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.

We went to Rodi Bar on our last night in Buenos Aires, It was near our hotel and also offered Gluten Free food. The place is small with a homely, comfortable and unassuming ambience. We were glad we got there just in time as the tables began to fill up with groups of tourist and locals. People were waiting outside... More

I don't remember how we found this restaurant, but it quickly became a favorite. I'm in love with their cheesy eggplant entree and milanesa napolitana as main course. Give it a shot i you're in BA!

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
