I enjoy local places, specially if they have history. My local tour guide show me the Avenue Mayo with many famous and historical buildings. It was a nice walking. We stopped to get a coffee and watch old men playing " billar" and she told me the history of the place with important people that had been there. I felt... More

My experience was at lunchtime, lazy afternoon and it was an enjoyable find. The food was good family Itallian cooking, and the portions were large. My bruchette starter was probably enough, but I still had the main course to go. Reasonably priced and just a great place to people watch and soak up the atmosphere. A short walk from the... More

I made a reservation based on others' reviews. I was expecting dancing and music. It wasn't until we were at the door that I was informed that it was music only. Had they told me that when I made the reservation, I would have looked elsewhere. Finding out at 9:00 PM on my last night in the city that I... More

A 100 year old bar/café, that has every night tango shows. The show are quiet typical, not not that "broadway" style you can get in other places on the city. The food is good. I think is worth visiting especially if you want to get some feel from the "old" Buenos Aires.

My husband and i went to Los 36 Billares as they were advertising a traditional tango show on a Wednesday night for $50 pesos per person. We were not disappointed - the place had a great, warm atmosphere and basic reasonably priced italian influenced menu (they also had a special tango menu for $50 pesos). The guest performer of the...

I know the place was famous once but now I just don't understand. I found it in the guide book and was disappointed. Plenty of other spots to stop on Avenida de Mayo.

We stopped here for cafe con leche one morning and ended up coming back for the dinner and show that night. The 4 piece band was fabulous but there was no dancing for the tango music. Make sure if you book reservations that there will be dancing if that is what you want to see. Many locals, which we really... More

Although it is located in the middle of Avenida de Mayo, you don't see too many tourists. It's pure Porteno food and classic Tango.
