Had the lunch brunch -- lots of choices and something for everyone -- also had the a la carte menu dinner too Both were excellent -- and remember, In Argentina, you cannot add the gratuity into the bill if you are paying by credit card -- it must always be separate and cash only

The service was excellent at the restaurant. I can't say the food was exceptional but very consistent and good quality. I'd recommend it if you're too tired to leave the hotel and seek other places to dine.

I ate so little at their buffet lunch that I felt like McDonalds. Not good. No flavor. Sauces. Not fresh. The hotel is surrounded by great places. Do not eat here.

I am not a big breakfast person but I love pan cakes when I have breakfast. The pan cakes here were ámalo pieces of bread and not pan cakes by even McDonalds standards. Pan cakes aré not hard to prepare.

I stayed at the Buenos Aires Hilton in two different occasions, a total of two weeks. I can only praise the hotel itself and its restaurant. Breakfast is a buffet, which is second to none. Sunday's brunch is to die for. Your own chef prepares either eggs as you like them, chorizos or Argentinian beef cuts. Unfortunately I am no... More

I was here for dinner. The menu is extremely limited and the atmosphere kind of depressing, empty and dark…not what you would expect from a Hilton restaurant. I had the Gnocchi, literally one of the five options from the menu, and it was just ok. Around Hilton in Porto Madero there are way better options.

My wife and I ate here for lunch on a rainy day when we didn't feel like going out. While we liked the Hilton, we didn't care for the food at this restaurant or the prices. The buffet had a decent selection of food that wasn't actually bad, it just wasn't very good. Most everything was rather tasteless. I probably... More

Business dinner with colleagues. The booth itself was a little uncomfortable. The seating was very low compared with those who sat in chairs around the booth. Dinner choice was fine. Meal choice depended upon whether one chose starters plus entree or entree or dessert, etc. Food was well-prepared and present. Quiet ambience. Very good dining experience.

We stayed at the Hilton and ate here because our first choice restaurant was closed on Monday. The menu looked enticing, and the main courses were good. But the starters were odd; they were mere arrangements of food items on the late without much attention to how they complimented one another. The wine list had some nice selections, but my... More

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighbourhood Profile
Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect combination of old and new. The river provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away. Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this neighbourhood a unique destination in a city as busy as Buenos Aires. The restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the docks make it a prime spot for nights out and have come to symbolise this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
