Old style seafood resto

Oviedo is an old-style seafood restaurant, reminiscent of enviable European style and quality. The menu is extensive and intriguing. A beautiful shrimp dish with brandy sauce and bacon and tomato flavours was followed by a delicious squid and octopus risotto, rich and beautifully prepared. I had... read more

I last went there some 6 months ago, and everything was fine, but....consistency is the key to a really great restaurant, and this time here they fell very short of my expectations. I had the lamb, which was practically inedible, accompined by some very weirdly tasting vegetables, my 3 companions had an assortment of the other maincourses, whereas nothing was... More

We are always looking for good restaurants atmosphere and more than just a good steak and Oviedo had all this Similar in style to a Parisienne restaurant good quality and by European standards not overly expensive

Very pleasant, quiet place with excellent menu,service and wine list. The food was excellent and contrary to other places it did not have to be beef. The wine list covered most of Argentina and the waiter was able to help us navigate it with an excellent result.

I was really looking forward to returning to Oviedo as I had had a wonderful meal on my earlier trip to BA. Unfortunately, the menu was now largely Italian and fish dishes. The waiters were not friendly. They forgot my cerviche and the veggies accompanying my baby pork were uninspired. However, my friends seemed pleased with their selections or maybe... More

I'm not sure why this restaurant stays open all afternoon, since it was completely empty until 8 pm. So come early to enjoy some of the city's best food and service with no reservations and no waiting! The food was exquisite- the sucking pig, crispy outside, tender inside, was a particular standout - and the service was extraordinary. It's a... More

This is a nice place. I wouldn't get ecstatic about it, but food was decent and it was a nice break from typical meat diet we were on

This Buenos Aires restaurant delivers both on food and service with a beautifully classic decor. We started our meal with a bottle from their extensive wine list which would make any wine lover happy. We ordered three starters: grilled shrimp, grilled calamari, and grilled octopus. We then placed our order after which we noticed the food being brought to another... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
