    Cafe Tortoni

    Avenida de Mayo 825, LANúS 1084 Argentina
    28 reviews

    Café Tortoni is one of the “cafés notables” in Buenos Aires, meaning that it’s one of the oldest and most traditional coffee shops that you could ever frequent in the city. One of the most traditional orders would be a coffee (either black, with milk or a “lagrima”) with three medialunas (or croissants) on the side. You’ll be served by ...

    Very atmospheric cafe popular in the past with the likes of Lorca and Gardel. Evening Tango shows but equally popular during the day time.

    El Desnivel

    Defensa 855, Buenos Aires Argentina

    El Desnivel is a tradition Argentinian Parrilla located in San Telmo. I have been here 3 times in the last 6 years and the food is consistently good and the location is excellent. During the Sunday San Telmo Antique fair, this place gets really busy so expect to wait. Other than that, you can walk in and get a table. ...

    La Boca - Buenos Aires

    La Boca - Buenos Aires

    La Boca may feel a bit Disney-ish at times, what with decked-out tango dancers offering to take a picture with you (for a small fee, of course), but the colorful scenery and warm atmosphere will charm you. Have a seat at one of the many cafes or restaurants for empanadas and a beer and watch a tango or chacarera performance. ...

    Havanna Alfajores

    The alfajor is a sweet treat, halfway between a biscuit and a cake, with lashings of dulce de leche, jam or mousse in the middle. The Havana brand is the oldest, most traditional brand of alfajor in Argentina, first set up in Mar Del Plata. There are thousands of Havana coffee shops all over Buenos Aires, but the Havana on ...

    Cocina Sunae

    1 review

    It's hard to find good southeast Asian food in Buenos Aires. There's an abundance of Chinese takeout joints and sushi restaurants, but the city is in short-supply of Thai and Vietnamese food. Cocina Sunae will satisfy all your southeast Asian food cravings. It's worth it, though, just for the experience of going to a closed-door restaurant (puerta cerrada). It's a ...

    Felicidad Deli + Café

    Migueletes 887

    Felicidad Deli + Café was and still is one of my favorite places to eat breakfast, or lunch. There was a period when I'd literally go once per week and my hungry vegetarian self was always satisfied by the hearty veggie burgers, delicious and fresh wraps, and cous cous salads (note: this restaurant serves meat, chicken and fish, which I ...

    The Gibraltar

    Peru 895, GUATRACHé C1068AAG Argentina
    2 reviews

    One of the few British pubs in Buenos Aires and a very popular place with locals who come after work. Great beer on draft and a nice traditional English menu (Fish and Chips included). If you want to eat, come early as seating is limited. There's also a pool table and a backyard for respite. Overall, very nice atmosphere, friendly ...

    Cafe San Juan

    Avenida San Juan 450, Buenos Aires Argentina
    7 reviews

    This is hands down the best meal I had in Buenos Aires, and one of the best meals I've ever had in my life (and I've been fortunate to have lots of great meals all over the world!) The simple but delicious (and surprisingly affordable) menu marries interesting flavors, but more importantly, you can tell that so much care and ...

    Caminito, Buenos Aires, Argentina

    Havana is famous for their dulce de leche treats, so we had to give them a try. I asked for the thing they're famous for and the cashier gave me this delicious creation of chocolate and dulce de leche. It comes in additional flavors and with fruit, but I opted for the original. Not disappointed.

    Museo Fundación Proa

    Avenida Don Pedro de Mendoza 1929, La Boca, Buenos Aires, Argentina
    1 review

    We saw this museum's show about political and pop art in Argentina and Brazil from the 60s and 70s and were impressed with the thoughtful curation that had gone into the exhibit. The show included about 150 diverse pieces – I think everyone who walked into that museum found something that captivated them, whether it was the Jesus hanging off ...

    Coffee Town

    Bolivar 976, Mercado de San Telmo, Buenos Aires, Argentina
    1 review

    OK, so we were sitting in this cafe, shooting the shit with the awesome owners and staff, and drinking some truly tremendous coffee, when who walks up and orders a cuppa - JOHN MALCOVICH, that's who!!!! This place would get an unadulterated five-star rating from me even without the celebrity sighting - its passionate owners and barristas make some seriously ...

    Cabaña Las Lilas

    Avenida Dávila 516, LANúS 1107 Argentina

    This restaurant is located in Puerto Madero which is in a newer part of BA. It's very clean and kind of on the touristy side and frequented by a lot of Americans. Still they remain true to their roots and serve up some delicious steaks. Caution. Do not fill up on the complimentary starters and breads. It's good, but wait ...

    Avenida Corrientes 3247, Buenos Aires, Capital Federal, Argentina
    11 reviews

    This place is gelato heaven. I could eat the dulce de leche granizado (dulce de leched with chocolate bits) all day long. There are numerous outlets throughout the city. I prefer the one in Recoleta just because of the neighborhood. This is BA. You have to have the dulce de leche. It will never be this good at home.

    Siga La Vaca

    Alicia Moreau de Justo 1714, Lago Buenos Aires Argentina
    13 reviews

    It's a versatile all-you-can-eat buffet specialized on BBQ or "Asado". Conveniently located, it allows you to wander Puerto Madero afterwards. Nothing fancy nor the best parrilla in town, but it's worth giving it a try.

    Kansas Grill Palermo

    4625 Av Del Libertador

    I'll admit that this place reminded me a lot of a typical American restaurant but I have to admit that the food was amazing. The entire group that went there admitted that it was some of the best steak in Buenos Aires. I had the chicken also and it was a very savory alternative.
