Buenos Aires Restaurants



El Imparcial

El Imparcial Review

Founded in 1860, the oldest restaurant in town owes its name (meaning "impartial") to its neutrality in the face of the warring political factions of Buenos Aires' Spanish immigrants. Hand-painted tiles, heavy wooden furniture, and paintings of Spain are all strong reminders of the restaurant's origins, as are the polite, elderly waiters, many of whom are from the old country. Talking politics is no longer banned within, good news for today's Argentines, who keep coming to El Imparcial for the renowned puchero as well as seafood specialties like paella.
