There is a phrase that is repeated: the Tortoni is the oldest café in Argentina. Founded in 1858, it has a history dating back 150 years and is still open and running. This place, which could well be transformed into a museum and because it seems to have scoured the country serves, nevertheless a coffee like all others. But it is not like any other coffee in Buenos Aires, they all seem a far cry from Tortoni ...
The Confitería Las Violetas is a famous bar, teahouse and confectionery located at the corner of Rivadavia and Medrano in the Almagro neighborhood of Buenos Aires. It belongs to the group of "Bares Notables" of the city. It was inaugurated on September 21, 1884 and remodeled in the 1920s. It has decorated windows, curved glass doors, French windows and Italian marble floors. In 1998 it was declared a site of cultural interest and was subsequently restored between January to June 2001. Wooden coverings were restored as well as chandeliers and the ceiling. The original floor was unrecoverable but another was built respecting original colors and forms. Fortunately the facade was fully recovered and kept its original materials.
Since the year 1934 the restaurant "El Cuartito" was the best pizzeria to be found in the city of Buenos Aires, situated in the heart of the city, famous for its pies, pizzas and desserts.

Siga la Vaca is a good restaurant that you'll find in Puerto Madero, in the part of the city that is most popular with tourists. It's open every day from 12 noon until the "last customer". It specialises in steak, but here you can enjoy all kinds of grilled meat - beef, pork, chicken, offal, sweetbreads, sausages, black pudding ... the menu is all-inclusive, so you can have an unlimited variety of meats with salad and fries, as well as a drink (wine, beer or soda) and a dessert. The price is fixed, and varies according to the day of the week and the time of day, costing between $ 49 and $ 65 per person. I really like it. The food is good, and the prices are great for the amount you can eat. The meals are self-service, with the waiters only bringing you drinks and dessert. A great place to go with a group of friends for a special occasion.
Like the old Café Tortoni, the Black Cat Café is on the list of places declared 'Cafés Notables of Buenos Aires'. No wonder as this beautiful corner of Avenida Corrientes is one of the most charming places to stop for coffee, tea or dinner. The Black Cat was founded in 1927. Its shelves crammed with spices and teas seem not to have changed since then. The cafe also serves as a deli and dinner is served to the accompaniment of jazz bands. The cafe is part of the life of the Corrientes night owl. It is the perfect place to stop before or after going to the movies or the theater or browsing in the bookstores.
Corrientes Avenue is famous for its old pizzerias and popular dining restaurants. Among the many that there are to recommend, El Palacio de la Papa Frita is a classic that can't be missed. Although its premises have been modernized in a bland way, it's kitchen and waiter's attention haven't changed over the decades. Among the dishes do not miss the famous potato souffle and good meat. This grill is unmatched.
Buenos Aires Design is the best shopping mall specialising in design, decoration and interior furnishing in the capital. It is set in a huge campus, tastefully decorated, and offering plenty of spots to relax and enjoy yourself. If you have time to spare, then you should be sure to stop for a look in their magnificent windows, where you'll find the most modern, best quality furniture and decoration. This spectacular two-level structure also features a huge terrace of 3,000 square meters where you can find 12 restaurants and bars, offering everything from traditional cuisine to the Hard Rock Cafe.
Sarquis is a restaurant offering Arabic and Armenian food. It opens every day from 12 to 3, and again from 8pm to 1 am. You can only pay in cash. The quality of the food is good and the portions are generous. I recommend the hummus and shish-kebabs. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. The average price per person is $ 55. If you're walking through Palermo Viejo, looking at the craft fairs, this could be a good place to stop and try something a bit different to eat.
Xalapa is a restaurant located near Plaza Serrano in Palermo Viejo. Mexico offers flavors of Buenos Aires adapted to taste. The atmosphere is very good and the food tasty and plentiful. You can share and sample several dishes. The prices are not excessive. The only potential downside is that you will probably have to wait on a Friday or Saturday. Another drawback is that there are many people so sometimes service is a bit on the slow side.
Situated opposite the beautiful Plaza Francia, and looking over the Recoleta Cemetery and the Church of Pilar, La Biela has been a classic establishment in Buenos Aires. It features a lovely terrace and its rooms are crammed with pictures of sports cars and motor racing, it is very common to see celebrities here, from people associated with football to television artists or writers and intellectuals. With the tourism boom that is currently taking place in Buenos Aires, La Biela has become an unmissable place to visit for people from all over the world, yet it has not lost the elegant neighborhood atmosphere that makes it so popular.
This pizzeria's history began in 1952, when its first store opened its doors in Calle Corrientes. Later, another branch was opened in Calle Lavalle. Today, nothing has changed in the recipe of their famous pizzas, although more branches have opened: in Belgrano, and in Recoleta, where in addition to their classic offerings, they serve homemade pasta and top-quality Argentinian meat.
Doña Isabel is a traditional Italian restaurant in the neighborhood of Villa Urquiza. It has a variety of dinner options but specializes in pasta and seafood. We ate a generous portion of gnocchi gratin with Roquefort that was so generous in fact that we had to split it between the two of us. We had tiramisu for dessert and it was really one of the best I've ever had. It's a nice, quiet place to have a bite to eat.
It is like a still life, where one feels like home, the meals are excellent and I can't even talk about the grill in all its content, the sweetbreads, and Roasted bondiola, they are simply the best, with great sides, it became well known for tourism since pedestrians found it on the street in San Telmo defense,.
Eat 'of dorapa' in slang, means to step up. This modality is still practiced in this classic and popular pizzeria in Corrientes. In GUERRIN the bar is popular, but it also has a lounge where you will find people eating as God intended, or sitting at a table. The pizzeria has been in operation since 1932 and is a classic Buenos Aires establishment. In my opinion it serves the best pizzas, pies fainas and Corrientes Avenue. The atmosphere, typical of the avenue, is as it should be: Loud and crowded. GUERRIN is one of the best places to end the night after enjoying a film in the nearby cinema. If you really want to eat as they do in Buenos Aires, but sure not to sit, but rather, eat anchovy pizza with tomato mozzarella or special in the bar 'of dorapa'.
The San Juan is a great place to eat, specialising in empanadas, tamales, and other Argentinian delicacies. We especially recommend the fried empanadas, and the spicy beef flank steak cooked over charcoal. It's not a very big restaurant, but the rustic dark wood walls make for a great environment. Service is great, and they offer delivery. It's a good choice if you want to have some empanadas when you go for a walk in the Recoleta, as it's located in Calle Posadas between Callao and Ayacucho. To give you an idea of its location, you'll have to walk about four blocks from the Church of Pilar. Price: $ 50. = 9 Euros, or more if you'd like a glass of wine or a beer with your meal.
The chef in charge of the Hernn Gipponi is one of the best in Argentina's capital, and is one of the few restaurants worth eating in (its among the top 50 in Latin America), and is in the Restaurant list magazine. We had a very nice dinner, with very creative and simple dishes at the same time, the main ingredient and technique may be somewhat uncommon. Besides having a very minimalist kitchen, the dishes are also simplistic, but the chef strikes a balance between flavors and textures not found in any other place in the whole of Argentina. When we visited, I only had the option of menu-tasting and all dishes surprised us greatly, both visually, as well as in aroma and flavor. Also, the wine harmoniously accompanied the food to form a complete experience. I especially enjoyed the white wine made from the Malbec grape, super rare to find, but very tasty. Do not miss it.
