Best $10 meal I've had

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,... read more

True neighborhood resto. No tourists. All locals. Waiters don't speak English but menu has translations for all items. Waiters are all very friendly. Had the rib steak. Most excellent. Will definitely be back.

We stumbled across this small family restaurant after visiting the Recoletta Cemetry. We had a group of 14 people which they went out of their way to accommodate. The restaurant was packed but the service was brilliant. The food and drink all arrived quickly and the waiters suggestions were all excellent. Eating here (3 nights in a row) confirmed to... More

This is how Argentineans eat everyday. I am myself a local living abroad, I enjoy eating at El Rodi when visiting Buenos Aires.

This was a restaurant recommended by a local. We ordered lunch off the lunch special menu. The lunch cutlet and the bone in beef were very tasty and nice portions. The sides were also great. Service was great. Good wine choices. Would definitely go again.

This place is a very reasonable option if you're dining out in Recoleta. Our waiter seated us quickly. Took a fairly long time to take our order but it was lunchtime and busy. He then proceeded to take 8 food and drink orders without writing anything down. We were understandably nervous but very impressed when everything turned up as ordered!... More

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...

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

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.
