Parva – Buenos Aires

Parva proves that good things come in small packages. Delicious sandwiches, burgers, wraps and quiche. And a few other good things too. It’s very small and you pay at the counter. But the food is good. Very good.



Le Moulin de la Fleur – Buenos Aires

Le Moulin de la Fleur brings another French restaurant to the Buenos Aires restaurant scene, offering casual French fare in the form of tartines, quiche and salads. And, of course, lots of bread. A well-executed menu offering inexpensive food with a French personality.



Entrecot – Buenos Aires

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.



Abocado – Buenos Aires

Abocado is small. But good things come in small packages. A clever, well-executed menu of burgers, sandwiches and salads accompanied by some quality craft beer on tap. All at reasonable prices in a clean, comfortable environment.



1516 Cervecería – Buenos Aires

1516 Cervecería’s new location in Recoleta, serving artisanal beer from local brewers Antares, Cheverry and Ogham, has a well-executed, creative menu, better than similar types of bars in the area. There’s also a location in Palermo and one at the Beach Resort, Cariló.



Bar de Carnes – Buenos Aires

Bar de Carnes is first-class fast-casual. Gourmet burgers and sandwiches with interesting accompaniments and munchies in a pleasant ambience, with prices that are even more pleasant. Good, cold craft-beer on tap. We love this place!



Páru Inkas Sushi & Grill – Buenos Aires

Páru Inkas, despite a pricey menu, is the best option in Belgrano and Recoleta for Peruvian Nikkei cuisine. Sleek decor. Good service. Well-executed menu.



El Sanjuanino – Buenos Aires

El Sanjuanino is a favorite of Porteños and tourists alike, with quirky nostalgic décor and a wide variety of well-executed traditional regional menu items. Don’t miss the house wine served in a traditional pingüino decanter.



El Cuartito – Buenos Aires

This place is Argentine with a capital "A". Much better pizza than your typical slice of pie in Buenos Aires and funky, loveable ambiance.



Café Blue’s – Buenos Aires

Café Blue’s has a well-executed, unique menu, excellent, friendly service, at rock-bottom prices. One of Ollie O’s favorite casual-dining spots in Buenos Aires.



Jay’s – Buenos Aires

Jay’s has real pancakes and waffles with butter and Aunt Jemima syrup. French toast, bacon, eggs and hash-browns. Hot wings. Fried Chicken. Apple Pie. NUFF SAID!



El Tejano (ex The Alamo) – Buenos Aires

Fantastic Texas-style barbecue, good, cold, artisanal beer, and both sporting event son the tube. NUF SAID!



Le Pain Quotidien – Buenos Aires

For coffee, breakfast, lunch, afternoon merienda, or dinner, Le Pain Quotidien is a smart choice.



Möoi – Buenos Aires

Möoi offers a creative menu of breakfast, lunch and dinner items, typically well-executed. One of the best casual dining options in Buenos Aires.



Roux – Buenos Aires

Using traditional French technique, Chef Rebaudino has created gourmet dishes in the grand French style, paying attention to every detail, from meticulous plating to creating complex sauces that bring out all the potential of these fabulous, but rarely experienced, local ingredients. Service and ambiance to match. Best elegant option for lunch in Buenos Aires.



Bogotá – Buenos Aires

A sleek, modern take on the classic café, with a Colombian theme. Full breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. The restaurant is usually full with a crowd ranging from 18 to 80 years old.



La Pecora Nera – Buenos Aires

Small formal, restaurant. Elegant decor. More French than Italian despite the name. Superb execution and service. One the best formal dining options in Buenos Aires.



La Bourgogne – Buenos Aires

Celebrated French restaurant in the city’s grand old Alvear Hotel. Perfect execution. Starched but accommodating service in a modern but elegant ambiance. The only thing missing is imagination.
