We ate here on several occasions while in Buenos Aries. The look and feel to the place is great. Service always varied on who was working and how busy the place was. however the food was always good, and the Calamari was outstanding!

A typical old bar in the centre of the city, with good service, excellent picadas, and good location in Defensa Street. IdeAl for a Sunday when the market is at its peak. They take credit cards.
