Site is a great and beautiful old house. Food not bad and generous portions. The problem is the service or de system, we reserve at 8pm and we had leave the table at 10pm, it's not enough time to share a dinner with friends. We...wont came back. It is a fashion place but not for pleasure. Tables and chairs had lack of maintance.More

We arrived in Buenos Aires, at the hotel, around 11:30 pm. We had had a snack at the airport before leaving Porto Alegre, so we decided to head straight to a bar recommended by friends, nearby. And it was the perfect start to our stay...at BUE. Ambience, music, beautiful bar and beautiful and fun people. In addition to a Negrone Perfeto, Jesus Messias de la Cruz, who received us magnificently, suggested a Manhattan after. And I will say: this one was perfect. Unfortunately the kitchen closes at midnight and we were not able to try the sushi. But we will come back to that for sure.More

A must go bar in Recoleta. Very good drinks and good environment in the most sophisticated neighborhood in Buenos Aires.

My wife and I came here during our stay in Buenos Aires after reading about it on the top 50 bars in the world - and it certainly lives up to it! The cocktail list is long and has everything from twists on classics to...their own cocktails! The food (Milanesa and mushroom risotto) were also fantastic! We sat at the bar and the whole team took great care of us and clearly love their job!More

The place is absolutely amazing, it irradiates an elegance aura. Food is not that good, but I went to enjoy the drinks, and they did not disappoint. Everything we had was spot on. The attention is amazing, special mention to the waiter Noel, who made...the experience even more enjoyable. The music is loud but not too much, which provides a nice kick to move your legs and even stand up to dance. I'll 100% come back again!More

Booked a reservation here for a table inside for three people. Had to wait 5 to 10 minutes to get the hostess to come over and get us seated. Service tends to be slow which is why they give you two hours for drinks and...dinner. Cocktails overall I would rate as very good. The food overall was good but probably not great. The provolone crocante appetizer was delicious. Empanadas are also a must try. The milanese came out pretty dry and the meat was a little tough but with good flavor. My son’s sushi was good and I had the Caesar salad which I would say was OK. Great overall environment and ambiance inside and outside the restaurant. Great bar area with great music being played. If I were ever to come back to Buenos Aires, I would definitely return and order some great cocktails. I highly recommend the Patagonia Fix & the Penicillin.More

Excellent bar experience with a variety of classic and author drinks. The service was a bit slow but courteous. The food was quite good way above average for what you’d expect from a bar. Highly recommended

The bar was cutting edge. The atmosphere, the attention, and the drinks were awesome. Highly recommended for either tourist or locals. Is preferable to reserve. Don’t miss the hide bar at the back of the place, which is decorated inspired in the 80s. It’s access...is through bookshelves.More
