  • Balcarce Street starts at the Casa Rosada (the Argentine Government House) and to the South there are various bars and restaurants that make it a nice walking area.

  • Balcarce Street start at the pink house and goes into the side of San Telmo. It is in this neighborhood where preserves its biggest attraction to visit, with a rather old-fashioned.

  • The Palace Balcarce is the residence that commanded to build Don Jose Balcarce, Godson of the Gral. José de San Martín to move in 1913 to the then new neighborhood of Recoleta, away from the area of Buenos Aires that were more hit by the fever yellow and where they lived previously local patrician families. English-inspired, but with successful eclecticism (see the beautiful Spanish garden, magnificent panelling and the trimmings of the spiders of Gallic tradition), it served as a residence to the family for two decades and today houses offices, party room, and a restaurant. On the occasion of a dinner in this last I went with my partner in the framework of a dinner by steps sold over the internet. Fortunately we went well early because, averaging ten in the evening, the dining rooms looked to deal with all the tables and the waiters/ACE lost full control of the situation, especially before the apparent lack of a master, or head of room. Particularly to us this us hit with a major waiting between the third and the fourth step which, in fact, almost we lose because when we got the waitress approached, mentioned us that already it would bring us the dessert and had to remind him that we had descent the last dish of the agreed menu. In addition, several times withdrew me silverware from the table with dishes that was and I had to ask for them back. Beyond that, the food was delicious and perfectly seasoned, but the portions of each dish were small. For us it was something obvious: we went to try some signature dishes, chat and take a rich wine (although the letter is not wide). Obviously, many people did not understand this and sought to withdraw more than satisfied when, in my humble opinion, a dinner of this style in a similar framework is more conducive to appreciating the quality than the quantity. In end, only would criticize the bread, that was half Gummy, and rescued the hake black and the volcano of chocolate (of the more rich that I tested). The place is really beautiful, there is a charming balcony which overlooks the garden and no one bothered us when, a time that we left the table, we commend to a tour of some of the rooms and the courtyard for taking some pictures next to the picturesque fountain. Is see some signs of the step of the time in them walls and me seemed a crime for a place so see that the tables in the dining is had armed with until five types of chairs different (even had ones of cano!). But in general, we comply and would return at any other occasion that, of course, should be special, while treating the partner or a family member.

  • On the day of yesterday we were celebrating a birthday. Attention leaves much to be desired. The same 2 girls that they attended to our table, worked at the same time attending a birthday of 15 held in an adjoining room, and every now and then came to meet us. We pay 370 pesos more gratuity (per person), the 'free' drink consisted of pitchers is water (tap) natural, ice asked him and brought him to count drops, generic cola beverage pitchers, and a passable wine. To the reach us served for 15 people, a total of five small "bruschette" of ham crude and some rings of sausage raw (ten), that Yes well presented. Entry consisted of peas soup!, or a chiquiiiiiiiiiiita of carrot and boiled chicken bruschetta, which was a little better, the main course rack of pork with sweet potatoes (which arrived cold to the table). And the dessert a semi fredo. cold had nothing, was a nearby of the size of a tin of pate with a mousse hard as a stone, and a heart of dulce de leche so hard that it bent calmly spoon. The girls were not well predisposed, perhaps due to the amount of work that had (we had to change a baby, and we were told that they did not have space for this, and instructed MOM to change the baby to the chairs outside to outdoor!) (let us note that it is winter, and it was night). There was no water in the bathrooms. And chairs placed around the table, did not agree with the fine atmosphere, were on plastic spout black office chairs. The curtains were dirty full of accumulated Earth. What if rescue is having shared a meeting between friends, and meet a traditional Palace in Buenos Aires.

  • I went to dinner 30/045/16 with a reservation made by suppleness with up to 40%. It was all perfect. The reality is that the best is the place. The service was good and the food also. Share input and ask a main and a dessert each one accompanied of two waters, a bottle of wine of $380 and two glasses of champagne of courtesy. Total $680. It is excellent for a romantic dinner. I will return and what I recommend.

  • A total disappointment. We went by a groupon for brunch and the Cafe is like the one hospital either. The patio is cute but not enabled for chilly days. What he said in the groupon was not what you were. I said that you could choose between pudding and carrot cake and brought a pudding that was purchased. Natural cooked ham was not fresh. Squeezed orange juice was box and the scon of blue cheese had any less blue cheese. The cakes were not good, and I think the only thing salvageable was the coffee. Do not lose time.

  • The negative comments are very eloquent. No go! I wonder, what is the object of bid on Groupon? Cheat people? Why why Groupon is still accepting an offer that is a scam? Then not you can rely on Groupon. Thank you who are encouraged to make their criticism publicly! Unfortunately I read them after purchase. We decided not to go. I did not go to fight with scammers. I prefer to lose the money.
