A superior dining experience in Recoleta, Buenos Aires. Nice atmosphere, basically late 19 century decor. Excellent service. Choose the seafood over the beef menu. Raw tuna appetizer was a subtle combination of taste that were unique to what is normally an unimaginative dish. Fish main dish was an excellent, fresh, ample fillet of Lenguado with a wonderful garbanzo bean purée.... More

I've tried two dishes here: one was a fish dish and the other was the squid risotto. Both were good, but I'd say if you had to choose one dish, GET THE RISOTTO. Everything about it was perfection - I'm not exaggerating. Best risotto I've ever had!

This is a traditional old-style restaurant in Recoleta with no nonsense good seafood ( and some meat dishes as well): no adventures on the menu. The restaurant is nicely decorated with paintings and prints of sea creatures. You can ask for English speaking service: waiters are experienced and helpful. We had a small incident with the bill (as one price... More

As any traveler to Argentina knows, the basic diet consists of meat and potatoes in one form or another. Salads, breads and sweets are obtained easily but seafood and vegetables require a bit of a search. Oviedo provided wonderful seafood in a small corner resauarant in Recoleta, an upper middle class barrio simmilar in feel to Manhattan's upper east side.... More

Great fish, good wine, and excellent atmosphere. Prices are higher than other restaurants, but still a good deal.

Most traditional Spanish food restaurants in Buenos Aires lost their style years ago, but Oviedo keeps being as the one of the best sea food options in town. The place is warm and the waiters, not cool beautiful boys but professional and experienced men are excellent. Wine options are superb, you'd better ask for advise on this because you may... More

Waste of time and money. Cost benefit does not pay. Common meal, without anything special, more for light food than gourmet cuisine. Frequency of elderly on the day I was in Oviedo, nothing against the elderly, but it was odd the excessive by them. In my case, a resident of the city of São Paulo, Brazil, my city has options...

Although it's been there for many years, this time we really enjoyed the fish: fresh and not overcooked or over sauced. The appetizers were merely average, but the wine list was excellent and the service professional. Prices were somewhat high for Argentinian standards ,but worth it.

The salmon and scallops were cooked to perfection, the wine list was superb, and the ambiance was quite beautiful. We'd highly recommend eating here!

I do not hesitate to state that Oviedo is the best restaurant in Buenos Aires. Their menú is absolitely first class, the same as the service. Their prices are similar to an average meal at Puerto Madero. Oviedo is visited by many foreign visitors specially fom the US. I highly recommend their lamb and their very complete wine list, that...
