What a beautiful interior! Felt the slightest bit kitschy, but it was beautiful inside and felt as though my friend and I travelled back to the early 20th century. Stained-glass windows, lots of food (tea-time style), and a wide array of people (groups of families,...More

You may have to wait but worth it. Come very hungary. We had the platter with the cakes and sandwiches. Enough to feed a family.

The best restaurant I have visited in Buenos Aires. The staff are friendly and attentive, and the food is delicious. It has beautiful settings, in a traditional cafe. Plus complementary champagne!

If you're in the area, check it out, but don't go out of your way to make a special trip. The alfajores were not the best I had in Argentina and the room wasn't as pretty as I had hoped. Seemed like a tourist trap,...More

Las Violetas is a great place. Despite having to walk for miles to find it, I was glad that I did. It was worth the effort. Old world charm and sophistication, but in no way is it stuffy or elitist: this is not a museum,...More

No need to book. Just show up, choose an empty table and one of the white-coated waiters will come around with a menu.
