Friendly place to have dinner, close to Recoleta. The only problem that we had to wait a little because there was one waiter for many people.Wine selection is very interesting

The Michelin firmament has not yet moved this far south of the equator, but when it does, this restaurant will be a quick addition to the constellation. The decor is elegantly modern, even severe, with well separated tables on a polished marble floor with a glassed-in roasting room on the side. We were greeted and seated quickly. We both ordered...

This is an excellent restaurant--inside the Alvear Palace hotel. The service is top notch and the food excellent. I had the Pepper Filet--not sure of the exact name--and it was one of the best I had in a long time. I did not realize that they prepare it at your table in a 'flaming" pan. Cooked to perfection and the... More

Service was outstanding! Best ever. Menu was most traditional French with no surprises. Boring atmosphere. I found it kind of dull. They should do something about that. I saw a piano but there was no music that night. Best cheese table ever. Mud oven fish was tasteless. Everything very expensive. Wine selection is great. I think is the best in... More

It was a good experience, but below the high expectations we had due to the name of the restaurant. Perhaps the size of the group (18 people) affected performance. Cooking for such a large group is not easy. Service was excellent, the room downstairs lacks warm atmosphere, food was good but not outstanding. Wine selection is very interesting

If you're staying close to Recoleta, you must come to Alvear Palace hotel and eat in their resto. Price is very reasonable (unless you choose the caviar) and food is excellent. Lots of free starter and at the end of the meal, they'll bring out a nice plate of "dessert" which you really don't need any dessert. Frog's leg starter... More

If you like French cuisine, you will love La Bourgogne. The menu and wine list are outstanding. My favorite dish in the world is Confit de Canard and it is outstanding in this restaurant. Excellent ambiance. This is one of, if not, the bast restaurants in BA.

We arrived in BA at 10:30 pm having started our day in Patagonia at 5 am. We wanted a light meal and some civilization and we got both at La Bourgogne. We were seated at 11 and even though it was the end of the day, we were welcomed and in no way rushed. We explained we would only have... More

Alvear Palace in Recoleta is place to stay in BA. Since place was revamping we were circumspect. Needlessly. Go. You will enjoy it. I remember the frogs legs were terrific. As well as Patagonian tooth fish. An experience to have before you croak. Those poor frogs.....

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.
