We ordered the empanadas... oddly they tasted like spaghetti.. I didn’t like the sauce of the meat. It also dripped of oil. My husband ordered the kidneys... he took 1 bite and immediately stopped. He couldn’t bear the taste.

We stopped for lunch. The place was packed at 2pm. The majority of patrons were eating the parilla, but there were also sandwiches and salads. The food was excellent and the clientele was local. The atmosphere was lively. We will definitely go back.

Characterized by the French-style mansions which are
the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the
true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this
neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos
Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment
buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions
turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude
an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll
