There is a phrase that is repeated: the Tortoni is the oldest café in Argentina. Founded in 1858, it has a history dating back 150 years and is still open and running. This place, which could well be transformed into a museum and because it seems to have scoured the country serves, nevertheless a coffee like all others. But it is not like any other coffee in Buenos Aires, they all seem a far cry from Tortoni ...
It is a restaurant where you can enjoy spectacular filled churros, with a good sub. It is a rich choice for breakfast or snack, although it is always crowded. There are a few restaurants in the same chain, but for me, the most recommended is located on the waterfront, and has a fantastic view of the sea. The menu is good, but there is nothing better than churros.
The Confitería Las Violetas is a famous bar, teahouse and confectionery located at the corner of Rivadavia and Medrano in the Almagro neighborhood of Buenos Aires. It belongs to the group of "Bares Notables" of the city. It was inaugurated on September 21, 1884 and remodeled in the 1920s. It has decorated windows, curved glass doors, French windows and Italian marble floors. In 1998 it was declared a site of cultural interest and was subsequently restored between January to June 2001. Wooden coverings were restored as well as chandeliers and the ceiling. The original floor was unrecoverable but another was built respecting original colors and forms. Fortunately the facade was fully recovered and kept its original materials.
This place is hard to imagine. And if possible, to experience it. You enter the room, but not before spending a few moments contemplating the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rosario, standing upright in what were once silos to store grain, and is almost attached to the restaurant. You reach Davis by dodging diners ve decided to take advantage of the breeze coming from the contiguous Parana River and shelter from the sun under large umbrellas. In the living room, there is wood everywhere that gives it an overwhelming warmth where diners can enjoy a menu of international cuisine and taste full-bodied red wines, like the Sirah from Callia's winery. Through the large windows facing the river huge ships under different flagscan be seen, which circulate with thousands of tons of corn or soy that were loaded at the Port of Rosario. The microclimate and the service provided by the waiters are unrivalled. If you go to Argentina, visit Rosario and let yourself go with the excesses of a good dessert at Davis.

We wanted to eat the famous Patagonian lamb, and asked what restaurant they recommended us. Among the ones that we were mentioned, we were struck by its name, La Tablita. So we booked a table for after the tour of the Perito Moreno Glacier, and we went for dinner. The first thing we noticed when we entered was the home where they had put lambs roasted on sticks and stood up vertically. We had not seen anything like this before. The restaurant, all wooden, was very cozy. We were recommended to to order a serving of lamb for 2 (if you see the picture, you know why). Calafate ice cream: Exquisite.
Siga la Vaca is a good restaurant that you'll find in Puerto Madero, in the part of the city that is most popular with tourists. It's open every day from 12 noon until the "last customer". It specialises in steak, but here you can enjoy all kinds of grilled meat - beef, pork, chicken, offal, sweetbreads, sausages, black pudding ... the menu is all-inclusive, so you can have an unlimited variety of meats with salad and fries, as well as a drink (wine, beer or soda) and a dessert. The price is fixed, and varies according to the day of the week and the time of day, costing between $ 49 and $ 65 per person. I really like it. The food is good, and the prices are great for the amount you can eat. The meals are self-service, with the waiters only bringing you drinks and dessert. A great place to go with a group of friends for a special occasion.
The Trattoria Napolitana Vespoli is an ideal place to enjoy pasta and the best Italian cuisine. The Vespoli family arrived in the country in 1890 and opened this restaurant in 1910, which is the first sorrentineria in Argentina. It's adorned with typical Italian colourful and cheerful paintings and posters. It specializes in pasta, of which I would like to highlight the Sorrentinos Don Torcuato, stuffed with ham and mozzarella, and the delicious Sorrentinos Vespoli, stuffed with ricotta and vegetables. The dessert of the house is the Don Chiche, in honour of Chiche Vespoli, ve manages the trattoria with help from his nephews. It's a family business run cordially by its members and it doesn't have a chain.
This bar, which was the first Irish bar in Rosario, has become one of the most popular places in the area due to its excellent location and long hours. The meals are the usual for any American bar: pizzas, pies, snacks, salads of various kinds, schnitzel, potato chips, hot and cold sandwiches in regular or pita bread, hot dogs, and the ever classic beer and chips, olives and peanuts . At noon on sunny days, the terraces are always full and it's hard to find place outside. This very well set up and what more striking are the gorgeous orange and pink begonias that cover everything. You can imagine that when I went, around 11 am, I found a few people having coffee inside, the maid cleaning the glass, and the gardener watering the plants. The rest public usually gets there around 1 in the afternoon or after that time. There is a WI-Fi area and AC. It's open Sunday to Thursday: From 7:00 to 1:00. Fridays and Saturdays: 7:00 to 3:00
Like the old Café Tortoni, the Black Cat Café is on the list of places declared 'Cafés Notables of Buenos Aires'. No wonder as this beautiful corner of Avenida Corrientes is one of the most charming places to stop for coffee, tea or dinner. The Black Cat was founded in 1927. Its shelves crammed with spices and teas seem not to have changed since then. The cafe also serves as a deli and dinner is served to the accompaniment of jazz bands. The cafe is part of the life of the Corrientes night owl. It is the perfect place to stop before or after going to the movies or the theater or browsing in the bookstores.
I was in Argentina when hunger hit and I was looking for somewhere good to eat. Interestingly, there are not many places to eat in the area. Right next to the main square I found this place that had a lot of people eating there so I decided to stop. The steak was spectacular. The waiter warned me that the bill would be 60 pesos as the meal was for two people. He told me to have half and charged me 30 pesos. I can only say it was delicious. And the place has a bit of everything: restaurant, pizzeria, ice cream, pastry ...
