Restaurants in Buenos Aires

Cafes and restaurants are a big part of Buenos Aires life. Steak Houses and Grills are very popular in Argentina-this is the country with the highest per capita consumption of meat in the world. Most Argentines have an Italian descent, you can find a lot of Italian restaurants in the city.  You can also find a variety of ethnic cuisines, Japanese, Chinese, Mexican, Thai, Indian, etc. However, here's the bad news: unless you want to eat steaks for breakfast, lunch and dinner, an average Buenos Aires restaurant is a disappointment for food, even though the decoration and ambience of the places is absolutely amazing!. Fully aware of this, we have made a list of the absolute best restaurants in Buenos Aires, Argentina. We hope this list helps you a little, and you can eat well in this city!
