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

We went to Rodi Bar for lunch and had their empanadas and combi plates. Overall it was decent value for the serving size but the meal was not outstanding. I've had much better steaks around BA at around the same price range and we preferred the empanadas down the street at El sanjuanino.

Four of us went to this restaurant as we had read the reviews on Trip Advisor. At the time we had been in Argentina post-cruise and had out fill of great steaks. So we decided to have pasta at this restaurant instead of the steaks that were highly praised on this site. Big mistake! The pasta was awful. Way overcooked... More

I was in Buenos Aires two years ago with my wife and stumbled on this bar-restaurant in Recoleta. We liked it so much we had two dinners there; and when I had to go in January to Buenos Aires for one night, decided to go there again for dinner. I got there very early - 630pm - but they still...
