You can't visit Buenos Aires without eating a steak and this is the place to do it. We enjoyed out steaks and sides very much. The service was good. Be aware that they charge a $2.50 cover charge (for bread?!) They did serve complimentary champagne...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.
