Comfortable neighborhood spot

We were looking for fish, and that's what we got! I'd suggest you'd research what sort of fish you'd like before arriving as the menu is full of many we'd never heard of. Beware, the tuna can be very full of bones. We had excellent service, though that might be a challenge for non-Spanish speakers... read more

We went to Plaza Asturias on the recommendation of our host. The waitress did not speak much English, We asked for the English menu. When the bill comes, the price of each item we ordered is more than was listed. It is absolutely cheating! a 50 peso half bottle of wine becomes 65, table service becomes 35 instead of 24,... More

Extensive menu, decent price, good service. Never had a bad meal. Excellent vale, abundant portions. Careful seating at a window - attracted unsavory characters.....

Probably the most extensive menu in town with many exotics and good service. Like most restaurants in BA, you can get a bottle of pretty good wine relatively inexpensively to compliment your meal. This is a good place to indulge your tastes.

We at at the Plaza Asturias three times during our ten days in Buenos Aires. Obviously we liked it a lot. We had excellent, friendly service from the staff. And then there was what the Argentines call "table service," the stuff that shows up without your ordering it: At the Plaza Asturias that mean not only bread and spread, but... More

This place is on my Must Visit List every time I visit Buenos Aires. I've been there quite a few times and still there is so many dishes to explore. The place is wildly popular with locals and for very good reasons. There is a huge menu and very professional service. To many good dishes to mention.Just be brave and... More

We enjoyed a good and plentiful paella and the outstanding and friendly attention of its hostesses. The environment is very warm, with pictures, paintings, hams, wines all hanging from the walls, creating a special atmosphere that sets the tone of the experience. As the friendly hostesses guide you to your table, she serves a complimentary liquor to help you decide... More

Our food was good, service was good, restaurant is pleasant. One word of caution --- portions are HUGE. This is not a bad thing, just something to be aware of. Order one dish for two people. We felt badly about not realizing this and ended up wasting a lot of food. This is perhaps something the wait staff should mention... More

Neighborhood Profile
Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighborhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
