I took a good walk to get to this recommended steak restaurant. When I saw the menu I chose the chorizo steak (=sirloin) which in my past meat experience is tastier than filet (lomo). and potatos fritos and chard and vina de casa. After a long wait my food came. The steak, while reasonably tasty, was the toughest I ever... More

This place is the perfect size. It's not too big or small. Very good attention from the staff, excellent food and friendly priced menu. Will go again. Very close walking distance from the Loi Suites Recoletta

We stopped in at Rodi on our way to a long bus journey, and while it filled the gap, it wasn't anything special. There's a huge and quite exciting menu, but actually several of our top choices weren't available, and we ended up settling for some fairly standard options. Lovely staff and a reliable if unexceptional meal.

My wife and I had an excellent dinner a Rodi. The food was cooked as ordered, that is "a punto" for the beef which means rare. This was a problem at other restaurants but not at Rodi. We did not make a reservation but this was no problem on a weekday evening for us early eating Americans. The only negative... More

It would be unfair to say that Rodi Bar is a fantastic restaurant. It's not. We had lunch. My grilled chicken supreme was ok, nothing more, and my partner's ham and aubergine was even a bit of a disappointment. But despite all the tourists that have found their way here from the guide books, they've still managed to hold on... More

On our first night in Buenos Aires we were directed to the Rodi-Bar by our Hotel staff, in Recoleta. It was within easy walking distance and couldn't have been a better choice for us! It was wood panelled with lots of wood tables covered by crisp white linen and waiters wearing white aprons: very atmospheric, reminiscent of a previous era,... More

Great place for a non-pretentious, tasty meal in Recoleta. Great minestrone and gnocchi. The stews in the menu looked good as well. It was fun to eat surrounded by regulars in a space that transports you back decades in this wonderful Buenos Aires neighborhood.

Tripadvisor review sounded good, but I was disappointed. Waldorf salad and shrimp in garlic sauce - neither were great. My son liked his ojo de bife in mustard sauce. I guess you are safe to go with steak but not sure about anything else.

This is my "go to" meal in BA. Not many tourist. Small local place in Recoleta. Everything I have tried on the menu is good. If you want a great Argentine meal try the milanesa. Try it made with the tenderloin and you will not be sorry. Great steaks, argentine wines and the pasta ain't bad either. Excellent value for... More

Enjoyed a good meal here yesterday evening. The food was not as good as Fervor but still good value and service was good. It had a large local clientele and has been serving customers for years.
