Slightly overpriced in my opinion. The food is good, service could be a bit better in time and friendliness. We ordered meats. the were OK- not extraordinary. from the local crowd, it seems the forte is on the pizza and pasta side of the spectrum.

Our South Antarctica cruise company treated us here before we board our cruise. Good ambience and quite crowded, probably because our group already occupied the entire second floor of the restaurant. Food was reasonably tasty and good and was pre-selected with few choices because it...More

Normal average food, normal prices for that sort of place and in a good location. There are some menu options that are quite cheap.

I have been doing errands with my wife, and needed a break. We entered Babieca, and we found a great ambient, plenty of space in the 1st floor. We had coffee and the Balcarce cake (you must try it, you won't regret).

I stopped in for dinner to try Argentinian beef and it was great. Portions are huge and the peppercorn sauce was delicious. I tried Malbec and Cabernet house wines. Both were excellent. Service was very good.

We had dinner at Babieca and it was very nice. The service is good, specially considering the dreadful treatment you usually get in Argentina. The price is reasonable and worth it. At night, you probably won't have to wait if you don't get there early,...More

Noisy space. Decent pizza. Non-existent service. Acceptable wine list. But all at very reasonable prices. I won't be back.

We landed here after walking up and down Santa Fe Ave and all the restaurants were giving us LONG wait times even though others who arrived after us were being seated. So we decided to give this place a try. At first impression it is...More

Characterised by the French-style mansions which are
the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the
true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this

turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude
an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll
