I returned to Zum Edelweiss after a 10-year absence, and found the beautiful antique wood panelling, stained glass trim, inviting and warm. The staff immediately welcomed me and, upon my choosing a table, delivered glasses of dry sherry, compliments of the house. Delightful. The food...More

This is timeless classic, very traditional, particularly for late eating after the theatre. Dishes are plentiful and with very good quality. The gratin ravioli are just lovely

I went with friends before going to the theatre ( it is open for very early dinner). The food was good, beer excellent, service great and the ambiance is vintage German restaurant. They even bring the butter in little curls like they did before.

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
