Don’t expect to be very surprised going to “La Bourgogne” in general terms. But you won’t have bad surprises either. Décor classic. We had the gastronomic menu with my wife and we really had a good time. Special mention for the meat of course. We had better expectation regarding the cheese as well. Wine pairing interesting, not exceptional but good... More

We enjoyed dinner here and we were treated to impeccably prepared classically influenced French food. The service was equally good.

Great place for a special meal. Lots of extras, so be careful ordering a sweet - you may not need one with all the extra delicious treats. Friends said they thought it the best meal by far in BA. The ambiance is lovely but - this is purely personal - I didn't like: Food comes smothered in butter, Salmon is... More

Rated #1 restaurant in Buenos Aires, it lacked the quality a great French restaurant should have. The fish was a bit off tasting, perhaps not too fresh which really put me off, especially with the big price tag. Dessert was nice , as well as the petit fores. Appetizer of shrimp was again off taste. Service a bit shaky. I... More

It was our first meal in Buenos Aires, and by far our best meal. It is set in a very modern, cool space, an unexpected surprise. They knew from our concierge of my food allergy and dietary concerns and seamlessly and deliciously substituted ingredients. It was a very romantic evening, the perfect way to celebrate a belated Valentine's Dinner.

La Bourgogne restaurant, in the lovely Alvear Hotel is consistently a delightful place to dine with delicious food and excellent service. We had been there in previous visits to BsAs, and it never disappoints. 4 friends, DH and I had those tasty small bites with champagne followed by fish, beef and duck principle dishes. Every one was wonderful. Then, we... More

I had only one night in Recoleta, Buenos Aires before catching my flight back to the states. I chose La Bourgogne because of its reputation as the best French restaurant in B.A. I must say that it was impeccable, extraordinary service, extra delicious food.

La Bourgogne has been the traditional French restaurant to go in Buenos Aires. Situated under the Alvear Hotel is one of the most iconic restaurants of La recoleta. Great food, all good choices. Expensive but worth it. If Jean Paul (the owner and chef) is around have a word with him and meet a great person. A must experience. Hope... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
