Tucked away in the older part of the Business district Dada is a quaint little bar restaurant well patronised and well worth a visit. Either sit at the bar and enjoy a variety of Argentinian wines or take a table and have a more substantial meal. I had the Beef special and my partner the risotto. Both were cooked to... More

I love this little bar. I've been here several times, and what keeps me coming back is the atmosphere (casual after work bar); the service (the hostess/ waitress is always fabulous); the food (delicious and priced right). The bar is fabulously stocked. I completely recommend over many restaurants in the overpriced Puerto Madero.

This place is tucked away on San Martin, and is very small, but the food was incredible. Worth the time it takes to find!!!

We walked by this restaurant during the daytime and wanted to try it. It's super casual and we wanted a restaurant with some non-meat options. We had pasta which was good, and bife de lomo which was very good. It's kind of a hole-in-the wall, but it filled up quickly. Very inexpensive, good meal.

We went to a nearby bar and they recommended Dada. It's not a big space and it looks a bit old on the inside but that's its charm, so it had a cosy feel. The staff spoke English and helped us to choose our steaks and wine. Recommended.

We arrived in Buenos Aires on New Year's Eve and discovered this gem of a bistro just yards from our hotel on Calle San Martín. Everyone we met in Argentina has seen friendly polite and helpful and the owner and staff here were no exception. Paolo the owner was an exceptional host and Clara our waitress was wonderful! They made... More

We got there one evening (2 families with kids). They fit us all in one table (the only way our group could fit). A beautiful young lady who was the hostess/server was genuinely nice and extremely patient and went out of her way to help us order. Everybody in our group loved their food, and the desert (chocolate lava cake)... More

Looking at the reviews that this has got I feel very self-conscious in going against the general consensus. My only query to myself was whether I would give it two stars or just one. We called into this place in the late afternoon for a drink before heading back to our apartment for dinner. First impressions were poor. When we... More

We stopped in for lunch on a Saturday and it seemed the place was just opening - at 1 pm... This isn't that non-normal for BA, but it took a bit to get our order in. The pizza was one of the best we had in Argentina. For all the guide-book hoopla stating that the pizza, pasta and gelato in... More

Had a lovely meal in Dada Bistro last night. No tourists to be found there and a lively local clientele made for an animated meal. We chose the filet mignon which was cooked perfectly. The local Argentinian wine was excellent (both Pinot Noir and Malbec) and reasonably priced. Would definately recommend this place for a local dining experience.
