A great local dining experience

We went for dinner and fortunately arrived relatively early as the restaurant was full by 930. Our waiter was excellent and we took his suggestions from the wine to the main courses. There were mainly Portenos here and the atmosphere was lively. The food was excellent and a lot also. We didn't over... read more

Rodi Bar was recommended to us by our city tour guide and we stopped in for lunch. It was busy and had a good conversational buzz as people, a mix of families and couples, ate from a menu of standard Argentinian favourites. We were among the few tourists and that's a good sign. Service is efficient and the food was... More

This is a little treasure. You’ll find it very close to Recoleta Cemetery at Vicente López 1900. Great Argentinian food – good mixture and variety of dishes… but of course with super Argentinian steak. The staff were very friendly… Ricardo was particularly helpful. In the evening, it is always full and mostly with locals – but there’s generally no need... More

I always believe you can tell whether it's a good restaurant by the quality of their bread they are serving. Here is one of few places in BA serves nice brown bread. My boy friend and I have been here three times, a bit pathetic I know, but not if you want good steak with small price tag. Good house... More

This is a great little local place. The best part of it was the atmosphere. Although I was not in love with my meal, I liked it here. I ordered pasta and feel its unfair to compare Argentinean pasta to Italian pasta if I didn't like it. I enjoyed my server and people watching.

This isn't so much a bar as a full-service restaurant, with a huge menu and outstanding food. The gnocchi bolognese was a particular standout. It's small but packed, popular with the locals, so come on off-hours to be sure to get a table. This is the kind of neighborhood place I'd go regularly if I lived nearby.

Good sized meals and reasonable prices for the neighbourhood. Although there was some language barrier we enjoyed our meals and a more traditional lunch experience.

Rodi Bar was advertised as a place where there is home cooking and where locals go. This is exactly what it is. It is not a fancy restaurant and the food is simple and good. The waiters are very good and tell you that meat dishes can be shared. We ordered one salad, one starch and one steak and it... More

Another Fodor's restaurant recommendation that is a bust. I no longer trust Fodor's restaurant listings and will no longer use them. Rodi Bar is a typical Buenos Aires neighborhood bar/restaurant. It has atmosphere and is in a good area. The food we had was miserable. Went there per Fodor's my first night in Buenos Aires expecting to get a good... More

We went here because it was recommended and near our hotel. Atmosphere was nice. Service was fine. I had the 1/4 chicken and a mixed salad and enjoyed both. My son had a huge filet mignon and pile of mashed potatoes. Hubs had the ribs which were "ok". We shared a ice bottle of malbec. Prices were modest.

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.
