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.

There is plenty of food like all kind of salads, even some seafood. You have a place to get meat (parrilla), other for pastas, other for sushi (not so great sushi but ok for not a sushi place), another for pizzas and other for all kind of hot meals of the day. Deserts are in another place, and there is... More

Very expensive for what they offer. Bad service, bad entrees, pretty bad meat.. A glass of orange juice goes for no less than 48 pesos. You have to get up and ask for a piece of meat, and have to keep getting up to go and see if it is ready. When I wanted a second piece, they wouldn't make... More
