This is probably the very 1st TA Certificate of Excellence that I do not agree with. The only pros were friendly staff and very good food presentation. Cons are: too crowded, too loud, overpriced - dishes looked much better than tasted. Maybe in 2014 everything...More

A very friendly small place which is mainly, I think, frequented by locals for the terrific cocktails. But there is a decent menu at good prices and provided you are not looking for haute cuisine then it is worth a visit. Be warned though ,...More

Went there based on the excellent reviews. Small, narrow (don’t seat in the middle since you will be bumped all the time by waiters or patrons trying to squeeze in between your table and patrons at the bar). Very small menu, both meat orders, lomo...More

The food was definitely average. Ambiance is more like a bar. Go for the young in crowd. The steak was tough and fat. Price was not cheap. There are better ones not far from there.

The service was good, the food was average ! Nothing special in this place, probably I was expecting too much since it was a 4.5 stars place!

We arrived there and had a nice dinner. The staff was very helpful to entertain our kids. So 5/5 doe service. The Food itself was good, just not as good as another place we recently ate: Santo manjares. Hence the 4/5 Total instead of 5/5

I visited Dada at lunchtime and was very disappointed in the presentation and atmosphere of this apparent well known restaurant . The food was ok at best but the ambiance was depressing and dingy . The waitstaff had a look of pure boredom on their...More

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.

We arrived early both times we went there, so we didn't need a reservation. ("Early" in Buenos Aires isn't very early compared to the USA.)
