Pretending to be a German restaurant and failing badly- except for the décor. The food was terrible, the service so-so and the waiter spoke neither English nor German.

When you tire of the best steaks in the World, give ABC a try. We were there a couple of visits back and really enjoyed the place. Great decor, friendly, helpful staff, and exellent food. A good size menu. Very convenient location.

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.
