A fabulous Belle Epoque restaurant in Retiro, very centrally located. Over 40% of Argentenians are of Italian ancestry, so it is not surprising that the Italian immigrants would have a club, and what a club it is. We were there as part of a Road...More

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest.
