What a beautiful interior! Felt the slightest bit kitschy, but it was beautiful inside and felt as though my friend and I travelled back to the early 20th century. Stained-glass windows, lots of food (tea-time style), and a wide array of people (groups of families, friends, or couples on dates all around us) made for a really unique coffee date.... More

You may have to wait but worth it. Come very hungary. We had the platter with the cakes and sandwiches. Enough to feed a family.

I visited Buenos Aires for a family reunion and went to this cafe for dinner with my husband's family members that used to live in BA. People seem to have mixed reviews but I personally had a great experience and I highly recommend this place if you are visiting BA for the first time. The one thing I highly recommend... More

I made a special trip to this café which I had visited before, It is so elegant and grand. I had a coffee and pastry which was very nice. The service was good and it was enjoyable just sitting and watching other people and the staff enjoying the atmosphere.

I came here because the reviews said it was a must and also a friend who lived in Buenos Aires said I had to have breakfast here. So only day that I did not have anything planned, I walked to Las Violetas for breakfast. It had the charm of an old establishment and asked for a table. I ordered the... More

The best restaurant I have visited in Buenos Aires. The staff are friendly and attentive, and the food is delicious. It has beautiful settings, in a traditional cafe. Plus complementary champagne!

If you're in the area, check it out, but don't go out of your way to make a special trip. The alfajores were not the best I had in Argentina and the room wasn't as pretty as I had hoped. Seemed like a tourist trap, but the waiters were very friendly.

Las Violetas is a great place. Despite having to walk for miles to find it, I was glad that I did. It was worth the effort. Old world charm and sophistication, but in no way is it stuffy or elitist: this is not a museum, it is obviously much frequented and loved by locals. I arrived at 16.10, ten minutes... More
