We went to La Biela for breakfast and we were a bit disappointed by the service. The waiter payed little attention to our requests and forgot half of the things we ordered. Food and drinks are OK.

Enjoyed some nice empanadas and Imperial beer at La Biela. Sat inside, also liked the motor racing memorabilia and the attentive waiters. Traditional, large, older style cafe with soul.

The restaurant/café is located in a wonderful corner, facing Recoleta's Cemetery and the square, and it's a great place to have a coffee in the afternoon or lunch. We (a couple) had good traditional food every time, and the waiters are nice. Sort of a...More

La Biela (English for the jalopy) is a classic that is in the heart of Buenos Aires with a large indoor seating area as well as a number of outdoor tables for people watching when the weather is nice. Early mornings (particularly on weekends) it...More
