We visited Dada for dinner after a tango show at the Centro Cultural Borges (which is also highly recommended). The waiter and waitresses were very friendly and they were appreciative of our efforts to speak Spanish. Starter: six panko shrimps to share. Nothing fancy but...More

We rented an Airbnb right next to Dada, so it was serendipitous that we found Dada at all. We stopped by our second day and it quickly became our "local". The best surprise was that the food was OUTSTANDING, We had probably 10 different dishes...More

Finally, after several days in Buenos Aires, a really terrific steak. Somebody clued me in to ask for meat "muy jugoso", and I finally got a steak that was rare, not raw and not medium. And really tasty. Mustard sauce was indeed great. Not only...More

Great experience at Dada Bistro. The ojo de bife is good but the best dish we had was the medallion de lomo with mustard sauce. The staff was very polite even though we arrived almost before lunch service was about to end.

This restaurant had brilliant food. I went with 5 friends and we all loved it. The waiting staff looked after us very well. It gets busy so book ahead.

Attentive service in small cozy bustling environment. It is a bar atmosphere indeed. Wine selection was OK, gets appetizer was excellent as well as the salmon over risotto. The apple dessert was just OK. Well recommend.

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest.

We arrived early both times we went there, so we didn't need a reservation. ("Early" in Buenos Aires isn't very early compared to the USA.)
