Buenos Aires Restaurants

follow us

Argentina is famous for its grass-fed cows that roam the Pampas, and the best parillas (steakhouses) in the country can be found throughout the many neighborhoods of Buenos Aires. The city also boasts a variety of international cuisine, with the majority of ethnic restaurants centered in the Palermo Viejo neighborhood. Buenos Aires is also known for a great café culture, with cozy coffee shops lining most streets. Inexpensive empanada stands that serve these small baked dough triangles filled with meat and other ingredients can be found almost everywhere, and make for a delicious quick snack.


After dark, Buenos Aires has got it all: the city offers plenty of entertainment, from tango salons to nightclubs and performing arts.

Porteños tend to spend Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights in the hippest areas of the city, such as Recoleta, Palermo and Costanera. While theater performances start around 9 p.m., Argentines rarely make it to a dance club before midnight. To save yourself the embarrassment of being the first gringo on the dance floor, prepare for a late night.

Performing arts are centered in Teatro ColĂłn, which hosts the National Opera, National Symphony and National Ballet. Other professional theaters showing Broadway hits and Argentine plays can be found clustered along Avenida Corrientes.

To find out more about the best nightlife events in Buenos Aires while you are there, have a look at the Buenos Aires Herald or simply make friends with some locals -- that's the best way to see Buenos Aires' true colors when the sun goes down.
