Situated on a street corner, La Galette is the ideal place to sit at a table on the pavement and watch the passing parade of people and their pooches. It was a balmy summer's evening and the perfect place to dine. My meal was delicious,...More

I went in for a cafe latte(cafe con leche). Enjoyed it with a tasty little crepe with dulce de leche. It had the feel of Paris the waitress spoke French, English and Spanish. Service was very pleasant.

The place is very cozy and staff very friendly. As for the crepes, amazingly good. I had a poulet aux champignons prepared with white wine, it was just perfect. Totally recommended for a healtier meal down town Buenos Aires.

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.
