Day one in Buenos Aires and where to eat? Just a few minute's walk from the Europlaza Hotel and we found this place on the next corner - it was perfect for what we were after - something good to eat, pleasant location but busy and lively ambiance, which says it all for this part of the world. We enjoyed... More

We arrived at 10.30pm on a Tuesday night. Place was busy but we managed a table upstairs in the window. Service from Hector was great. He was patient while we plodded through the menu with our very bad Spanish. The food arrived very quickly. The salad was fresh and crisp, and the bolognaise was full of flavour. Icecream and limocello... More

Not my first choice. I came in Buenos Aires late and since the restaurant is the closest to our hotel we went in but regret it because the food is awful

Horrible food. They charge you for service table plus the utensils? Save your money and go elsewhere.

Unfortunately a tourist trap. The waiter opened abruptly with: 'What do you want to drink?' 'Hola, Que tal' might have been nice. Good start. Spaghetti starter was a large bowl of luke warm spaghetti with a small some tomato sauce poured over it. More spaghetti than you could have thrown a stick at and no sauce. Awful. The pork main...

If you want the advertised "cheap combo", bring cash. Otherwise you have to order off a set (more expensive) menu. Food was pretty bland, and for almost $10US each, not really worth it. Boyfriend ordered ravioli, of which there were only 5, seriously. They were dense, but not necessarily packed with flavor. Sauce was bland. Cannelloni was similarly disappointing.

The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theatre lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby.
