    Cafe Tortoni

    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 ...

    Gran Café Tortoni

    11 reviews

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

    Café La Poesía

    2 reviews

    La Poesía in San Telmo has two things going for it: firstly, it prepares a variety of large and tasty picadas (cheese, olive and cold meat boards) and secondly, it’s walls are covered in literary memorabilia and references to Argentine poetical greats.

    El Desnivel

    Before I came to Argentina, I did not like beef. Then I came to El Desnivel, and I discovered what steak should really taste like. Simply prepared (salt and pepper is all you need!) and affordable, this parilla's steak items are some of the best in the city. This restaurant has a lot of history, as does the neighborhood itself. ...

    Fantastic bife de chorizo, one of the best parrillas in the city. Love the many free chef's gifts as well.

    Cabaña Las Lilas

    Excellent steak house - possibly one of the best in BA - but I just loathe the Puerto Madero area, it's too modern and bling for me.

    Havanna Alfajores

    This is NOT the place to grab a coffee to go. You need to relax, take a seat and absorb the incredible smell of any of them, while enjoying a nice cup of coffee. Try the expresso and a Cacao alfajor.

    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. ...

    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

    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.

    Cafe San Juan

    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 ...

    Cafe La Biela is in the Recoleta neighborhood near the Centro Cultural Recoleta and the Iglesia de Nuestra Senora del Pilar. I will tell you, you have never had anything as tasty and delicious as La Biela's banana crepes!! The best in the world!!

    peruvian-style sushi in argentina. one of my favorite non-argentinian argentinian restaurants. as with any sushi feast, try a little bit of everything. you won't be sorry. that said, it can get pricey. bring your sugar mama/daddy or put it on your company's expense report.

    Kansas Grill Palermo

    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.

    Cabaña Las Lilas

    5 reviews

    If price is not your problem, this place is the right for you. Definitively one of the TOP parrillas from Buenos Aires. You can sit indoors or outside with a beautiful view to Puerto Madero, the most nice neighborhood, with a view to the docks, the water, the great buildings and offices.
