Pros: energetic ambiance, colorful decor, and excellent food (pamplonas are heavenly) Cons: slow service, waiters forget orders, thus not a great value (tab for 3 without wine was over 2000 pesos)

Strange to say this, but is getting difficult to find a good parrilla in the last years in BA. Some with good meat are crazy touristic and overpriced, others more local give you not real good meat. El pobre Luis has the prefect combination: good...More

Be prepared to wait for a bit - but it's very worth it. Charming restaurant in the Belgrano neighborhood with red accents laid against original brickwork and adorned with soccer jerseys. This place is all about the famous grilled meats with very generous portions. We...More

As one of the main commercial hubs of Buenos Aires,
Belgrano has something for everyone. The myriad of
shop windows in Cabildo Ave. will draw you in, but it
is Chinatown — an area of no more than two square
blocks — which will keep you hooked. Crowned by an
ornate arch marking its entrance and filled with small
stores packed to the brim, it is a place where colour
