The Best Restaurants in

Retiro

Filterable by restaurant characteristics

 

 

Palermo Soho, as the name implies, is Argentina's answer to New York's SoHo or Lower East Side neighborhoods. If you've never been to either one of those, well, now you can just go dine out in Palermo Soho to get that New York "state of mind" at half the price.

There are lots of trendy little boutiques and funky little restaurants and bars. From haute cuisine to fancy fast-food, you can find it all in Palermo Soho. And you can enjoy in the presence of a slightly younger and energetic crowd.

There are lots of high-rated restaurants, so we've included filters to enable you to narrow the list by type, price range and cuisine.

RATING: 75%
Cuisine(s): Burgers, Hot Dogs, Tapas - Finger Foods . Cost: $$$ . Restaurant type: Gastropub
Summary: Cervelar is a large brewpub chain that offers a wide range of craft beers on tap and imported bottled-beer as well. Mostly burgers and hot dogs, although they do have a lunch menu with a wide variety of non-bar food, like salads. Food overall is on p …

Esmeralda 924
RATING: 84%
Cuisine(s): Pizza . Cost: $$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining, Pizzeria

Bernardo de Irigoyen 366
RATING: 79%
Cuisine(s): Burgers . Cost: $$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining, Hamburger Restaurant

Posadas 1350
RATING: 92%
Cuisine(s): Gourmet Cuisine . Cost: $$$$$ . Restaurant type: Upscale Casual
Summary: Hyatt’s Duhau Restaurante y Vinoteca delivers well-executed haute cuisine with near-flawless service in a luxurious ambiance. It’s, perhaps, the most upscale and formal dining option in Buenos Aires. Classy and sophisticated.

San Martín 1015
RATING: 83%
Cuisine(s): Argentine, Eclectic Gourmet . Cost: $$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining
Summary: El Federal is comfort food, Argentine-style. Indigenous ingredients prepared in creative ways. Unfortunately, ambiance and service don’t live up to the food. Reasonable prices for such good food make El Federal worth a visit. We just wish they’d pain …

Posadas 1032
RATING: 80%
Cuisine(s): Grilled Steaks . Cost: $$$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining, Steakhouse
Summary: El Mirasol, with multiple locations is the most upscale neighborhoods, offers excellent service and great steaks. Décor in some locations is a bit boring. Wide range of salads to complement the steaks.

Uruguay 1175
RATING: 82%
Cuisine(s): American Barbecue . Cost: $$$ . Restaurant type: Gastropub
Summary: Please note: El Tejano has moved to a location in Palermo at Av. Córdoba 5267. We believe a bar that is only open in the evenings remains at the location on Paraguay. We will update this review in September of 2018.

RATING: 86%
Cuisine(s): Grilled Steaks . Cost: $$$$ . Restaurant type: Upscale Casual

Arroyo 872
RATING: 85%
Cuisine(s): Grilled Steaks, Seafood . Cost: $$$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining, Gastropub
Summary: The hottest bar in Buenos Aires might just be the best restaurant as well. A limited menu with one steak, a few fish main course items, and a handful of tapas. But what they do, they do marvelously well. Not so good for a romantic or quiet dinner. Bu …

Libertad 1161
RATING: 84%
Cuisine(s): Eclectic . Cost: $$$$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining, Gastropub

Carlos Pellegrini 1535
RATING: 77%
Cuisine(s): Argentine, Grilled Steaks . Cost: $$ . Restaurant type: Casual Dining

Av 9 de Julio, La Recova
RATING: 86%
Cuisine(s): Japanese . Cost: $$$$ . Restaurant type: Upscale Casual
Summary: Sushi club gives you sushi-fusion with creative variations in a sleek and sexy décor with above-average service. Be forewarned. It’s a bit expensive for Buenos Aires.
