My wife and I wanted a place to eat that was lighter than traditional BA food - our hotel concierge suggested this place. The look from the outside was modest Japanese but the sashimi and sushi were extremely fresh and fine, with generous portions. Sushi was mostly fish, rather than rice or avacado. Sashimi serving was most generous, especially the... More

If you like sushi, the really good sushi. You have to know Irifune. The first time I was there a friend of mine told me: "Is a place where go the japanese people. And he was right. It is a small place, but, very good. Prices, normal. Service, good.

As a sushi lover, it's very hard to find a good sushi spot for dinner. This place was a good find for us. Classy establishment, great ambiance for a date, and delicious food. We had the miso soup to start (missed that), some well prepared sushi, and a bottle of wine selected of a very cool ipad application showing the... More

I've been coming to this restaurant since 2009 on various (5) trips to Buenos Aires. Yes, their prices have gone up, but their quality is still very, very high. I came here the other day because I'd been eating some very heavy Argentine meals of mostly beef, and wanted something a little lighter. I got a "package" deal on grilled... More

Did a very late lunch. Nice ambiance. Sushi of good quality. Unfortunately no unagi, seaweed or edamame on the menu. But all in all, good enough!

Excellent sushi, but a little expensive, especially if you're really hungry. Fish was delicious and fresh. Excellent menu variety and sharing options.

If tired of steaks then this is a good place to go to eat rice and sashimi. Friendly staff, though English is very limited. Free WiFi.

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.
