We were in BA for the last week of December and since we are vegetarians , a lot of good restaurants did not have any vegetarian options on their set menu for New Year's eve. It is a very expensive deal in BA to celebrate New Year's at a good place. We walked into Marcelo since we were checking out... More

Food was up quickly after ordering even though they was pretty busy. Had the veggie risotto for two and we were both full. Good size portion. Nice selection of wine as... More

Great place to have lunch, or dinner, or everything. Quite environment for sharing a meal with friends or family. The menu is very diverse, all of the options are good enough. the majority of them are good for sharing. Valet parking is included. Definitely, a good place to go again and again

You don't go to these restaurants every other day but when you do, you pay a lot but for very good food. We had the prosciutto, mozzarella and dried tomatoes and carbonara. Delicious!

We did not like this place at all and felt completely ripped off. First of all the price quoted for the pasta dishes for two is quoted per person and not the total price which is the norm at every other restaurant that serves dishes to share. We naturally assumed it was the price for two and thus ended up... More

After eating our fill of steak and empanadas in Buenos Aires, it was time for something different. We are lovers of Italian food and after reading the reviews for Marcelo, decided this was the place to go. There was so much to love about this experience, lovely decor, the bread selection was great, good wine list and the entrees were... More

This was our first night with a group of foodies visiting Argentina for the first time from USA. I had in mind to have them taste different dishes, and share each of them in order to have their taste buds going crazy! So we sample few appetizers such as Antipasto, Prosciutto & Mozzarella, Rabas in a light tempura, fried baby... More

Amazing Italian restaurant at the beautiful Puerto Madero. The plates serve 2 (maybe 3) and are delicious!!! The fettuccine carbonara was to die for and the profiteroles were massive and some of the best I've ever had!!

Been here a few times for lunch and dinner and it is a truly great restaurant. Busy, professional service, great, high quality food served in big portions. Always full with the upper middle class locals of BA - a good sign! Tiramisu was delicious, and I have had a few... fresh pasta, of course. Staff very professional and helpful. Real... More

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighbourhood Profile
Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect combination of old and new. The river provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away. Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this neighbourhood a unique destination in a city as busy as Buenos Aires. The restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the docks make it a prime spot for nights out and have come to symbolise this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
