One of the best restaurants, service was perfect (Mr. Tigre really nice) and the food, big portion, perfect meat, pasta, dessert! That's a place where argentine people are used to, not just tourists, what makes it more interesting!!! I intend to go back as soon as I can!

A traditional restaurant with local history and photos of old famous customers. Went for lunch 2 times and found a special self service table with unique price on sunday, very good option, also with the a la carte if you prefer. Local people and old customers are frequent. Best restaurant in the neighborhood

This place was nice with friendly staff. It was equivalent to pizza express for the English among you.

We ate here twice because the food is really solid. Good cuts of meats, huge plates and good service. Our waiter Hector was kind and made good recommendations in terms of food. he was kind and fun. This place is not cheap. Actually its average American prices here and lots of tourists. Come hungry, leave happy!

Foods are very good here reasonably priced. Service is good too but if you do not know Spanish then you might unintentionally "lose" some savings. We ate there 3 times, the first 2 times we paid the full price in cash plus 10% tips. But the last time, the English speaking server told us that since we pay cash, they... More

I ate here several times as I was working nearby. Steaks were very good. Buffet was decent but sometimes it didn't look too fresh. A fairly good restaurant for this area. Seems popular with locals.

One of the most traditional spots downtown Buenos Aires, the Chiquilin offers a wide range of options in the menu. Highlights are Italian dishes and meat from the "parrilla". But the star is the "bife the chorizo", the best one I ever had. Since a close friend took me there for the first time a few years ago, I always... More
