Rating: Stars . Restaurant Type: Steakhouse . Grilled Steaks . Cost: . El Mirasol peddles high-quality grilled steaks to the city's elite. The decór is slightly dated, but execution and service are consistently high.
Recently remodeled. One of only a handful of restaurants in Buenos Aires specializing in seafood. Updated menu emphasizes sushi. Nice decor. Good service.
Astrid y Gastón in Mexico City can’t surpass the phenomenal restaurant they own in Lima. But it sure comes close. Superb in every category.
Ollio O’s choice for Indian cuisine in Buenos Aires. Sophisticated decor and real Indian cuisine. That’s right. Garam Masala and Basmati rice. Really!
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.

Rating: Stars . Restaurant Type: Formal Dining . Eclectic . Cost: . Small restaurant. Elegant decor. More French than Italian despite the name. Superb execution and service. One the best formal dining options in BA.
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 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.
Yes, somewhat expensive by BA standards. But worth it. Piegari is the finest Italian food restaurant in Buenos Aires. End of sentence. End of paragraph. End of conversation.
