This is our favorite restaurant (probably in the whole world). Me and BF always comeback to this amazing restaurant as we believe is totally worth it. Everything tastes amazing and you pay for eating as much as you want (or can). Desserts are included and they are incredible... we already been there many many times and the quality doesnt disappoint... More

Excellent location. We didn't have a reservation and were seated promptly because at 8 pm when we arrived for dinner the restaurant was empty. The ambiance was excellent, everything was immaculate clean, our waiter was really nice and helpful. The stations were manned by cooks and assistants that knew what they were doing and gave me advice about what to... More

To be honest: I feel confy. It is a nice restaurant with a nice buffet where you finally feel like in a restaurant. When you enter you have a place for all salads and desserts then choose your table, there is plenty, spacious, clean, and if you on the left side (if you are looking to the street) then you... More

Some of our relatives who live in BA brought us to here our last night. We went in pretty skeptical as we've had many bad buffets in the past. The upside here is that even though it's a buffet, many of the hot items are made to order. It was also kind of fun eating sushi and chow mein while... More

Porteno is a buffet restaurant in the Puerto Madero area of Buenos Aires. They serve a lot of dishes made for you at your wish but you have to fetch it youself. Grilled fish, pasta, sallad, sushi and all kinds of grilled meat. After that a huge selection of desserts. Plan the meal carefully, tell the chefs exactly what you... More

Definitely not the best choice if you really want to appreciate Argentine meat. It's a buffet style restaurant, so the food, including the meat, sits there instead of being made to order. The empanadas were cold, the chorizo was dry and the service was not the best either.
