Lovely setting with brick vaulted ceiling and hams hanging. Good food too with little appetisers of Spanish omelette. However our Barclay card didn't work and when the waiter brought the bill he was very quick to remind us that the tip was NOT included and...More

It was near our hotel and we were tired - and it looked nice from outside. There is, as others mention, a cover charge - for bread etc. That’s standard in a lot of London restaurants nowadays so no huge surprise. Food was “ok”. The...More

The waiter was very unfriendly. They served us not fresh food like from the microwave. It is only a tourist trap but they have a very good rate.

They charge you 52 pesos for each person on nothing! Bread that we did not eat and "nice table" The food was horrible as well, we ordered a salmon and a chicken, both recommended by the waitress and it was awful! DON'T BOTHER!

Good restaurant specializing in Spanish food with Argentine additions. Good place to try a variety of cured meats and sausages. Very pricey for what it is. Deals can be gotten on Groupon. Good service however.

They put bread on the table which we did not order and then charged us AR$120 when we ate it as well as demanding a tip! Big rip-off.

As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires,
Montserrat is defined by the historical events that
took place there and the landmarks that have stood the
test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of
this connection to history: countless public
demonstrations have passed through this square, going
back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the
streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos
