Regional food, mainly stews and empanadas. Prices are very reasonable, around low hundreds (pesos) for most stews. Each empanada is 20 pesos, with a variety of fillings to choose from. Dining area is cozy, only a few tables. Good in general was tasty and hearty, definitely a good break from the usual meat and pasta.

One thing we do when travelling is seek out an eatery that seems to be busy with locals, such was the case after searching for leather jackets in the heart of Buenos Aires we stumbled upon this cute restaurant. The whole place had only 36-40 seats and those were crammed into a space about 15 feet square! The tables were... More

The empanades are good! But i dont believe its good enough to make up for the terrible service! To can manage basic spanish.. hello, how are you, etc. All the staff were openly hostile!!!!! Part of travelling is making the best of a situation where two people dont speak the same language, whether its Spanish and English or Japanese and... More

While vacationing in Argentina, I had my fill of empanadas and never had a bad one, but the BEST were here at 1810. They were baked, and the crusts were light and flaky. My favorite filling was humitas, a sweet corn creamy mash. The lunch specials were a steal--about $6 USD for 3 empanadas and a cup of wine, INCLUDING... More

So disappointed I didn't even want to recount this experience. We ordered by phone via pedis ya,received a message saying the order was rejected by the business, so we decided to walk there and placed it ourselves thinking it was possibly almost closed. After we ordered we received a message saying the order had processed, and had been delivered, so... More

You'll not find a lot of tourists here. It's a place to eat typical Argentina food, home cooking-kind. Not sophisticated but heart filling and pipping hot. Try the 'Floating Isle' as dessert. you'll thank me :)

I had a humita empanada which was baked, not deep fried, tamale and carbonada stew. It was all good, just not great. Probably the best thing was the stew - it had peach chunks in it that gave it a nice flavor. It was relatively inexpensive. Nice place for a casual meal.

I try my best to speak Spanish, however, when I struggled here the waiter/manager was so rude and unhelpful. The café was recommended by the Hotel Casa Calma, however I fed back to them the surly and offensive service. I would not give this place my time of day and most definitely not my pesos. Eating out is not just... More

I have been to this location twice and the one in Belgrano once and they share the same trait -- awful wait staff. But if you can get them to take your order and bring it to your table, the food is excellent. Try the carbonada, a stew popular in the north. Excellent.

They have wonderful hearty stews with a variety of ingredients (like meat, beans, ...), a great house wine, and great empanadas. No credit cards, but the price is so low two people can eat there at the price for one person anywhere else. We loved it so much we ate there three times during our 1-week visit to Buenos Aires,...

Staying in Retiro

Neighbourhood Profile
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. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
