A little piece of heaven!

We went here after reading all the good reviews here on Tripadvisor, and spot on! It was absolutely amazing, I ordered shrimps in cider with Spanish ham and with creamed spinach next to it, and it just melted in my mouth! We also ordered the ham and cheese platter for two people (as a starter) and... read more

We came into town on a Sunday night and most of Buenos Aires is closed down on Sunday. Our Hotel recommended the Museo de Jamon or Museum of Ham. They opened a little early for us for dinner which we really appreciated. The service was terrific and they were very friendly but we were a bit put off by the... More

Museo del Jamón is a great place for the ones who love spanish food and the spanish ham itself. Great food, great time enjoying the spanish gastronomy.

We were there on Christmas Eve--the chief feature was that it was open. The interior decor is nice and our service was very good. The food was so so, which was surprising considering that it was a special dinner. Prices were not excessive, but there are many better options at the same cost in BA.

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel, we walked the eight blocks to this Spanish restaurant and we certainly wren' t disappointed. The menu is extensive and the service is beyond belief. We had two entrees which were quite adequate for two hungry people. The wine list is good and prices not over the top. We were very happy... More

What better than sitting down with a great (and affordable) bottle of wine, and taste dozens of little platters of different Jamons and quesos?! If this were in Spain, they would call it a tapas restaurant, but they do serve full platters too.

This restaurant is located on a very central corner of Buenos Aires. The building is a typical neo french Buenos Aires belle-epoque structure, but inside it's more rustic and cozy. Service is excellent, waiters very attentive and knowledgeable about the food. I had a salmon / shrimp dish that was outstanding. The food was super fresh, exquisitely prepared and truly... More

Staying in San Nicolas

Neighborhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theater lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
