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 ...Popular withHistoryLocalFoodies

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.Popular withLocalHistoryFoodies
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.

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. ...Popular withLocalBusinessGreen

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.Popular withFoodiesLuxuryAdventure

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 ...Popular withFoodiesBusinessGreen

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!!Popular withFoodiesLocal
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.Popular withFoodies
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.
