Not worth coming, they kept us changing from table. The drinks were really small. Rude waitress, complete rubish this place. Dirty male and female toilets.

One of the best places to visit. A boutique restaurant. Not pretentious. Straight up goodness. It's an undersized space for its well earned popularity but executes extremely well - perhaps due to having such limited capacity. So expect a LONG wait during peak hours. It...More

The cosy bohemian space was packed with a mostly 20something crowd on the Friday night we visited. Despite the crowd our English speaking waitress was attentive and helpful.  The food was simple and hearty and the portions aren't too huge. Although the place was lively...More

This is the top-rated mid-price restaurant in the Retiro area, so we went there for dinner. It is a restaurant with a very interesting vibe and good food and wine (and beer). Definitely worth the visit. And oh, either go early before the rush, or...More

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest.

We arrived early both times we went there, so we didn't need a reservation. ("Early" in Buenos Aires isn't very early compared to the USA.)
