Had a wonderful onion soup, brilliant lamb and the best desert I've ever tasted, an apple pie. Some places are average, some leave you wanting, this place left me wanting to go back. Great service/people too.

As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires,
Montserrat is defined by the historical events that
took place there and the landmarks that have stood the
test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of
this connection to history: countless public
demonstrations have passed through this square, going
