I ended up at Puerto Madero while looking for the Buque Bus terminal. After missing my ferry I decided to walk around and it is a very nice walk. The buildings are obviously originals from time pat but have been beautifully updated without losing their authenticity. The "compass bridge' was a highlight for me and I enjoyed posing on it...

Interesting regenerated port area, much like in London, NYC.etc. Some good restaurants and other chains. Open space and water makes a welcome break from the congested dusty streets of BA. (I was here in winter)

This is one of the new residential areas of Buenos Aires, and seems to cater to wealthier people who want to have the parks and views they could not get in Recoleta. It has many parks and on a nice day walking the boardwalk and watching the boats is a great way to spend and afternoon. The area is also... More

Great wine and food for all, sat outside and watched the world go by as we wined and dined. It was close to a perfect moment. The food was outstanding. All fresh and tasty. Very well prepared. The wine list is robust. And good choices abound along the entire $ spectrum. Service was delightful. Helpful. They just let us sit... More

Nice area located along former naval base in Buenos Aires. Great scenery and restaurants to visits. One of my fav Italian restaurants is located there...called Marcelo and it's definitely worth the visit. Highly secured area as well so you feel pretty safe perusing the area.

It is amazing to see, after a few years, how much the renovation efforts for the area of Buenos Aires' old port - the famous "Puerto Madero" - have changed and upscaled this whole neighborhood! At the same time, I must agree that the newly developed area looks much more like another town, almost disconnected of the Buenos Aires that... More

Lovely place to go for a stroll and eye up the busy restaurants along the river. Easy to find somewhere busy and safe to walk around at night also.

The old docks are great for walking around, and the area is fairly clean and has a distinct personality with the old warehouse buildings lining the streets and the occasional, colourful mechnical cranes painted yellow and orange. The planked bridge walkways and cobblestones immediately along the water are a bit challenging for heels, though!

This is a port like most, but there is also some decent cuisine to be enjoyed here. Look for the restaurant that looks like the doors belong on a horse stable. I can't remember the name, but the food was great.

An excellent place to go for a walking, have a break and have dinner. Really beautiful and with a nice ambiance. Id say that it could be more attractions as diferent types of restaurants and snack bars for the day and some entertainment staff and museums... but I really like this place and ill recommended it for sure

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.
