Nice Peruvian Japanese Restaurant

Wanted to try something different in Buenos Aires, I tried this nice fusion restaurtant with a taste of japanese and peruvian gastronomy. Nice food, nice service, I advise to phone and reserve, especially on Friday and Saturday evening.

I had never tried Peruvian food but was delighted with the cuisine and Sipan. The ambiance is that of an upscale modern American restaurant- very trendy, low lighting, natural. We ordered a number of dishes to share. The amuse bouche of octupus was incredible (even if you are skeptical of octopus, you should try it!) we tried the pepper chicken,... More

A slightly hidden gem up a short flight of steps and (surprisingly) right off Florida Street. Sipan is hip,gracious and the fare is absolutely delicious. A nice and knowledgeable waiter helped us make selections because it is an unusual cuisine. He recommended an "empanada" and we nearly declined since there are empanadas all over Buenos Aires...but this was like nothing... More

If you love ceviche and other fish dishes, or just a variety of well seasoned and beautifully presented food, then you will want to try Sipan Peruvian restaurant. Most of the food here is Buenos Aires is bland and tends to be primarily meat (the assados and parillas are good here) but the natives do not like well seasoned or... More

Excellent Peruvian food and service!! A little bit pricey!! The ceviche is great. Service was a little slow, but the place was crowded. Reservations are a must.

Sipan was recommended by our Hotel concierge. It did not disappoint! After eating Italian and Argentinian for 4 nights in a row, SIPAN offered our families a yummy break from the standard Argentinian fare. The cuisine was a tasty melange of Japanese/Peruvian food. The menu is in Spanish only, so after a few failed attempts at figuring out our choices,... More

After trying and loving (twice) the SIPAN at the Palermitano hotel we decided to try the SIPAN in downtown. The food is also splendid. Won-tons, ceviche, you name it. Be ready for an extraordinary eating experience. We found out that Chardonnay wine matches well ceviche...Amazing. Service is on the slow and careless side. Will not open before 8pm. And will...

We wanted some sushi while in BA so tried Sipan since we had read about it. The food was quite good when it finally arrived, but the service was terrible and they were not busy!

Every time I come to Buenos Aires this is one of my stops, the fish is great and the portions are enough for two. Full recommend the catch of the day with Chorrillana sauce. Also the entrees are great , I tried the Tiradito and the flavor was amazing. My only suggestion will be to add more selection of beers,... 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.
