Seated out the back in the conservatory in this busy restaurant is a pleasant place to be. The service is pleasant and casual, and the food is good, with steak very much so. Been here a few times and will continue to return.

We like the small garden at the rear - more of an outdoor space - cool on a hot summers day. Good food and wine that we tried. Worth a look.

No longer called Buenos Aires, it’s been taken over by the people who run the nearby dry cleaners. Still operating as a cafe, it’s also been stripped of its Argentine theme.

Absolutely delicious charcuterie and cheese. It's a shame it can be a bit disorganised. Nice local place.

It would be fine if it didn't call itself Argentine. There's virtually no Argentine food. No empanadas. No facturas. No milanesa. No sandwiches de miga. No dulce de leche for God's sake. No chimichurri. Maybe yerba mate. THAT is what an ARGENTINE place should serve, this...More

We are sorry not to have replied before but we are a bit confused by your comments. We are a thoroughly Argentinian café, family-owned, and with lots of Argentine products. We make our own empanadas, sell mate, dulce de leche, chimichurri, dulce de membrillo, alfahores...More

Great neighborhood coffee shop. Perfect breakfast atmosphere, funky furniture, local newspapers, delicious almond criossants, and best-of-all superb fresh fruit muesli and a quiet buzz. Staff is really helpful and chatty. We will return numerous times during our 3-week stay in greenwich.

I love this cafe. The coffee is delicious and the toasted sandwiches are incredible - generously sized sour-dough sandwiches with interesting cheeses and hams and vegetables. Note, there is no wifi - it's a space to switch off. Prices aren't low, and service isn't immensely...More

This is a regular for me. From well brewed coffee through to a wide range of sandwiches (cold and toasted), salad plates, churro sand cakes this is a special local cafe. The deli serves a range of essentials from fresh bread through to wine, jam...More
