I have been here many times. But, once in BsAs. It is a must. Great steak and wine. We had a a flank steak rare. Provençal french fries, chorizo and empanadas. Everything was perfect. Price was fare. Recommend.

We chose El Mirasol for our first dinner in Buenos Aires, and it did not disappoint. Our party of 4 ordered the provoleta "La Recova" for an appetizer, then the creamed spinach and Provençal french fries as sides. We were extremely satisfied with these dishes. We also ordered vegetables, but it wasn't the star of the meal. All four of... More

I initially intended to go cross the street at Juana M. Unfortunately they only open at 8pm, which was a bit late for me, so I went to el mirasol. To tell the truth, I had a very correct lomo, but for the price I paid, that was the least I could expext. The welcoming is very impersonal, almost indifferent.... More

One of the top barbecue places in Buenos Aires, El Mirasol, its a popular place within the business environment and the top class tourism. It offers, big portions to share, a great service, a very complete and well priced wine carte and top of the line meat cuts. Since my father was in town, coming here was one of his... More

My personal opinion is these are the best steaks in Buenos Aires. The empanadas and the salads are delicious. Please note that the side orders and the salads are for sharing. Easily two portions per order. Great location with other very good restaurants. They comp your parking so don't forget to get your ticket stamped. The prices are high but... More

El Mirasol has a high rating. Unfortunately our experience were different. Two of us ordered ribeye steaks and one of us ordered short rib, all to be cooked medium rare. The ribeye steaks were disappointing - dry and fibrous. This was because there were very little marbling on the meat. However, the restaurant was very decent and only charged us... More

The restaurant was well recommended by a friend. This unit its located in a very nice area (Recova) and walking distance from the best hotels. The food was nice (special mention to the spanish fries) the ambient is very elegant but the service was not very friendly and helpful.

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
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. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
