Had an excellent visit. Best Polenta I've ever had. Interesting cocktails. Great service and original takes on classics. Had the fried goat cheese filled sorentinos with mushroom curry sauce.

What do you expect from a Bistro? Smaller tables, not that fancy restaurant look, private atmosphere, more informal, good food, fast service, not that restaurant price, wine by a cup, etc. That is Dada, informal, somewhat dark, cool, the food (ojo de bife: ribeye steak)...More

This is the place to come to get the real feel of Buenos Aires. It is all locals here. Absolutely fantastic. The food is amazing, superb cocktails and outstanding service. Only a short walk from lots of central city hotels. Have the steak!!!

Not worth coming, they kept us changing from table. The drinks were really small. Rude waitress, complete rubish this place. Dirty male and female toilets.

Little place in Retiro that gets crowded with people after work. Nice food for fair prices, very friendly staff (I believe the owner is there every day, knowing at least half of the crowd by name..), good music and great cocktails - what els can...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.

We arrived early both times we went there, so we didn't need a reservation. ("Early" in Buenos Aires isn't very early compared to the USA.)
