A GOOD LOCAL RESTAURANT FOR business lunch A

I used to go there as a businessman in the 90's. Now retired I still enjoy its staid Teutonic ambiance. Not many German speaking waiters left but still they can manage good German dishes. It could do with some 21st century updates but it's OK for lunch.

Stopped in for lunch and was slightly disappointed with the quality to price ratio. Food arrived quickly, was hot and filling, however it was not the quality we had hoped for at such an establishment. Also we were charged a 36 peso service fee for basic table service...which is not normal from what I've heard or experienced.

Found by accident 15 years ago. Just as good today. You will have to visit German to replicate the food experience

We noticed this restaurant while strolling on pedestrianized Lavalle and thought this might be a change from empanadas and steaks, so we tried to get there on a Saturday evening - but they were not open. In a Trip Advisor posting I read that they are only open for lunch, so we tried the next day for lunch, but it... More

It is hard to believe that this restaurant is located on such a busy pedestrian street. It is quiet, with good service and good food. German food, as well as beef, fish, etc. reportedly in business since 1929. Note that signs in the restaurant indicate it is only open from 12:00 (noon) until 5:00 pm.

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 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.
