Decided to try El Estrebe because it was a short walk from our hotel. The minute we walked in we knew it was a very popular "local" restaurant and not another "tourist trap"! Everyone who came in was obviously a repeat customer. Lots of greetings...More

Not fancy and good fast service. Had a salad with an awesome meat. Everything was really fast and perfect. Could be a little more decorated. It is also a little expensive to what offers

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

Neighborhood Parilla with excellent food and service. Wide menu for a parilla and decent wine carte. Ojo de Bife was actually rare, as requested. The Estrebe salad was the best we have ever had in BsAs. Really enjoyed the meal.
