Been there with my girlfriend for our third aniversary. The hotel is gorgeous and full of personality. The food was great! We had sweetbreads (mollejas), entails (entraña) and chocolate dessert. And no, it was not toooo expensive. Have a good one!

From its refurbished red brick buildings and port
cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious
apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect

quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the
hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away.
