It's the 'ambiente'. Professional waiters, marble columns, mirrors, the confectionary case, high ceilings, the arches, the people watching....that's worth five stars. The food is fine. If you are a tourist you will find the 'sandwiches de miga' wonderful as are the pastries and the 'media...More

Went to Las Violetas because it is one of the nicest traditional tea room in Buenos Aires. I took pasta and have been badly intoxicated. Old cheese. Too bad. Go only to watch it. Don't go to eat. What does Sanitary Controls do?

Having spent 5 days in BA, our stay wouldn't be the same if we haven't been to las violetas. Echoing early 20th century european charm, excellent food and fantastic waiters; spend a breakfast time or afternoon tea here.

We had the Brasilian breakfast here with another set. For the quality of food, we thought that it was a bit pricey. It has a fun, grand environment. As we visited on a Sunday morning, it seemed that there were local families enjoying their brunch...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.
