We went here as 2 families with 4 kids. They were very welcoming of our group. It seemed like we were the only English speaking guests there, which I took as a good sign. Good steaks, good sides, nice service, no tourists (other than us)....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
