The walled patio is lovely. We sat outside but the inside is nice as well. The service was excellent and they offer a good variety of light fare. An oasis in Recoleta.

We ate lunch here today in a lovely enclosed courtyard with seating for 40-50 people and trees and a fountain. The food was very tasty and presentation was good. Our food order arrived quickly and was priced well for the quality.

Though we came too late for the full menu, we did have a nice sandwich, with potatoes. But what's special about this place is the garden terrace, removed from the madding crowd. A true delight.

Two coffees (jarritos) and two tiny tarts (lemon pie and maracuya tart) were pesos 142, plus 10% tipping. A real rip-off, albeit the air conditioning and nice view of the patio. The waiters do not seem to be professional. The personnel at the counter awaits...More

Characterised by the French-style mansions which are
the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the

neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos
Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment

turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude
an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll
