Good food & service

Very good service and nice surroundings. The service was attentive without being "pushy" and the food was exquisite. As you'e expect in Buenos Aires, the meats were incredibly tender. Not being familiar with the wines we took recommendations from the waitress and were delighted with her choices.

Lovely room, great sommelier but average food. 100 pesos more for the same bottle of wine at any other fine restaurant. There are better choices in BA

This superb and elegant Buenos Aires restaurant, with its innovative menu, attentive and delightful staff blew us away last night. I´d give it a 10 1/2, if it were possible.

I have been a regular at Le sud for ten years already. Although prices have gone skyrocket during 2015 in Buenos Aires, Le sud, still offers a great menu for hte value of your money. You may have one main course, dessert, one glass of delicious wine, water and coffe for 340 pesos, which is less than 30 US dollars.... More

The breakfasts at this restaurant is first class both in terms of service and choice of food and beverages. However we were disappointed with dinner.

I am generally reluctant to visit hotel restaurants but this one was a gem. We had the tasting menu which involved five dishes and wines to match. We particular liked the Malbec which was from Patagonia rather than the Mendoza valley and had a very different taste..almost peppery. All dishes were very good but the deer and the dessert in...

As I stayed at the Sofitel Hotel (where this restaurant is housed) I eat here at breakfast and the last two nights. Breakfast was OK but given silly little coffee pots so I had to keep asking for a refill and then ask another waitress as the first had forgotten/busy elsewhere. Not a vast selection of buffet food or bread/pastries.... More

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
