Our 5 star hotel reluctantly recommended this place - probably because it was 13 blocks away and they were concerned about the walk. However it is a gem . We got there and locals were queuing up outside for both tables and takeaway. It probably...More

We stumbled across this Parrilla on our way back from a laundromat and even though it was getting towards 4.00pm, when the staff have a break before the dinner service, we were welcomed inside. Nothing fancy about the decor, lots of tables fairly close together...More

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes
