We had a wonderful dinner at Brasserie Petanque. Service was top notch. The onion soup was delicious and the Boeuf Bourguignon superb. The wine recommendation was simply perfect. A well managed place were you cannot go wrong. Highly recommended.

As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires,
Montserrat is defined by the historical events that
took place there and the landmarks that have stood the
test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of
