Cash Only, But Spend Some Here

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

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

Good Atmosphere and good service, I ordered a chorizo steak and it was hard and with no taste, good place for a couple of drinks and appetizer , maybe it wasn't my night but the food didn't taste good. Avoid.

Good value, elegant surroundings, and excellent service. Try the daily lunch specials for extra value. This restaurant specializes in traditional dishes from Spain.

Staying in Montserrat

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.
