Found this place near my hotel in Recoleta! Loved the decoration! Empanadas were excellent and did very much like the beer the waitress recommended, called Rabieta Golden.

Our family found this gem near a great shopping center. It was a wonder respite to receive warm hospitality and delicious food that was clearly homemade. We highly recommend this restaurant as a must see taste of local cuisine.

My husband and I had an early dinner here on a chilly winter evening. Delicious stews, bread, and empanadas. Our waitress was so friendly and welcoming to us English speakers that we felt right at home. We got the wine that was on the table...and got a second bottle to take home - very good wine.More

My husband and I went there for dinner. He had a flavorful carbonada and I had a flank steak cooked in milk with potatoes. My potatoes were little dry and the steak wasn't what I expected, but that was a question of preference and my...fault. All in all the staff was friendly, the food was well made and the restaurant has a nice relaxed atmosphere with tons of things to discover all over the room and the table. Prices were totally fine. We regret not trying the empanadas... Maybe next time :)More

neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos
Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment
buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions
turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude
an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll
