“Atmospheric San Telmo Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Bar Seddon was located down the street from our accommodation and we regularly stopped by the bar for an afternoon drink or pre-dinner drink. The bar has a nice relaxed atmosphere and the staff are very friendly. We also enjoyed a meal here one night - highly recommend the chicken cooked in mushroom sauce which was delicious. You can also get a cheap but tasty steak which goes down nicely with a glass of house malbec.

The best thing about this bar is the large open windows, allowing the beautiful balmy night air to filter in along with the sounds of San Telmo nightlife.

“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

What a great Bistro we found in a lovely quarter of Buenos Aires
European feel to it and friendly helpful staff
The food was international but with a real flavour of Argentina e.g Empanadas
We had good local wine and enjoyed our lunch here in quiet surroundings and in a beautiful part of the city

“Cute San Telmo lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

Stopped here after the Sunday market for lunch. The atmosphere was lovely and the location is ideal - right at the cobblestone streets with vendors selling art, crafts, leather, flea market goods. The interior is wood paneled and cozy, with a sizeable bar and jazz on the radio. The steak with chimmichuri was reported to be excellent, chicken ceasar salad was excellent, but skip the super thick pizza.

“Great lunch stop in San Telmo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

Atmospheric bar and restauarant right by El Zanjon (the historic house and tunnels). I popped in for a late lunch and had the charcuterie plate which, at about $45arg was a relative bargain compared to the other prices in the area! I had a nice assortment of meats together with olives, an eggplant and carrot caponata and some fresh bread. The place itself is very cool - straight out of Paris or Barcelona.

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Wow, what a place!! Here you really can get a piece of that famous San Telmo vibe. The ambiance is fantastic, you just feel at home immediately. The place invites you literally to stay longer and to linger and observe the people passing by, to chat with the friendly staff or other guests or to enjoy the homey features of the place. The service is great, thank you for making me feel so comfortable! And as well the food is fantastic, my compliments to the chef, the chocolate/passion fruit cake was a dream :) l'm already looking forward to come back to this place, it will be a must for my next visit to Buenos Aires!!!
