We have been coming to Rodi for nearly ten years. And very little has changed. Very little needs to change. The same waiters providing the same traditional food. A great selection on the menu and always fabulous. The lunch time special makes the price super affordable. We miss the English translations in the menu. Oh there is still an English... More

The concierge at our hotel recommended a local restaurant with good meat. And he was right. We were hungry at an unconventional dining hour but were served immediately and the food was great

Local Recoleta restaurant that serves up great home made pasta. Very nice white table cloth bistro style Italian restaurant near the Center of Recoleta. Locals predominate with excellent attentive service. Fresh home made pasta with delicious sauces. Our bill came to $40 US with a split appetizer, two pasta entrees and a good bottle of Malbec. We will be back!

We stumbled upon this restaurant on accident and decided to try it, because it just looked quaint with the large windows and bustling atmosphere. I tried the 375ml of Gascon Familia Reserva Malbec and was not disappointed, as it was delicious. Make sure to try the provoleta, the sorrentinos and the filet mignon. We ate dinner around 11pm and it... More

This local restaurant in the Recoleta area serves up great dishes at reasonable prices. You see many locals there and you don't have to wait until 8pm to eat there as they are open early.

This was a fun restaurant - full of locals. The menu is huge and has lot of dishes we were unfamiliar with. There is no English menu here. The food was good but note the portions are humungous. I would suggest sharing. We didn't realize how much food there would be and felt bad that we left so much.

My husband, adult son and I ate here and all enjoyed the steak. There was not one bit of fat, the flavour was incredible, and it almost melted in our mouths. Our water was so friendly and helpful. We managed with very little Spanish on our part and no English on his part. The atmosphere is vibrant and friendly. Highly... More

Traditional restaurant in Recoleta. Kind of neighbourhood feeling. Mix of tourists and locals. Lots of "combinados" at excellent prices. House wine is good. Perfect place for a relaxed lunch after visiting the areA.

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
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 also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
