A night out on the town with the boys. Doesn't appear to be a popular part of town but the food was good. Not a lot of English spoken but the staff were friendly and attentive.

I visited Al Carbon after work hoping to try some of the famous Argentine beef and was not disappointed. The food was very nice and the service was great. The decor and atmosphere was good as even on a weekday it was relatively busy.

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest.
