This former harbor area has been renovated and upgraded into an area for dining and walking a promenade. Most restaurants seem Italian. The atmosphere of the harbor has been preserved. Eye catchers are the museum ship and Calatrava bridge. Not many people seem to live in this area on walking distance of Plaza de Mayo and during the day the... More

One place you should take a afternoon to walk around, finishing the visit at any restaurant close to the river. Loved the view of modern buildings among historical architecture.

It's a tried (yet in my opinion, not always true) recipe: grab an old piece of unused historic dockland, convert the warehouses into shops and restaurants, keep a couple trappings like cranes and piers, then sell the land around it at a premium for office development and apartments. Strong feeling of deja vu when visiting.

Had a lovely meal and evening on the river. Fortunately, the weather was mild and had a nice walk along the pier and across the Women's Bridge. It is a stunning area with lots of nice restaurants and very safe.

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighborhood Profile
Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect combination of old and new. The river provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away. Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this neighborhood a unique destination in a city as busy as Buenos Aires. The restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the docks make it a prime spot for nights out and have come to symbolize this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
