This used to be the old DOCKS, but after renovation in the 1990´s it has become one of the most expensive places in Buenos Aires... full of restaurantes, offices and high end apartments... Great to visit and walk during the day and night. Also, one of the safest places in Buenos Aires to walk... But just in case careful.

A beautiful neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, best to vistit during the week because the weekends it gets packed with people. There are many restaurants to have lunch or dinner. Or you can just walk around or use your rollers.

Everyone recommends Puerto Madero for food so we decided to venture down for lunch. It was way too expensive for us and we wouldn't really be budget travellers. We ended up going back into the city because nothing on any of the menus was worth the money. Nice walk along the harbour though.

A very lively area of Buenos Aires, overlooking the river and looking at boats sailing. One can just stroll along or go to a restaurant or a bar adjacent and have a good time

If you are from the U.S. and missing home, take a break in Puerto Madero. A modern development section along the water front, it is highly walkable (love the bridge). It doesn't have much of a specifically Argentine feel to it however. You can find several restaurants with a feeling that is more USA-inspired.

Puerto Madero is an old port with modern cafe and fine dining restaurants by the river, beautiful for a night stroll. We had dinner at La Bisteca very good quality food.

Highrises and a rebuilt warehouse district are the highlights. A great place to go for a more casual night out

This is really a different Buenos Aires... you want to see something in contrast with the rest of the city, this is Buenos Aires moderno ! With some fine dining places (las lilas, la bisteca, el porteno, la caballeriza, estilo campo), ice cream bars, promenadas, bars and hotels (hilton, faena hotel), casino... a place to have a walk....join the luxury...

i stayed in a hotel in this area, and strolled around a fair bit. it's modern and safe.. well policed.. but not very very much to see or do other than the bridge.

Very touristy, it has a nice view of the river and offers an agreeable setting for stroling, walking the dog or simply having an ice cream in a hot afternoon. Most of the restaurants are tourist traps, though.

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighborhood Profile
Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect combination of old and new. The river provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away. Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this neighborhood a unique destination in a city as busy as Buenos Aires. The restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the docks make it a prime spot for nights out and have come to symbolize this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
