This place was a favorite of my parents in the 50s and 60s and of other relatives visiting Buenos Aires in the following decades. It is definitely not great anymore.

Place needs a renovation but it is worth the trip for the variety of French fries only. Rest of food was just okay. Service was excellent. Bar menu limited. Prices high.

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub migrates to Corrientes Ave.,
