Went here for lunch on my only day in Buenos Aries. The food was wonderful, however I almost felt like a ghost while inside. The waiters were paying more attention to the tables with multiple people and left me alone, and couldn’t get their attention....More

I ate lunch with a large group here and the food was great, especially the puffed fries and beef Milanese.

I am sure that at one time this was a sought out place. But Avenue Corriendes is a bit like NYC Times Square- a bit tattered. We ate here out of desperation, wanted to find a place to eat we eat where we could walk...More

This is a classic restaurant in the middle of the city. Walking into the restaurant will give you the feeling that you walked back in time. Food is simple, delicious and inexpensive. Set menus are a great deal. Must have are the papas soufflé which...More

At Lavalle Street near Avenida Corrientes, a nice place to have a good meal and drink some beers. French fries are the main food, but you can choose meat or pasta.

Back in BA and, on our first night, decided to come here. We first came here with some Argentine friends, more than 37 years ago (although can't remember whether the restaurant was on Lavalle or Corrientes). Still as good. The Papas Soufle are a must,...More

Beef and potatoes were tasty. The place was not crowded and the service was great. Unfortunately, the pasta was simply okay. This restaurant was accepting cash only during our visit.

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes
