Neighbourhood
“San Telmo is the oldest barrio (neighborhood) of Buenos Aires. It is a well-preserved area of the Argentine metropolis and is characterized by its colonial buildings. Cafes, tango parlors and antique shops line the cobblestone streets, which are often filled with artists and dancers. A street named the "Illuminated Block" is where many of these important historical buildings can be found”

Argentinian Restaurant
“This is a San Telmo restaurant at its best: tightly packed tables, patrons knocking elbows, suited waiters, a sweaty asador and great meat. It started with one floor but now has three, including a rooftop terrace. Order your meat jugoso (rare) and the waiter might just cut it with a spoon. Like La Cabrera, it’s a bit pricier but the whole experience is a good value.”

Bar
“Along with it's 'sister' La Poesia, this is one of two traditional restaurants, very typical of old Buenos Aires. Having the same owner, they both have the same varied menu, including burgers, pastas, salads, sandwiches and some very good sharing platters (‘picadas’) . Both have a great atmosphere and interesting antique/vintage décor, without being super ‘touristy.’ Try a craft beer accompanied by a traditional ‘picada.’ A great option any time of day.”

“This is both a restaurant and outdoor café which is a great spot when you are ready to visit the famous Cementerio Recoleta. You can sit outside or inside, but recommend enjoying the ambiance outside. Great for small meals, a drink or two, tapas, and great sandwiches. This area is especially great on the weekends as you will find a great outdoor market with local arts and crafts for sale.”
