Great atmosphere, friendly staff, brilliant beer, oh and the burgers divine! My wife is vegetarian and loved her burger whichever something as she isn’t really a burger person. I got the special burger and it was perfectly cooked and full of flavour! So good we...More

Got to Buenos Aires in the evening and needed something to eat. This is a nice bar with loads of craft beers and easily the best hamburger I’ve had in my life. Definitely recommend. Prices are very decent too.

We went in and the music was very loud, people were sitting yelling at their dining companions. We had to fetch menus for ourselves as no staff member bothered to deliver any. Eventually the person behind the bar gesticulated (probably as it was hard to...More

Absolutely amazing burgers here. My girlfriend had a pumpkin veggie burger which she says is the best veggie burger she has ever had. The beefburger was really good too - cooked to perfection. Fun ambient place too and nice beers.

You must try the slow cooked lamb empanadas. I prefered the not so spicy one, but both are a great treat with their own IPA. This is high quality for the beer and food nerd.

I took a party of 8 to El Banco Rojo today. Every single person raved about their food. I had their burger of the day (Gordo Flaco), and it was just a hair below the best burger I've ever had in my life, and would...More

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both
locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee
hours of the morning. During the day, the antique
