Nice ambiance with very good service. It was really nice to have the option of something other than meat. The fish and seafood were excellent. This restaurant is located in a magnificent hotel in a great area.

Having had beef for the past 10 days while in South America, I would not rank this as excellent. The service is excellent, the sommelier knows his stuff, the wine list is impressive. The TBone was average, the stuffed potato was dry and overcooked. The...More

Retiro
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

I would think it is buffet plus ordering ala cartel as their regular breakfast is a choice of either or.

Description
When simplicity is truly authentic, it conveys the superb quintessential spirit of the product. This is what we aimed to create while designing Elena's menu. We place absolute importance on the search to find every impeccable ingredient. Proud believers of the farm-to-table philosophy, our iconic charcuterie and cheese platters - paying homage to the Argentine picada - are locally sourced, carefully selected and coming from the country's best farms. The Argentine beef, a driving influential force throughout the entire menu, undergoes the old method of dry aging the meat, aging the beef properly in a highly controlled environment to provide a steak with the utmost quality where the bursting flavors are concentrated and achieve the perfect texture. We pay tribute to our grandmother's cooking with hearty dishes like pastas and osso buco. Through unconventional cooking techniques using a char-broiler and rotisserie spit grill, our food achieves a distinct ideal consistency. At Elena, we carefully and purposefully have thought out every last detail: from the water which is purified and filtered in house, the bread basket which includes homemade sourdough made from our own starter, the elegant coffee cups, and even down to the best sugar and flour for our coffees accompanying petit four. Elena has its roots deeply entrenched into the heart of the local culinary scene. And, from here, conquers the entire world.
