This restaurant serves a typical French dinner in a beautifull old building. Serves and dishes excellent. Worth a visit.

Maitre d was very accommodating. Kir aperitif Oysters were fresh. Rabbit with Dijon tasty. Steak not on the level we had hoped good with very few mushrooms. Great creme brûlée. Armagnac open too long oxidized

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
back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the
