We had a meeting with some friends in this restaurant. I ordered a beef that wasn't particularly good but the price wasn't high either so all in all it was ok. One of the group ordered fish but it was sent back to the kitchen...More

This restaurant has been here since 1930. Food is excellent and reasonably priced. Many locals flock to it wonderful for meat, fish and pastas. Waiters have been there for ever and serve you well. Don't understand why there aren't many tourists but maybe Lezama don't...More

one of those we are losing, in an amazing neighborhood, worth a visit and a good "aperitif". Enjoy listening political discussions on the table next to yours, and don't be afraid to participate, that's how it works!

The interior looks as if nothing had been changed in the last 30 years. The entree (sardines and tomato) and the mixed salad were nothing to write home about, but the bife de lomo was perfect. Very juicy, tender, lean, tasty and probably about 400...More

This is a wonderful, traditional parilla in San Telmo. Definitely check it out if you are in the neighborhood. It's what we would call "old school" in the United States: unpretentious, excellent value. I had the bife de lomo, which was among the best steaks...More

After three weeks in Buenos Aires I was ready to right off all restaurants in this city but we finally found a place that produces flavorful food. We stopped for lunch at Lezama on our way to the San Telmo Market and loved it! We...More

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both
locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee
