This place was excellent! We were a bit timid walking in as we saw many locals filling the chairs, but as soon as we entered we were shown a table that we could eat at before the original reservation came. Our waiter was a dream! He was so friendly and offered up advice on what to get on the menu.... More

Hands down, I had my favorite meal in BA here at Dada. This place was packed, but the staff were still accommodating and found us a seat at the bar. We started with a caprese salad, beer and wine. After watching the bartenders mix dozens of well crafted cocktails, I also ordered a mojito, which might have been the best... More

We came upon this place almost by chance one evening. We don't speak (much) Spanish but the staff were lovely and welcoming and helpful. They have a board with key dishes presented in English. We arrived quite early when it was quiet but it rapidly filled - despite being mid-week off-season. We selected 'Italian' dishes and they were both generous... More

This small restaurant was near our hotel and as it had good reviews we tried it on our first night in the city. It's very small but we went around 7.30 and had no problem getting a table. Another night we tried after 9 but there was a long queue.The waiter was very welcoming and brought us a board with... More

I love this place. I visit Buenos Aires from time to time with work and always drag some colleagues here to share the joy. For me it's everything I want from a restaurant. Most importantly the food is delicious. The steaks have always been huge, tender and cooked to perfection. The dulce de leche fondant alone is worth the visit.... More

This is an interesting little restaurant. It has an Italian style mixed with Argentinian. The food is good and comforting and the atmosphere is great. Good cool jazz music in the back ground. It is small and crowded which lends to its ambience. The service on the night was friendly and prompt. It's not a place to linger over a... More

Seriously just had the best steak with a mustard sauce and felt that I had to write the review while I had the taste in my mouth and the memory strong in my mind. It was fantastic. The steak was tender, flavorsome and a great portion for the price. Don't really want to tell everyone how good this place is... More

Ojo de bife was amazing with the salsa, potatoes, and greens. We also got a brie salad and that was enough food for us. Portions are huge. They gave us hummus and bread for free while we waited and offered us drinks after we paid the bill. The bar is a friendly spot with great restaurant food. Highly recommended as... More

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.
