Pascal and his team add a layer of genuine hospitality to an already excellent culinary experience. A charming raconteur and we had one of the best nights of our 15 day trip. Amazing atmosphere and superb food, thank you!

This restaurant serves a typical French dinner in a beautifull old building. Serves and dishes excellent. Worth a visit.

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
