for BA) and the waiter gave us a bottle of malbec that was 3x the cost of the malbec we ordered. The waiter didn't speak any...More

This is acknowledged for serving Puchero a typical Argentinian dish. I liked it, but unfortunately the red blood sausage, one of the components of this dish was old and damaged the whole plate once together. After, I put it aside, then, the food was good.

Just back from the restaurant... I had some decent shrimps with garlic, but then instead of grilled tuna they served me a stinking swordfish...everything but fresh. I hope I will survive.

Walking into this high ceiling ornate restaurant was like stepping back in history. It wasn't the best steak I had in Buenos Aires but the atmosphere and super friendly waiters made up for that. It is traditional Argentinian food, all the customers were locals so...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
