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.

Montserrat is "the" Spanish district in BA, with its wide Avenida de Mayo resembling La Gran Vía in Madrid, and its many spacious, old-style Spanish restaurants. El Globo is one of them, standing and serving since the 19th century in the same traditional square. If you are used to posh places with new-concept food and bilingual, internationally trained staff, you... More

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 that's always a positive. It's not expensive and an enjoyable experience.

Went there recently with my Porteño friend. Definitely old school Argentine cuisine. I stepped back 50 years. There room was full of men-business men on business lunches. The waiters were dressed to impress. The food was overall good to very good. We had the melted provolone cheese (Provoleta)-very good. We went with the lunch menu of day: great bargain of... More

Staying in Montserrat

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighbourhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
