We decide to have lunch at this exclusive and elegant hotel. We enjoyed a super fresh assortment of cold cuts and salads. They had a Sushi station made to order , also a small menu a la carte and very tasty sweet station for desserts, and petite fours. Excellent food and impecable service.

Food good although a large party so set menu. Delicious pate but serve far too large. Chicken well over cooked - just how I like I! Desert plate fabulous with bite sized morsels of seven desserts. Wines excellent. We would head for the restaurant on the basis of this introduction.

Brunch was outstanding. The chorizo sausage and the creamed spinach were mouth-watering. Not a lot of choice for hot foods but plenty of bread and pastries. Definitely a cut above. All drinks are included in the higher price.

We went there with friends on a festive day. Restaurant pretty nice in the wonderful Alvear Hotel. Food less than remarkable. Buffet - I was told - was OK. My swordfish was not. Chewy and dry and tasting... little. Nice place, but I doubt I'll go back.

They serve breakfast, buffet lunch, and tea. Huge brunch is served on Sundays. It is all laid out, and a feast for the eyes, the freshest croissants, freshest cut and sliced fruits, pastries, bakery, and for those so inclined eggs and bangers, smoked salmon and cream cheese, nothing is ever amiss at the Orangerie, it not only looks appealing it...

If you want to experience a very traditional and luxurious Café, try this one. They serve very good coffe sided by some fantastic sweets. I am not a big fan of sweet, but I must confess they were amazing. The atmosphere is something like having a coffe inside the Versailles Palace in 19th century. Definitely, much better than Café Tortoni.... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
