A great area for restaurants and walks by the river. On the opposite side is the "new" Buenos Aires with hundreds of luxury highrises. Nice to visit but not to live! Our favorite restaurant is Tratoria Parolacia, especially at lunch time when you can take advantage of the Menu Ejecutivo--quite inexpensive for this upscale establishment. By the wy, the city's most famous steak house, Cabana Las Lilas, is located here.
A 5 block walk from our home, Puerto Madero is a revamped dockside area. Its converted redbrick buildings contain upscale steakhouses popular with tourists and business lunchers. Sleek skyscrapers house multinational corporations and high-value apartments. Trails loop around several lakes at the wildlife-rich Costanera Sur Ecological Reserve, which draws families and joggers. Spanning the docks, Puente de la Mujer is a graceful suspension bridge.
Went there in the afternoon, took wonderful photos during the golden hours and enjoyed the beautiful sunset
After a not the best dinner ever, we walked and surprise for me, a lot of people at 11:00 pm on a Monday!. Very safe.
Lunch & Dinner: Fresh Market; Cabana Las LilasOutdoor Enthusists: walk or use your roller blades to go along the River in Puerto Madero
Excellent place to eat, hace some coffee or just walk along the bay.
Nice place to walk and to eat, lot of great restaurants
Fantastic restaurants and super modern area of Buenos Aires
Puerto Madero is a modern development on the old wharfs of Buenos Aires. It is home to the fantastic Fortabat private art collection as well as the very trendy Faena hotel. Many traditional restaurants also have branches there. The Costanera Sur nature reserve is on the east side of Puerto Madero (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Costanera_Sur_Ecological_Reserve). It is perfect for bird watchers and leisurely walks with great view os the city.
