This place is very over rated. I would actually call it a tourist trap. Service was terrible. Walked around for 10-15 minutes and couldn’t get a table. No maitre’d even offered to help. Asked a waiter and a cashier how to get a table and...More

Went for breakfast, had hot chocolate and churros. It resembled a Spanish restaurant, food and service were great.

I loved this place. Established in 1858, it's the oldest cafe in the city. It just drips with charm. Great service and food may be the reason it's been around so long. Be aware, it's very popular and you may have to wait in line...More

There was a short queue when we arrived. The doorman guards the door jealously and makes sure it is closed so no one can take a peek in. However the turnaround is quite quick so we had a table not too long after. All the...More

We had a light dinner and watched the tango show here. It is a very busy place, which means you don't get a lot of attention from the waiters. It is pretty inside, but I wouldn't rave about it. The tango show was a lot...More

The place is beautiful, price is ok, but the service is terrible!!! And the coffee and desserts disgusting. Sometimes you must do a line before going in. I don’t recommend to visit this place for its coffee, maybe trying other options

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
streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos
