You a looking for Argentina’s flavors, you must go to this restaurant. It’s a little place with a good environment to talk with your friend. Taste the Bife de Chorizo and Entraña.

A good meal in a rather run-down building but whenever a waiter utters the word tip I immediately mark the restaurant down.

I'm coeliac and I explained as I entered that I need gluten free food ("sin gluten" or "sin TACC" as they say here) and they brought gluten-free crispbread instead of the regular bread that's usually brought in a restaurant here. We ordered 1/2 grilled steak...More

Look, this is the place where locals go. It is absolutely hardcore "Porteno" (from Buenos Aires). You will see how Argentinians eat, and how they eat. Just come for Provoleta, Morcilla, Molleja, Bifes, the real thing. Great place, great tradition, at a very good price.

Authentic looking restaurant with smartly dressed staff and mid range prices. We got there about 8.30pm and it was fairly quiet, but gradually filled up. We ordered starters followed by bife chorizo. Unfortunately the steak arrived when we were only half way through the starters....More

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.
