Amazing food and good atmosphere. You don't need to be a vegetarian to love this food, as you might have noticed it is hard to find spicy food in Buenos Aires - but this one is both spicy and very good. Make sure to pay a visit while you are in town!

My boyfriend and I had a lovely time at Juevas a La Mesa. Sophia & Meghan served a delicious vegetarian meal that filled us up along with organic wine. The table was filled with kindred spirits who became new friends. The focus is on local organic, seasonal vegetables/plants and fresh ingredients to create succulent, often spicier meals. The chefs tastefully... More

I came here for dinner with 2 friends, wie all go to Buona Onda Yoga so we got a discount. It was a great international and local mix of people. The food was marrocean and very delicious - and spicy whichs rare in Buenos Aires! I particularly enjoyed the seasalt-dark chocolate dessert with melon :)

If you're in Buenos Aires, and you're vegetarian, or just have had your fill of all the red meat everywhere, don't panic! Meghan & Company are your guardian angels. This place, a "closed door" restaurant (that serves only by reservation and only on Thursday evenings), is such a charming, lovely experience, you'll love it, eat very well, and meet a... More

We had a really lovely evening at Jueves a la Mesa - a delicious and originally conceived meal by Meghan with every thought put into preparing and eating food with kind earth and sustainable philosophy. This didn't mean that the meal was less tasty - far from it - the Mexican themed food (Meghan takes inspiration from different global food... More

A lovely intimate experience with a warm welcome and hearty meal. Meghan is the sweetest and most perfect host. Meghan's ginger tea is a must-try (sorry Meghan, you might have to make it again!). We were lucky enough to celebrate Meghan's birthday, conveniently slicing into the fruit cake we brought along to the dinner! Hope to join again soon! -... More

Meals like this daily would make it easy to be a healthy vegetarian. Great atmosphere, hosts and company. If I were in Buenos Aires I'd like to come every week.

After hearing about Jueves a la mesa for so many years, I finally got it together to actually go last night. It was great. Fun people, great food (that you really don't see other places in the city) and it was nice to see the community that Meghan creates with her food and activities. If you are looking for a... More

Staying in San Telmo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
