One of the finest in Buenos Aires. Traditional style and ambience,great service from hugely knowledgeable staff. The menu very broad,must be every cut available❗️ Quite delicious. Excellent wine list and quite reasonable prices. Looking forward to my next visit.

My son and I were traveling and went to El Mirasol on the recommendation of our hotel. The service was attentive, food excellent and ambiance very nice. We had a sausage for an appetizer, then split 2 different steaks upon the recommendation of our server. Plenty of food and very good. Thanks for a great evening!

Pleasantly surprised when we walked into a local steakhouse underneath the 9 de Julio bridge right by the Four Seasons Hotel in Recoleta. The bife de chorizo a punto with a mixed salad, parmsean cheese and balsamic salad dressing along with provezal frites with a nice bottle of Cabernet/Malbec wine were absolutely wonderful. The service was great both times we... More

I have seen this place many times and never stopped in. My mistake. Very good meat, probably the best chorizo I've had in BA. The ojo d'Bife was EXCELLENT - very juicy and flavorful. Very good bread basket as well. Didn't care so much for the Milanesa breading - way too dry. Not nearly as expensive as I thought, though.... More

This restaurant easily deserved to be top 20 in BA. It has some of the best meat in the world prepared just right. They also have an excellent wine list and service is top notch.

We chose this restaurant by chance and absolutely no regrets. Had a rib eye steak which was one of the best steaks ever. Cut like butter and melt in the mouth. Accompanied by fries and good wine, a recommended visit.

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

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
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 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.
