If you are looking for an old style, traditional restaurant that will transport you 50+ years to the past, this is it. The prices are very good, the service is ok (as expected when the waiters have been around almost as long as the restaurant). The food is also as expected, not great, edible, but it is memorable as an... More

This popular restaurant was close to our hotel and one night we decided to try it. The lomo a la pimienta was outstanding, as were the potatoes, sweetbreads and house red that rounded our meal. The ambiance is lively and the waiting staff is professional, courteous and patient with foreign tourists unfamiliar with Argentine cuts.

Loved this place. You can eat early without booking (until about 8) Fantastic char grilled steak - huge and very reasonable. I had a monster 20oz steak and great home cut fries and a glass if wine. The bill was £25/$32.

If you want to have a dinner close to your "microcentro" hotel and are tired for taking a taxi to Puerto Madero, this is the right choice. Good meat, wine,chorizo and so on. Good prices. They do not have or provide internet access (wifi). Amazing but they do not.

This restaurant rules....It is situated in Retiro area and exists already for decades. The atmosphere is pleasant, like a Parisien bistro. Service is impeccable but the true reason for coming here is the meat. I have been around but never had an Ojo de Bife so beautifully grilled on the outside and tender on the inside. Winelist is good and... More

I had the best Bife de Ojo in Buenos Aires, and the service was good and only few blocks from my hotel. I will recommend and always was full, that means the food is good.

The food was very good. We were only three patrons at the time since it was early by the country's standards. The service was not so good as I had to often get the waiter's attention for service. if you can wait without hurry, I recommend the food.

We went here for Christmas dinner and we couldn't have picked a better option. It was hard to find a restaurant open on Christmas and our hotel recommended it. We all had amazing steaks and 2 bottles of wine and dessert for 50$ CAD pp. great value great service and great food! Would go back in a heartbeat.

delicious rib eye and chimichurri in traditional setting. Close to our hotel and busy with tourists and locals alike, always a good sign!

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
