The person picking us up from the airport recommended Rodi Bar, close to our hotel. I can honestly say that I had the best steak I've ever had here, along with great chips. It was so good we went back two nights later. It is the kind of place that locals go to, but tourists are already beginning to be... More

It's a small place, and good for a light brunch or lunch. We tried the homemade spaghetti bolognaise and it was nice, they have a dish called hamburger, we thought it would be a sandwich but it turned out as a piece of burger on a plate with nothing with it. The whole experience was ok.

Great place to grab lunch since they have a "Menu of the day" which makes things more affordable. I had an excellent classic meal of steak 'n' taters. And always remember: ensalada does not mean lettuce salad in Argentina. Bonus: They're almost always playing ESPN on their TVs.

My friend and I had a great meal of salad, stuffed trout and boiled potatoes, and decent house wine, while surrounded by locals. The service was efficient rather than friendly, but that seemed appropriate for this bustling little place. I highly recommend it.

I read reviews that said the staff were grumpy, I found them friendly, fast and helpful with menu options. I liked this restaurant so much that I came back again for our last meal in Buenos Aires before catching our flight home. If you like steak, this is a great steak restaurant. It looked like they had other good seafood... More

Great local lunch hangout, worth a visit if you want to get off the tourist path for a few hours. Huge menu which includes English translation, but the staff mostly speaks Spanish . Only downside was slow service but that is the norm in BA.

We've driven past here several times and it was packed ( even late at night) so thought we'd give it a try for dinner as it was close to our hotel. And we were not dissapointed. My husband said the lomo fino was some of the best he's had in Argentina, my chicken with mushroom delicious. The spinach garlic side... More

This is a traditional Argentine bistro-bar-restaurant, serving hearty, traditional (but modest) Argentine food, with emphasis on steak and potatoes. The meat we had was not as good as that we've had elsewhere in other parillas in Argentina, particularly in Patagonia, where I suspect the beef is fresher and better cuts are generally available. The vegetables were spectacularly awful, absolutely unedible.... More

I really enjoyed this restaurant. The place was filled with locals. We came as soon as they opened and it quickly was full. My husband and I had steak. Delicious! I liked that they didn't put seasoning salt on it or at least not so much of it. I ordered a side of squash which was very good, but huge.... More

We dined twice at Rodi’s during or recent stay in Buenos Aires and had great food on both occasions. It’s very popular with locals – always an excellent sign – and there can sometimes be a short wait for a table. The waiters rush around energetically and everything seems to run like clockwork. We had excellent beef on both visits... More
