We went to Basa for a quick lunch. I had the Charbroiled “arañita”, it was absolutely perfect. The wine list is impressive with a good selection of Malbecs. We will definitely go back

This is an interesting little bar that is good for people watching. We sat and had a drink while watching people trying to pick up other people and men and women working to impress each other. Fun way to finish our evening!

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
port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest.

A meal with wine will cost you a average of 1000 pesos (65 USD). This is one of the best restaurants of Argentina. I recomend you to try it.
