My husband does not eat meat and this is the perfect restaurant for him. The seafood menu was extensive and the serving huge. Just like a lot of restaurant in BA it is dated but with the charm of European café except that this one was big and very busy. Pricing is inexpensive compared to the serving size. I forgot... More

Came on a recommendation and had a great night. Excellent service, tasty food (but steak a bit overdone). Would definitely recommend. A good place to park up for the night and enjoy yourself. Arrive early if you want a table.

Came here for a casual dinner by myself, staff were friendly and food was fresh and delicious. The menu is slightly over whelming! But would definitely come back.

This is a large place and so popular that it was packed! We arrived before the crowds and consider it one of the best places we found in Buenos Aires. The menu was extensive and the portions large. Wine was inexpensive, the service attentive, and the atmosphere fun-filled and festive. Favorite dishes were a rice and chicken dish and a... More

The outside of Plaza Asturias isn't very inviting but once you're inside high quality service makes impression. You get very interesting welcome snack and you need a long while to study very rich menu. You can choose depending on your taste and wallet but be sure that it doesn't have to be expensive to be delicious and unforgettable. Very good... More

Another restaurant I frequent often when in Buenos Aires, this time a great diappointment with my favorite dish: Fabada Asturiana. Tasteless/rubbery beans, the chorizo way too salty, small portions of the "compango" a disaster for the palate, sorry.

The welcome aperitif was not pleasant, and our salmon serving was large but really dry. The service was great. ... Would not return;)

I came here to eat on my own and it was the perfect place - plenty of locals dropping in and a good selection of tourists too - but mainly speaking Spanish - helps if you have some, although the English menu is available. A real hustle and bustle to the place and a good atmosphere. I stayed with Parilla... More

We happened on this restaurant. It is very large so lacks any sense of intimacy. The wait staff are very pleasant. And, the restaurant provides complimentary before and after dinner drinks..of their choice, of course. But, the quality of the food is mediocre. We had the tenderloin..overcooked, a little tough, and swimming in the sauce. And, we had a shrimp... More

Very little went well in this large and largely empty restaurant on a Sunday night. My waitress spoke no English and I no Spanish. She sought no help (in fact I got the distinct impression areas were zoned and no help would be given) and a nearby customer produced just enough English to sort out that I could eat no... More

Staying in Montserrat

Neighborhood Profile
Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighborhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
