Had lunch here yesterday. Our waiter spoke some English and was from Italy. He was efficient and pleasant. The place has a somewhat old fashioned atmosphere (that’s meant in a positive way) and was quite busy. I had the trout, and my partner the Caesar...More

Found this on TripAdvisor and was pleasantly surprised. Friendly staff welcomed me into into a small bar/restaurant. Tried the recommended Malbec to start, excellent choice. Main course was risotto with shrimp, definitely recommend to anyone. Service was very good and helpful.

The bistro is hip and has a cool vibe. We visited for lunch. The place was quiet (which is common because our lunch was at 1 p.m.; not the traditional time here). The food is tasty and the service was on point.

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.

We arrived early both times we went there, so we didn't need a reservation. ("Early" in Buenos Aires isn't very early compared to the USA.)
