Makes a very good first impression. Looks clean festive and it was crowded adding to the ambiance. We started with a wine that was horrible (it was the cheapest but they should not even offer it if it is that bad). The paella was a real disappointment. It had not been prepared with any salt. The many ingredients were indistinguishable... More

I was in this restaurant the 4th time and this time I was really disappointed. The waitress seemed bored and not really interested in serving us. After this, we had to wait for nearly an hour for our food with several "it will be served soon" from the waitress. We had two different dishes. What they served as "bife de... More

Plaza Asturias is a traditional restaurant in avenida de mayo. Service is very good and the setting is very Spanish but the food is just simply outstanding, particularly the seafood rice and the paella are just amazing. Make sure you order conservatively as the portions, particularly for the rice are huge (2 people means almost 4 for them!)

Seafood Paella is bland and tasteless, it looks delicious, but, unfortunately its terrible. I shared a large order with 3 people, everyone agreed. It was also very expensive, the equivalent of $60 USD. Proveletta was standard quality, Churiso had large chunks of fat, middle quality at best. I have 16 years experience with Argentine restaurants, it's popular but not tasty.

My husband does not eat meat and this is the perfect restaurant for him. The seafood menu was extensive and the serving huge. Just like a lot of restaurant in BA it is dated but with the charm of European café except that this one was big and very busy. Pricing is inexpensive compared to the serving size. I forgot... More

Came on a recommendation and had a great night. Excellent service, tasty food (but steak a bit overdone). Would definitely recommend. A good place to park up for the night and enjoy yourself. Arrive early if you want a table.

Asturias is our favourite restaurant in BA and offers a great dining experience in a city renowned for its steaks the Lomo is consistently perfectly cooked coupled with the fantastic table service an extensive menu and (free?) appetisers and limoncillo to finish with it makes for a great night out.

Came here for a casual dinner by myself, staff were friendly and food was fresh and delicious. The menu is slightly over whelming! But would definitely come back.

This is a large place and so popular that it was packed! We arrived before the crowds and consider it one of the best places we found in Buenos Aires. The menu was extensive and the portions large. Wine was inexpensive, the service attentive, and the atmosphere fun-filled and festive. Favorite dishes were a rice and chicken dish and a... More

The outside of Plaza Asturias isn't very inviting but once you're inside high quality service makes impression. You get very interesting welcome snack and you need a long while to study very rich menu. You can choose depending on your taste and wallet but be sure that it doesn't have to be expensive to be delicious and unforgettable. Very good... More

Staying in Montserrat

Neighbourhood Profile
Montserrat
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.
