Trip Report Thanks AVRooster

Jump to last reply

Just returned from my 5th visit to Buenos Aires and, as always, AVRooster´s help was invaluable. We rented a gorgeous apartment in Recoleta, through VRBO, a bit pricey, but worth every penny. The beds, linens and pillows were like a dream. I even wrote the manager asking where I could get the pillows, which I finally purchased and brought one back home.
We changed money, of course with AVRoosters´s company, and were invited for lunch at L´Orangerie, at the Alvear Palace, which is quite an experience. I´ve never felt like royalty before, except besides at the the Ciragan Palace in Istanbul, and the service we received at L´Orangerie, was worth of kings. The lunch buffet had everything you can think of from Sushi, salads, hot dishes and the most delicious bread. Besides the cold entrees, I had the Patagonian lamb chops which were delicious. My travel companions had second servings but I just couldn´t eat more. The service was amazing, with attentive waiters without being intrusive. I would highly recommend visiting L´Orangerie for a good pamper.

San Juanino´s empanadas in Calle Posadas are a must in Buenos Aires. First evening, after unpacking , walked three blocks and ordered them. Another occasion we called for delivery and before our return home, we ordered three boxes to bring back home with us.

We had lunch twice at Fervor, as per AVRooster´s recommendations and loved it. Sottovoce in Puerto Madero, in spite of the good reviews and having been there in my previous trips, didn´t live to our expectations. Service was very poor and the food quality was not so good. My travel partner nor myself drink wine, so I ordered a vodka on the rocks with a slice of lime and I was brought a lemonade with vodka. I ordered linguini with dried tomatoes and olives, without any garlic, and instead got an extra amount of garlic. Sottovoce has been crossed off my restaurants in Buenos Aires.
