Restaurant Reviews Index A-Z

This page is just a quick summary of restaurant reviews as I get to them. You can probably figure out the scale: Highly Recommended, Recommended, Okay, Not Recommended. Pretty simple… Links to the writeups are by clicking on the name of the place. In terms of neighborhood names for Buenos Aires in particular, I’ve tried to use the more colloquial names rather than the official government designations. One of the things I get asked regularly is for my favorites, or the don’t miss restaurants in town, so I’ve marked my five favorites to stand out – I’m not saying they’re the best restaurants in town, I haven’t tried every restaurant in town, but they’re my favorites for various reasons.

Keep in mind that Argentina has been experiencing an annual inflation rate of 30-35% since the economic crash in 2001, so if you’re reading an older review, figure that prices double roughly every 2½-3 years.

One note for those visiting from abroad. Many restaurants in Buenos Aires, especially those out of the main tourism areas (Puerto Madero, San Telmo, Recoleta and Palermo), close for part or all of the month of January – actually quite a few start with the week of Christmas to New Year.
