This is a great place for steak in the Puerto Madero area; the service is good and the waiter understood some English which helped in our ordering. We chose to sit outdoors which was perfect for dinner chats. The steak and wine was good and reasonably priced. A good dining experience.

Great place to have a dinner with friends after a long business day. The service is great and I recommend outdoors if weather allows. The view of Puerto Madero is beautiful.

Our family of seven, six adults and one baby loved everything about this restaurant! I wasn't sure if it would be a good choice for an active 16 month old, but it was great! The food was excellent and the staff very helpful too. Loved it and hope to go again!

Walking into Happenings with friends for dinner feels like an up-scale steak house in the US. We sat inside as the weather was humid and wanted to enjoy our time without feeling sticky. The service was excellent, attentive, but not overly bearing. As I did not order, I cannot speak to the specific menu items, but can say everything we... More

We went back to Happening after a few years and left disappointed. Waiter tried to impress by not writing down order and promptly missed beverage and starters. Steaks were right cuts but not cooked to order. And in the end, we were "reminded" loudly that tip had to come on top and in cash (which is normal in Argentina anyway).... More

This restaurant offers a great choice of food (meat and Argentinean cuisine are at the highest level) in a beautiful structure, which also has a very pleasant terrasse. The wine list is rich and the service is very good. Went there many times, always left very satisfied.

We visited this restaurant having been recommended by our guide - fabulous recommendation. The steaks were the tastiest we have ever had and the salad really fresh and generous. Good Argentian wine to go with the steaks. Helpful staff and great location, we sat outside but also plenty of seating inside. Highly recommend.

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.
