The restarurant is inside Patio Bullrich shopping center, which is an elegant mall, but the restaurant has the atmosphere of a shopping center. It is better than a fast food one, so you could expect better food

I went for lunch two days ago. First I asked for a Leek and Potato soup. The leeks were invisible, unless they cut off all green stems. It was diluted mashed potatoes. This is how we do it, I was told. Then I asked for a plate containing cole slaw, greens, saffroned rice, lentils and shrimps. The man did not... More

We had to ask 2 chatting waiters to step aside so we could enter, then wait 5 minutes to be greeted and 10 more to order though the restaurant was half empty and waiters were unoccupied. The food was just bad- plain salads and overcooked chicken. Bread so dry it broke into pieces. Waste of time. We were impressed with... More

We stopped here for a coffee and a cake and we really enjoyed it. Both the lemon pie and the "dulce de leche mil ojas" were worth it. Good smoothies too.

Staying in Retiro

Neighbourhood Profile
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
