“A beautiful mall in the middle of downtown”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

A believe the architecture and ceiling paintings are more impressive as the mall itself, but still there is a decent variety of stores.

“Very unimpressive...a must miss”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012 via mobile

If you are from a big city or have been to a big city, there is nothing to say about this shopping mall. No great stores, no great items to buy. Just look at the exterior and walk on by. Calle Florida is more impressive, and more crowded.

“just go to look at the building”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

the building is gorgeous so its worth taking a look, but don't buy anything there. This mall is made for gullible tourists that don't know any better. The high prices are outrageous, Try walking on Av. Santa Fe or go to Palermo Soho to shop.

“One of expensive shopping malls of Buenos Aires”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

The prices are very expensive even if you compare them to other malls like Abasto or Santa Fe Street. The city in general is too expensive to the tourist. I was there 6 years ago and the prices were 40% cheaper.
Galerias Pacifico is a nice place for windows shopping and the atmosphere is great, maybe a nice place to eat lunch, but most of the tourist need to look for other place for shopping.
