Good food, reasonably priced

We went on a Saturday night when happy hour was still in effect. We both had a couple of drinks and shared the marinated chicken skewers and a salad. The food was good, nicely prepared and presented and the bill was $386 AR. The service was friendly and helpful and though there was music it was not... read more

The famous Recoleta cemetery is not far from this bar so after a wet afternoon of grave viewing, we needed a drink. Good ambience, long happy hour and plenty of drink variety. Worth a stop on your way back to your hotel. For a full video featuring footage of hotels, restaurants, and other tourist traps see other postings on Tripadvisor... More

We were looking for somewhere casual to have a quick dinner after a long day doing a tour in the country. We came across Portezeulo which was having a happy hour (which ran for 3 hours from 6pm to 9pm). We ended up having a few beers each and the degustacion platter to share. The beers were cold and refreshing,... More

Two stakes ruined. One overcooked sent back. Next one so rare it was still frozen in middle. Asked if I wanted to try a third. Passed. Asked if I wanted fish or chicken...and you know my response...In Argentina one would likely eat beef. Turned down complimentary third choice and desert. Never ro return

On my last night In Buenos Aires ,stumbled on this restaurant.After ordering alot of diaster meals i was pleasantly surprised. The grilled chicken with blue cheese risotto was perfect. The sirloin steak was cooked to the requested rare. Service was quick and efficient with the waiter understanding English. Well worth a meal here

Outstanding drinks selection, the bar has around a thousand bottles behind the bar. The drinks menu has 2 pages of whiskeys, 2 pages of tequilas, 2.5 pages of vodkas. You get the idea, if you want it they most likely have it. Cocktail waiter made a brilliant margarita (or 3). Had a hot mixed seafood platter at the bar which... More

The inviting rustic wood interior reminded me of the northern California bay area. The two story interior, with the first and second levels tiered, gave it a four level appearance with an open atrium view between the upper and lower sections. There is a full bar with a great selection of spirits, bottled beer and on tap. In the back... More

My husband and I just stumbled across this bar after leaving the Recoleta Cemetary....just a short stroll away. The inside is awesome! The service was top notch and the drinks were a great price for happy hour. They have every liquor you could imagine! It was very clean and they had good club music playing but not too loud or...

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
