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.

If you are traveling with a group and ask your guide for a restaurant recommendation it is unlikely he will recommend Dada, either he does not want to share this hidden gem or because he does not know about it. If you want a typical tourist restaurant do not go here, but if you want more local flavor this is... More

A bar bistro from afternoon till 3.00 am . Reservation is a must if you want to be seated quickly between 19.00 pm and midnight. It is a very busy, very noisy, very crowded, Parisien style bistro. Good cooking, good ingredients, tender meats and good home made pastas, desserts. Wine list is good too. Service very nice and efficient, ONCE... More

It is just SUPERB. I had the most memorable romantic dinner with my boyfriend last year in Buenos Aires. The place just looks fantastic. The meat is really beyond words. The wines are just too good. And everything for a very very reasonable price. I think you can't ask more of a restaurant. Did I mention the staff? Super friendly!... More

We recieved some ridiculously bad news, so decided to head to Dadá for cocktails and a meal. As usual the cocktails were good and well prepared, classic margarita and a mojito that looked like the herbs were growing in it, tasty. The Lomo Mediteraneo really surprised me though, right to the last bite. A nice cut of beef with mushrooms... More

Wondered if we were in the right place until the food came. We never saw the cook, but her/his results are delicious to the last smidgen. Tiny but relaxed place. Great for lunch downtown. Note: it's Calle San Martin, not Avenida San Martin if you take a taxi!

The restaurant is quaint and small, but with a fun atmosphere. The customers are young and local. Our waiter was very knowledgable and provided excellent service. The salmon was to die for.
