It's a very well located pub, with tasty food, good drinks, very good music, and the atmosphere is really warm. Friendly service, and security at the entrance (good detail).

Cool place, nice location, but really tons of shady people, prostitutes type, probably because there are so many "clubs" in the area. Will never return.

I enjoyed the environment, the drink and the food, the chorizo steak is perfect, it's well worth knowing.

This is a great place to do people watching, get excellent service and good local food at a reasonable price. Also the location is great, accross the street from the famous Recoleta Cementry and in a safe and fun part of town. A good couples place for a drink, snack or full meal, with music, candles and friendly people.

A great bar that has good music and TV screens. Drinks reasonably priced and the bar has a good buzz about it. Try the tapas, they are better than acceptable for a bar.

The lighting is subdued, the atmosphere is very laid back. There was a selection of languages around the room. An eclectic, classy vibe. Perfect to meet with friends. I have had the food a few times and frankly, there are better places to eat, but for a meeting place for drinks and then see what happens, you can't beat it.... More

You don't see what you're drinking or eating and in any case, the food looks just like any other standard junk food. The music is OK but inside the restaurant is too noisy. Probably is better to sit outside in spring or summer, that's lovely but still, the only safe drink I recommend is beer. Good for after office, some... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
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 also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
