Argentinian Restaurant
$$
“This is a San Telmo restaurant at its best: tightly packed tables, patrons knocking elbows, suited waiters, a sweaty asador and great meat. It started with one floor but now has three, including a rooftop terrace. Order your meat jugoso (rare) and the waiter might just cut it with a spoon. Like La Cabrera, it’s a bit pricier but the whole experience is a good value.”

Bar
$$
“Along with it's 'sister' La Poesia, this is one of two traditional restaurants, very typical of old Buenos Aires. Having the same owner, they both have the same varied menu, including burgers, pastas, salads, sandwiches and some very good sharing platters (‘picadas’) . Both have a great atmosphere and interesting antique/vintage décor, without being super ‘touristy.’ Try a craft beer accompanied by a traditional ‘picada.’ A great option any time of day.”

Sushi Restaurant
$$$$
“If you are a sushi lover then this place is amazing!!! This is the perfect mix between Asian and Peruvian cuisine, they have different sushi options and appetizers. The amazing part that this is not a regular sushi restaurant, is a well-decorated ambient also, but I don't recommend it if you are searching for a restaurant on a budget. ”
