We went as two couples to Plaza Mayor, looking for a change of scene from grilled meat in Buenos Aires. Unfortunately, this Spanish-themed restaurant fell down on service but particularly on quality. My friend's bacalao was not very good at all. Adding insult to injury...More

A bit pricey but well worth the visit for the ambience and the tortillas españoles. Right across the street from BABikes so a great place to stop for lunch after a morning ride.

We went for dinner and had the paella, it was good but I definitely expected better. For dessert I had "zapallo en almibar" with whipped cream, that was excellent.

We visited the Plaza Mayor twice during our stay in Buenos Aires. It is a fun place to stroll through. We were told it is perfectly safe during the day, but not so at night.

As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires,
Montserrat is defined by the historical events that
took place there and the landmarks that have stood the
test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of
this connection to history: countless public
demonstrations have passed through this square, going
back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the
