I went there 13 August 2015. Evening around 8 pm. Service is really poor. They hardly understand English. The meat is not what you can expect in Buenos Aires. Don't waste your dinner with this restaurant. There are many others for the same money

I absolutely loved this restaurant. They have a huge selection of wine so it is not easy to choose. But never fear, all choices are great! I loved the meat here as well as their bread pudding dessert with dulce de leche. What else can a girl ask for? If in Buenos Aires, I highly recommend this restaurant. Very good... More

This restaurant was recommended by 2 Argentine friends as being fantastic. Personally, I thought it was good but not great - probably worth a 3.5 out of 5. I am lucky enough to have dined at some great restaurants so maybe I am spoilt. We had booked a table for 2 and ended up at a table for 6 -... More

This is one of the best places to have the famous Argentinean BBQ. The place is located in a wonderful almost downtown area near to the luxury brand shopping mall "Patio Bullrich" and next to the Four Seasons Hotel. The neighberhood is called "Recoleta" and that place in particular Argentineans call it "la zona de Alvear" that would be "Alvear... More

There is not a single criticism I can bring as everything from service to each food item was never less than perfect. Truly one of the best meals i ever had.

Compared to most restaurants in BA this is hard to beat. I guess there are better ones but I'm sure they'd be more expensive. Despite what some reviews say this is NOT Expensive, 3 courses, wine and coffee for 3 people £70 ($100) is amazing, especially as the food is fantastic. We had some chorizo and morcilla, gorgeous, the beef... More

While the empanadas were some of the best we had, the rest of the food was just good. Nothing to write home to mom about. the lomo was a little overcooked and lacked in seasoning, but the sides were excellent. We definitely got a look when we walked in without a reservation though...

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
