We went here as 2 families with 4 kids. They were very welcoming of our group. It seemed like we were the only English speaking guests there, which I took as a good sign. Good steaks, good sides, nice service, no tourists (other than us)....More

This was my first experience of both an Argentine parilla and steak. I wasnt let down on either account. Set in the theatre district, it was empty when we went in for dinner at 8pm but soon picked up with a steady stream of customers,...More

This is a traditional Buenos Aires restaurant conveniently located at just one block from Corrientes Avenue and five blocks from the Obelisco. It is going back to the 1920's but on a very well kept place. The service is excellent and the food terrific. Every...More

We went to Chiquilin as a referred customer of hotel Tango de Mayo and given a slip of paper for a free glass of bubbles while we looked over the menu. There was soo much to choose from. But I went for some old favourites...More

One thing you’ll notice when eating at parillas in Buenos Aires is that each has its own homemade chimichurri sauce. The best I’ve had since El Rincón Argentino (a New York restaurant that closed decades ago) is here at Chiquin. Of course, there’s more to...More

A bit out of the way, we found this on our last day; wish we’d discovered it earlier. Classic old-fashioned restaurant full of locals and apparently regulars - and not surprisingly, the food was superb. One of best steaks I’ve ever had, and even the...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

I was there a few months ago & pretty expensive - well for me. It was like $25 for a ribeye steak, $25 for a bottle of wine. Didn't do any deserts. Argentina has gotten sooo expensive the last 2 years it is crazy
