Trip Report Buenos Aires Highlights

Jump to last reply

We just returned from almost three weeks in Buenos Aires. We spent 10 days in an apartment in Recoletta (marvelous!) and 10 days in Palermo. Enjoyed getting to know each neighborhood. Here is a brief list of some restaurants we enjoyed:

Rio Alba - Cervino 4499 is one of our favorite Parillas - we eat there every trip and it doesn't disapoint. It's a neighborhood restaurant with a lot of locals. The lomo is excellent and reasonably priced for the quality. We ate there twice.

La Pecora Nera - Ayacucho 1785 in Recoleta - wonderful little Italian restaurant - make reservations. It's tucked away and seemed to have few tourists.

La Pizarra Bisto on Thames in Palermo - a "blackboard" restaurant - the menu is on the board and changes regularly. The food is different - fish, chicken, rabbit and a good change from all the red meat. Food is great. Service is slow because it's small and usually crowded.

Cafe Lattente - On Thames in Palermo - best coffe we had in BA - and they have "take away" so you can grab it and take back to your apartment to drink with breakfast. We stayed on the same block so it didn't have time to get cold. Friendly staff.

Bella Italia - don't have address with me - Palermo - wonderful italian.

Will try to post more later.
