Ate here twice and loved it both times. Best burger in BA hands-down. Great piece of grilled salmon with grilled veggies on return visit. Service was great / friendly & efficient. Music from inside was pulling the crowds- this place rocks!

For our dinner, we were appealed by the menu, but the music played in the street from this restaurant was very loud. The waitress advised us to sit inside because it was supposedly quiter. Which we did, but unfortunately it was not the case. We had pollo and salmon, both tasty but way too salty. As soon as we finished,... More

We are in their outdoor area looking at the Recolata cemetery wall. The street had lots of traffic and the music was loud. We enjoyed one of their offerings that serves two. The sampler plate of "Mexican" food was good.

It's a very well located pub, with tasty food, good drinks, very good music, and the atmosphere is really warm. Friendly service, and security at the entrance (good detail).

Cool place, nice location, but really tons of shady people, prostitutes type, probably because there are so many "clubs" in the area. Will never return.

This is a great place to do people watching, get excellent service and good local food at a reasonable price. Also the location is great, accross the street from the famous Recoleta Cementry and in a safe and fun part of town. A good couples place for a drink, snack or full meal, with music, candles and friendly people.

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
