Great casual restaurant

The casseroles are great. We ate here twice during a week long trip-- which says a lot about how good the food is. The pizzas weren't exactly to our taste (too thick of a crust) but the empanadas and stews are very filling and delicious. And of course the wine is affordable and delicious.

Another great meal in Recoleta. This time stew. I had lentil stew, and my wife had Caprese. Both were quite good. And the prices were amazing.

Dishes are prepared in large wood oven. Served on wooden plates or bowls. The locro is a must, in fact, we are going back tonight to try some of the other dishes that I would refer to as stews. The service was a bit slow, but in our waitress's defense, the place was packed. It's a good idea to get... More

I visited Cumana with my boyfriend, the food was lovely, I had grilled chicken in a spicy sauce that came with a side salad, it was beautiful. My boyfriend had a "small" calzone, it was a normal sized one if not bigger. Staff were very friendly and atmosphere was good. The food wasn't expensive as well! Definitely recommend if you... More

This was a nice place with nice ambiance but we saw someone get something stolen out of their purse. Admittedly it was on the back of her chair and wide open. This could happen anywhere in Buenos AIres though.

We went here based on the reviews, and because it was close to our hotel (Design Suites), we heard the Empanadas are great (true), and the pizza (not so true), definitely don't go for the pizza - it was average at best! (Try El Cuartito nearby), however the Casserole dishes were divine!! It was a bit of a welcome change... More

We ordered pizza! Very different from the USA since they used sliced tomatoes on top instead of the tomato sauce we are use to. A nice and different experience while travelling. We really liked the ambiance of this restaurant.

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.
