Buenos Aires

I got myself into some business in Argentina and spent a few days in Buenos Aires, finally visiting South America even if just for a few days. With good advice from friends and colleagues I had a great time around eating and touring to some extent. Here are a few ideas to tour around the city and have a great time enjoying some of the best restaurants in town


This is the view from one of the buildings around Puerto Madero…



And a couple more in the evening…



Opera House in “9 de Julio” street


The Obelisk… the Argentinean flag as we know it was first waved in this right spot…


Fun fact, our departure flights were delayed for a national strike day which we took advantage of to go around around bit more around and enjoy this beautiful city…


Plaza Serrano, heart of Barrio de Palermo



When in Buenos Aires a trip to La Boca is mandatory, it is said to be home of the early Italian immigrants. Its popular and colorful ambiance is a delight to go around as you walk through “El Caminito”, perhaps the most popular and touristy street with a few restaurants and shops.

Bienvenidos a La Boca…



Needless to say that this barrio is home to the second most successful Argentinean soccer team, Boca Juniors…





Walking around La Boca…

As it is also very well known, Argentina is famous for meat, here are some of the restaurants I was advised to go to…

I strongly recommend to check out reviews to avoid being dragged into touristy expensive places. El Gran Paraiso is just around the corner of El Caminito and it’s totally worth every single peso to enjoy having lunch in this typical and historical patio…



Another suggestion for a business lunch is Mirasol…



Another very fancy place (a bit more for tourists and business dinners) is Cabaña Las Lilas



As we were staying at Sofitel we had good dinner…



Bonus tip… across Sofitel you will find a place called “La Florerìa”, serving some of the best cocktails in town frequented mostly by locals…
