This is an expat club in the centre of Buenos Aires, near the Obelisco. You can expect very good fish and tortilla de papas. The place is quite big with profesional waiters. You might as well make a reservation.

I felt I travelled in time to the past when I arrived in Vasco Frances with the high ceiling, the chandelier, the career waiter(s), and the overall dining experience. The food was excellent and the waiter suggested we ordered less food because the portions are...More

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
