This is a neighborhood place that we always forget to go to. The food is mediocre at best. Sometimes better. Lately we want to go to places that take credit cards. It's just easier than paying cash all th time. And it's a law in Argentina that all public restaurants have to accept one type of credit card. This place... More

Really nice, old fashioned restaurant with attractive interior. Tried several starters and fish. Very tasty. Also ordered not expensive malbec, which was just excellent. Will visit the place one more time for sure. Non touristic, quite street.

A wonderful old-fashioned restaurant run by a group of hip young managers and cooks. The cook speaks English, and they have an English menu. Some nights include live music. The food is fabulous!!! The service is very friendly. Reservations are absolutely necessary for the weekends unless you go early. They open at 8:30 PM.

Came recommended from a local - very good food, staff were the best part. We travelled from San Telmo for it - are there better restaurants probably, but if you are nearby, check it out. Nice piano as well accompanying the meal on Mondays/TueDays

With that stylish vintage decor that BsAs does so well, PiPi Cucú is dimly lit was and enchanting mix of antique furniture and DIY dressings. Most importantly, The food was delicious, standing as the best meal I had this trip. Starting with fresh olive bread,... More

It is very, very rare that I find a restaurant where EVERYTHING is great. We ordered drinks and they were perfect. We ordered food and it was perfect. And service was nice, friendly and expeditious. And all this in a great ambiance. I actually discovered this restaurant walking around the neighborhood. The bar is great, as I watched the bartender... More

I found this restaurant a few years ago while waiting for a tour on graffiti to begin a few blocks away. This is my favorite Monday spot for lunch. It is such a great deal and I always add an appetizer. I have had both the risotto with fungi and the ravioli for lunch. Yesterday, for dessert I had the... More
