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.

Saigón – Buenos Aires

Saigón brings fast-casual dining with fairly authentic flavors from Southwest Asia in the form of spicy noodle soups and salads to San Telmo and Retiro at extremely affordable prices. One of the best choices downtown for lunch.



Tanta – Buenos Aires

Tanta comes to Buenos Aires. Famed chef Gaston Acurio brings a flavorful and well-executed menu to a sophisticated casual ambience in Buenos Aires.



1810 Regional – Buenos Aires

Pleasant “museum” ambiance with array of well-executed local dishes. Try the stew sampler. Your choice of three traditional Argentine stews.



Bao Kitchen – Buenos Aires

Despite a boring décor and confused waiters, Bao Kitchen offers true-to-form Asian food done better than almost anywhere in the city (except Sunae Asian Bistro). Specialty is steamed buns.



El Mirasol – Buenos Aires

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.



Farinelli – Buenos Aires

Café with pleasant ambience and décor that offers some breakfast and several lunch items (mostly sandwiches and salads). Spotty service.



Azul Profundo – Buenos Aires

Recently remodeled. One of only a handful of restaurants in Buenos Aires specializing in seafood. Updated menu emphasizes sushi. Nice decor. Good service.



Sushi Club – Buenos Aires

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.



Import Coffee Company – Buenos Aires

Import Coffee Company has a trendy, loft-like décor. Exposed brick walls. Nicely decorated. They only sell Italian Illy espresso. Limited food options but pleasant place to spend some time sipping coffee.



Nuestro Secreto – Four Seasons Hotel – Buenos Aires

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.



Piegari Carnes – Buenos Aires

Piegari Carnes offers excellent steaks and quality service in a sophisticated, albeit somewhat stale ambiance. Very expensive.



Pony Line – Buenos Aires

Best Burger in town. Hands down. It’s expensive, but if you’ve got a craving for a really good burger, this is it.



La Galette – Buenos Aires

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.



El Tejano (ex The Alamo) – Buenos Aires

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.



Le Pain Quotidien – Buenos Aires

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



Gran Bar Danzon – Buenos Aires

Gran Bar Danzon has been the premier bar and restaurant in Buenos Aires for a decade. Drinks, dinner, or both. No better location than Gran Bar Danzon.



Negro – Buenos Aires

Marvin Gaye and a cup of coffee (Ecuadorian, Brazilian origin). Need I say more? Negro (la Cueva de Café) is great place for a cup of java. Locations downtown (Suipacha near Córdoba) and close Plaza San Martín.



Florería Atlántico – Buenos Aires

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. But for great food at a reasonable price in a fun atmosphere it’s the best choice in Buenos Aires.



The Shelter Cafe – Buenos Aires

Combine the unique and comfortable ambiance with a friendly staff, an owner dedicated to the details that make a business worth returning to (like a clean restroom), and a good cup of coffee and you’ve got the formula for a successful coffee shop.



Coffee Town – Buenos Aires

Coffee Town specializes in coffees sourced throughout the world. House blend is from Guatemala, Brazil and Colombia. Pleasant ambiance. Friendly staff. New location.



Elena – Buenos Aires

The Four Seasons’ Elena restaurant offers a rustic take on Nouvelle Cuisine with high-end steak offerings (which is of course mandatory in Argentina). Meticulously trained chefs and waiters mean consistent, high quality execution and service. Only one thing missing. A personality to call its own.



Basa – Buenos Aires

Basa is sleek and trendy. Upscale. Uptempo. Restaurant. Bar. Take your pick. Great food. Unique menu. A bit loud. If you’re looking for a traditional restaurant try one of many in La Recova four blocks away.
