A fabulous Belle Epoque restaurant in Retiro, very centrally located. Over 40% of Argentenians are of Italian ancestry, so it is not surprising that the Italian immigrants would have a club, and what a club it is. We were there as part of a Road...More

The restaurant is housed in a former residence. Tucked away between more recently build business locations on a busy street it is a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires. The stylish restaurant room in the back of the building offers garden...More

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest.
