We spent three days in BA after a week in country. Trip Advisor ranks Parilla Pena highly and the reviews are right on. Atmosphere is casual, service and wait staff professional and helpful. Waiters speak almost no English and I can barely read the menu,...More

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes
