On a side street off Calao serving mostly locals. Good food and service. Not fancy, but great for people watching.

I did my research on TripAdvisor prior to arriving in Buenos Aires in February 2015 and it really paid off. After disembarking our cruise ship and taking a BA hop on hop off tour, we grabbed a taxi and headed to Rodi Bar. The taxi driver took us to Recoleta Cemetery which turned out to be fine as it was...

While not the best steak I've ever had, it was by far the best $10 US dollars I've spent on a meal. I ordered the # 18 off the specials menu which included a salad, yams and a steak with a egg on top. All very tasty, my wife had the #17 which had sliced tomatoes and hard boiled eggs,... More

We stayed quite close by this restaurant, which is also conveniently located near the Recoleta Cemetery, and stopped in for a "lunch" (it was after 5pm, but hey it's BA, they eat late), and was surprised that we were the only tourists there. It's a welcoming, cafe style looking restaurant, filled with locals, and after ordering the steak can understand... More

Offering a widely varied menu with extremely reasonable prices and polite & efficient service this is an excellent restaurant. The ambiance is nice - the tables are not crowded - one is not rushed - the portions seem to all be for two or more - noise level not excessive Great find

A nice little place with good if not brilliant steak. The salad was just tomato and egg which was not to my taste but was ok. The place itself was busy and had a nice atmosphere with small tables very close together. Prices very good especially for the lunchtime specials, just AR$ 85.

This restaurant is located in the Recoleta area, and was recommended to me by AV, a local in Buenos Aires who knew I was traveling and dining alone on my recent visit. I arrived around 8:00 PM, indicated that I was dining alone, and was shown to a table already set for one. When I got there, the restaurant had... More

Rodi was conveniently located very close to our hotel, and it seemed to be crowded with locals so we gave it a try. We had a decent salad and nice pieces of beef (much larger portions than Americans typically eat). Tables are close-set, so we stood out a bit among the locals surrounding us, but we definitely got a feel... More

By the large number of patrons we decided to try this local eatery. Be prepared to eat as the servings at lunch are huge. We had the chicken and rice and a dish that had 2 large slices of tenderloin served with a mountain of potatoes and steamed vegetables. From the people around us it looked like the steaks were...

Unpretentious , local atmosphere and locals make the place worthy. Noisy and traditional, you will enjoy if like to experience the real atmosphere of the Recoleta. The food is good, wines and beers also. Great place for a table with lots of friends.
