Snooker tables galore in the basement if you fancy a gentle game to relax. Otherwise relax in the cafe on the ground floor - aircon, coffee and pizza and free cake. Amazing decor just on the main road up to the parliament building

An open plan, relaxed atmosphere restaurant that left me feeling full and content.On the main street, it is a great location offering beer, pizza and a selection of other dishes such as empandas. The food was very reasonably priced, and had a steady stream of...people coming in and out. The empanadas carne contained more green olives than meat however they were still tasty and were a sufficient size. It seemed that they offer a good variety and well priced selection for breakfast so I would suggest a visit for this if in the area.More

We stayed local to this bar and a number of tourist locations, during our 8 day stay in Buenos Aires. We found the service, food, beer and customer service excellent. The staff even arranged for English Premiership Football game to be shown live on screen...at our request with no issues.More

On the surface, 36 Billares is a typical bar porteño: mid-20th century interiors, the scent of coffee and trays of croissants fresh from the oven. But there's a catch...if you make your way to the basement floor you'll find Argentina's largest billiards hall! In spite...of what the venue's name may suggest, there are slightly less than 36 billiard tables- I counted! If you feel like trying your hand at a game of billiards be warned: this place is where the professionals hang out!More

Good food, great beer and friendly service. Oh yes - NO background music! It seems to be open all the time, and the wonderful atmosphere gives a lovely place to relax in the busy city of Buenos Aires.

Very nice atmosphere. Excellent pizza ‘italian standards’. We attended a chitarra solo concert extremely interesting. Donwstairs billiard hall a must-be-place for people with Italian roots.

The service was very good. Ernesto is an excellent server. The wine that we ordered was very good. I came back few days later for coffee, and it was also good.

I got a slice of pizza from this restaurant for dinner on 16 June 2019 (being the day that most of Argentina had power outages), having eaten only hot chips at the airport in Salta earlier that day. While the restaurant had a good atmosphere...and the pizza tasted alright, one of the ingredients on the pizza I ate must have been stored wrong, as a few hours later a severe gastro symptoms commenced, with the symptoms lasting for 3 days when I wasn't on gastro stop.More

During my time in Buenos Aires, I've been to many cafes for my morning cafe con leche, and 36 Billares is one of my favorites. It's centrally located, spacious, and elegant in the old style of the traditional coffee houses with inlaid wood designs on...the wall. It strikes me as less touristy than other cafes in Buenos Aires (such as Tortoni), with most if not all patrons locals who know the place well. The coffee is excellent as are the different pastries (e.g., medialunas) and the service is attentive.More
