Casual Dining

in buenos aires

No need to wear a jacket or a dress. In fact, you can likely get in the front door in pair of Bermuda shorts. Our picks for the top restaurants in this genre focus on making the dining experience comfortable and unintimidating, and most are more reasonably priced than those in our upscale casual dining category. Some are cozy and quaint. Some are sleek and trendy. Many serve the same quality of cuisine you’d get the world’s most prestigious restaurants but the ambience is warm and inviting. These are places you visit twice week, not twice a year.

Trapiche Fond de Cave - Distinctively Argentine



Cafe Rivas
Cuisine(s): Argentine, Eclectic . Rating: 4.6 stars . Cost: $$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining Summary:

This quaint and meticulously run little bistro in San Telmo is, for our money, the best casual dining experience in the city, whether for brunch, lunch or dinner. It’s a first-class outing.




Faena Sunsets



Peron Peron
Cuisine(s): Argentine . Rating: 4.3 stars . Cost: $$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining, Gastropub Summary:

If we’d have know that Evita could inspire a restaurateur to put out rich, sumptuous comfort food and equally good beer we’d have changed our political leanings years ago. Don’t miss Peron, Peron.




Patio Bullrich



El Burladero
Cuisine(s): Spanish . Rating: 4.5 stars . Cost: $$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining Summary:

El Burladero is a classy, modern-day take on Spanish cuisine in a sophisticated and comfortable ambience. It’s not authentic. It’s better than authentic! And the mid-day fixed-price menu is a steal. This is a first-class casual-dining experience.




Faena Sunsets



Nuestro Secreto
Cuisine(s): Eclectic . Rating: 4.5 stars . Cost: $$$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining Summary:

Nuestro Secreto is one of the most pleasant dining experiences in the city. A creative menu featuring items from their wood-burning clay oven. First-class.

KOI Dumplings, in Palermo Hollywood, gets Asian street food right, teamed up with good locally brewed artisanal beer. There’s a laid-back atmosphere with a big rooftop terrace. One of the few good Asian dining outings in Buenos Aires.

The Pizza Only True Love
Cuisine(s): Italian, Pizza . Rating: 4.5 stars . Cost: $$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining, Pizzeria Summary:

The Pizza OTL (Only True Love) is the sexiest, candlelit pizza parlour in town. Superb casual ambience and great pizza add up to The Pizza OTL perhaps being the best pizzería in Buenos Aires.

Brasserie Petanque
Cuisine(s): French . Rating: 4.5 stars . Cost: $$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining Summary:

Brasserie Petanque hits the nail on the head, bringing real French culinary classics to Buenos Aires in a high-energy atmosphere that makes it all the more special. Kudos to the guy in the Napolean disguise for this “trimophe”.

13 Fronteras
Cuisine(s): Eclectic Gourmet . Rating: 4.5 stars . Cost: $$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining Summary:

13 Fronteras is the dream, and now reality, of U.S. born chef, Dave Soady. The chef utilizes local ingredients prepared with classic European techniques and a big dollop of imagination. This is gourmet food in a bistro setting at bistro prices. A very big “GO”




Trapiche Fond de Cave - Distinctively Argentine



Narda Comedor
Cuisine(s): Eclectic Gourmet . Rating: 4.4 stars . Cost: $$$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining Summary:

An ultra-casual dining experience in a cheery and comfortable ambiance with good service and a menu full of interesting dishes that are well-executed. albeit served with a lofty price-tag.

El Pobre Luís
Cuisine(s): Grilled Steaks . Rating: 4.4 stars . Cost: $$$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining, Steakhouse Summary:

El Pobre Luís isn’t La Brigada. And it isn’t La Cabrera. It’s arguably better. Because it’s received less publicity there’s less hoopla, less arrogance, and shorter lines to get in. Very good service. A great ambience. And some super-duper steaks. Perhaps our favorite steakhouse in Buenos Aires!

Gaston Acurio brings his highly popular Peruvian seafood restaurant, Cebichería La Mar, to Buenos Aires in Palermo Hollywood. In a city that sorely lacks good seafood options, La Mar is a breath of fresh (ocean) air. With excellent food and service without any serious competition, the cebichería is sure to be hit with the trend craving locals and visiting travelers alike.

The Nim Bar
Cuisine(s): Tapas - Finger Foods . Rating: 4.4 stars . Cost: $$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining, Gastropub Summary:

The Nim Bar has an impressive upscale ambience, creative menu, 30 craft beers on tap and bar tenders that know their stuff. We weren’t impressed with the “nachos” that weren’t nachos but the Asian-style ribs were a winner. This is makes our list of the Top-10 Upscale Bars in Buenos Aires.




Patio Bullrich



Le Moulin de la Fleur
Cuisine(s): Coffee - Bread - Pastries, French . Rating: 4.4 stars . Cost: $$ . Restaurant type: Cafe, Casual Dining Summary:

Faena Sunsets



La Panadería de Pablo
Cuisine(s): Eclectic . Rating: 4.4 stars . Cost: $$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining Summary:

La Panadería de Pablo has a comfortable but elegant décor with a friendly and attentive staff of young waiters. The menu is creative, using unique spices and herbs, and some good cooking techniques, to make what would typically be an ordinary dish, like that pork shoulder, into a gourmet-quality dish. Despite minor lapses of execution, still one of the best casual dining restaurants in Buenos Aires.




Trapiche Fond de Cave - Distinctively Argentine



Rodízio
Cuisine(s): Grilled Steaks . Rating: 4.4 stars . Cost: $$$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining, Steakhouse Summary:

Rodízio is a Brazilian-style steakhouse-restaurant that offers meats grilled on a spit, carved tableside, and an elaborate buffet of salads and antipasto. Upscale, with great service, Rodízio offers a slightly different take on grilled meats in Buenos Aires.

Cucina Paradiso
Cuisine(s): Italian . Rating: 4.4 stars . Cost: $$$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining Summary:

Casual Italian cuisine for trattoria lovers. Mostly pastas and risottos, well-executed in a pleasant atmosphere. About as authentic as you’ll find in the Buenos Aires. Reasonably priced.




Berlina Cerveza



Entrecot
Cuisine(s): Eclectic . Rating: 4.4 stars . Cost: $$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining Summary:

Entrecot’s menu may be somewhat typical, but the emphasis on using grass-fed beef is unique. Steaks and burgers featuring this quality beef are center-stage at Entrecot. A friendly staff of waitresses and a clean and tastefully decorated restaurant make Entrecot a good choice for dining out in Recoleta.




Faena Sunsets



Hierbabuena
Cuisine(s): Coffee - Bread - Pastries . Rating: 4.3 stars . Cost: $$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining Summary:

Look up “cute little bakery and bistro” in the Encyclopedia Britannica and you’ll see a photo of Hierbabuena. This place is just cool. Just moved to the top spot for Sunday Brunch just barely edging out our former favorite, Uco in Palermo Hollywood. Hierbabuena is a “must-go” for breakfast and lunch.




Trapiche Fond de Cave - Distinctively Argentine



La Galette
Cuisine(s): French . Rating: 4.3 stars . Cost: $$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining Summary:

French! Well, very close, anyway. Both savory and sweet crepes done as authentically as you will find in Buenos Aires. Good salads and a French plate of the week.
