Went here for lunch the day before we were due to leave and wished we had found it much sooner. The Steak was fabulous and Chorizo sausage divine. Paula is a warm and friendly host. Can't recommend enough.

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
