Big plates, good food, decent prices. Casual place, packed all day long; fast service, huge menu. Try the milanesa napolitana (breaded thin steak with ham and cheese on top).

Always packed with locals; tried it while walking around. Prices are mid-range yet platters are huge.

This is an okay spot for a variety of Argentinean classics, including milanesas, but nothing is spectacular and there are much better options in the area.

The place was crowded and really noisy so having a conversation was hard. The attention was not good as the waiters were too busy all the time. The quality of the milanesa was poor and the dessert was not good. A bad overpriced option.

The portions are big, the seasoning is good, but the prices are a bit high. The location per se is good, choose to eat inside, outside is a chaos. The restrooms are HORRIBLE.

Just good. Food is OK. Service is better. 12 page menu makes it hard to decide what to eat. Multiple options.

This is not downtown BsAs, thus don't expect to find tourists or tourist attractions nearby. If you want to do what the locals do, this is your spot. The locale is ample and well lighted, in a busy street. Waiters were quite nice and friendly;...More

As one of the main commercial hubs of Buenos Aires,
Belgrano has something for everyone. The myriad of
shop windows in Cabildo Ave. will draw you in, but it
is Chinatown — an area of no more than two square
blocks — which will keep you hooked. Crowned by an
ornate arch marking its entrance and filled with small
stores packed to the brim, it is a place where color
and scent emanate from every corner, particularly
