“Unique Art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

If you're looking for an interesting afternoon and live in BA I highly recommend. If you're a tourist and want to avoid the touristy stuff in La Boca this is a nice respite. The art gallery is always changing - so check their schedule. The coffee shop upstairs is fairly typical and a bit coldish. I'd recommend a local coffee shop outside of La Boca if you're looking for a good caffeine fix. But this is perfect for a nice relaxing afternoon.

“Comfy place to have lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

We came here after reading reviews and found it very nice to relax on the couches outside.
I ordered something with couscous, thinking it was a steak but it was more like a strewed/marinated beef pieces. Nice but not really worth 75pesos.
The salad my wife got was good and the desert tasty also.

“Great new place in Boca”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Loved this place. The building is beautiful and offers great views over boca district. It's in Caminito, so very easy to get to. I walked back to San Telmo and even though a bit far away, it's an opportunity to see a not so touristy area of Buenos Aires. Giacometti exhibition was great. Good restaurant on the top floor.

“Mmm...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Superb service, they let us change tables after we had reserved on a weekend. It was pretty packed but we still got a table outdoors on the terrace. Oh, by the way, bring a jacket!. And the view! The food was great! The service was superb!

“Visit when you are in La Boca”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

PROA is housed in a very nice building in a very strange location. Its exhibition spaces are fairly limited for a building of its size, especially considering the cafe and library (really a bookstore) each take up a great percentage of a floor (the layout can be found here). General admission is 12 Pesos ($3) and student/educator admission is 8 Pesos ($2). This includes a guided tour (in Spanish) if you make arrangements to visit the museum to catch it. The exhibition that we attended was “Pop, Realismos y Politica.” When we paid our admission we were given a guide to the exhibition and some of the works in English that we had to return when we were finished. It was well written and helped us to understand the curator’s vision. Overall, the show was more or less interesting. Add to it the chance to experience the building itself and it was well worth the price of admission.
