Cafe Tortoni, Buenos Aires Reviews

  • Absolutely best coffee I ever had in America (both north and south) so far. Kinda reminds me the coffee I had when I was traveling around Italy. The complementary bread was a bit down. Otherwise I will give 5 stars. Yes I am really serious about the bread. Highly recommended

  • A classic and historic café restaurant and tango bar. Great for all meals of the day. Good tango shows, make sure to sit close to the stage (if not, poor view). A must-visit-at-least-once kinda place.

  • This place came highly recommended to see a Tango performance. The cost of 450 AR was worth it. A nice small intimate room to watch the performance. We were lucky to pick up tickets earlier in the day for that evening. It would have been nice if you could make the reservation online. Plenty of time to order and eat before the show if you wish, or just enjoy a nice glass of wine while you enjoy the performance.

  • Comfortable place to have a breakfast or meal. Excellent table service. Affordable prices (around 6 dollars for a coffee and milk with 3 croissants). Pleasant place in general.

  • An epic European coffee hpuse in the midst of South America. Great food, coffee, and dessert. Excellent bar servers as well. You can choose the same seat as a legendary author so a little research helps. Live music here is also really great.
