This is a really top notch restaurant with a wide selection of pastas and main courses. We found the service to be excellent and the prices were on par with the other restaurants we ate at while in BA.

Yesterday a group of us had a great meal at Amici Miei right by San Telmo's square. It catered beautifully for our varied needs, allergies and palates. It's second floor location allows for a few choice tables for two on the balcony overlooking the square, an air conditioned interior dining area and a patio area for hardened smokers. The service...

This restaurant is in Plaza Dorrego which was in the same square as our hotel Anselmo Buenos Aires. We read the good reviews and tried it for dinner. We actually tried to go eat dinner at 7:30 pm and they didn't open until 8 pm. We brought our own bottle of wine and they charged us 120 pesos for corkage.... More

We found this place during one of our trips to Buenos Aires 2 years back and keep coming every time we are back to Argentina. Located right in the heart of the San Telmo market with view on the square this place is a proof to the Italian influence in Argentinian culinary culture. A must if you're only 2 people... More

Nice location overlooking Plaza Dorrigo. The restaurant is upstairs so you know that as there is no lift. Nice view over the Plaza. Get a balcony table if you can. The food is ok not special.

Staying in San Telmo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
