“Cute San Telmo lunch spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

Stopped here after the Sunday market for lunch. The atmosphere was lovely and the location is ideal - right at the cobblestone streets with vendors selling art, crafts, leather, flea market goods. The interior is wood paneled and cozy, with a sizeable bar and jazz on the radio. The steak with chimmichuri was reported to be excellent, chicken ceasar salad was excellent, but skip the super thick pizza.

“Great lunch stop in San Telmo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

Atmospheric bar and restauarant right by El Zanjon (the historic house and tunnels). I popped in for a late lunch and had the charcuterie plate which, at about $45arg was a relative bargain compared to the other prices in the area! I had a nice assortment of meats together with olives, an eggplant and carrot caponata and some fresh bread. The place itself is very cool - straight out of Paris or Barcelona.

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

Wow, what a place!! Here you really can get a piece of that famous San Telmo vibe. The ambiance is fantastic, you just feel at home immediately. The place invites you literally to stay longer and to linger and observe the people passing by, to chat with the friendly staff or other guests or to enjoy the homey features of the place. The service is great, thank you for making me feel so comfortable! And as well the food is fantastic, my compliments to the chef, the chocolate/passion fruit cake was a dream :) l'm already looking forward to come back to this place, it will be a must for my next visit to Buenos Aires!!!

“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

Having spent several months living in Buenos Aires, and visiting many bars, I can say this is definitely one of the best. During the day it is a lovely cool and airy place to take a break from exploring San Telmo market, but imo it is even better at night when the low lighting and antique decor give a really special atmosphere, especially when they have live music on. Staff are super friendly and happy to chat and share local knowledge
