Top ways to experience Puerto Madero
The area
Neighbourhood: Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect combination of old and new. The river provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away. Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this neighbourhood a unique destination in a city as busy as Buenos Aires. The restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the docks make it a prime spot for nights out and have come to symbolise this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.

    Top restaurant and excellent waiter (Francisco)
    Best meal we had in Cancun. Tenderloin was absolutely delicious and so was the tuna from Baja Califirnia. Argentinian Merlot was delicious for a reasonable price. We had delicious fish carpaccios as starters with house cocktails. Ah! Don’t miss the truffle fries and cream spinach as side dishes. And Francisco , our waiter , was impeccable. We very much appreciated lus kindness, knowledge and honesty. He was very transparent about the prices and gave us great advice on the dishes and quantity of food we had to order.

    A waterfront area worth a visit if you are museumed out
    A great place to walk around. A large restaurant area on the water on both sides. Two places to cross. Historical ship in port to view when open. Not accessible by subway so you have to walk from the last stop or take a taxi. We had trouble finding a taxi to take us there during dinner time.

    Cool vibes
    Really cool vibe and plenty of choices to eat and drink. We even got the bonus of a traditional tango dance on the bridge which was brilliant. Places to try include a restaurant called Chana (very cool and relaxed seating) and Juan Bautista Parrilla Gaucha for a decent steak restaurant (but can be busy so plan ahead)

    Pleasantly surprised.
    Great, atmosphere and food. Attentive staff very friendly. Food was plentiful and delicious. Drinks were cold and refreshing. Ordered the veal and it filled in entire plate. One of the largest I’ve ever ever had. Rest of the party had steaks all pleasantly surprised.

    Beautiful
    Nice walk through the new buildings, born on the old constructions. The newest part of BA, high and beautiful buildings, expensive apartments, fashionable shops. One of the best parts of BA

    Great waterfront area of Buenos Aires
    We really enjoyed visiting this area of Buenos Aires. Please note that the waterway is a CANAL and not a river or harbor. That said, be sure to visit the Woman's Bridge that has a part that looks like a woman's leg during a Tango.

Newer area within Buenos Aries full of cafes, bars and restaurants. Great for a stroll in the sun or for lunch / dinner. Feels very safe!

A little touristy, but pleasant enough to walk around restaurants and water. Pedestrian bridge and ferry building iconic.

This area is home to a variety of hip eateries and bars. It has a very modern feel to it and makes for a great outing, even if you just want to go for a beverage or two.

On a tour we were told that this is the newest neighborhood in Buenos Aires. It looks new, as the architecture is not the same as in other areas. There is a lovely boardwalk on both sides of the river. There are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants to choose from.
We used the Women's Bridge as our Uber dropoff and pickup places, as it is a recognized spot.
