I just needed a burger and wine and wasn't disappointed. Huge, excellent burger with fries and a very good Malbec wine. Service was quick and no hassles. Exactly what I wanted.

The pinnacle of luxury. Have nothing bad to say about this place not to mention its part of the "Hotels of The World". I just love coming for a drink or a bite to eat to the Alvear.

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
