Around the world, lunch as a meal is often underrated. And between Buenos Aires’ sweet medialuna pastries for breakfast and ample steak dinners, you might just accidentally forget about lunch altogether, but that’s a big mistake. There are many great restaurants to choose from and enjoy a well-deserved break from sightseeing or shopping. Lunch in Buenos Aires can have serious charms of its own, like people watching over a nice glass of wine.
If you’re feeling casual, try the more informal route for lunch, with paper napkins and sturdy benches, but be warned that informal doesn’t mean uninspiring. Oh no. Bring your appetite and feast your eyes on the creative sandwiches and wraps at El Banco Rojo, the golden pizza at Güerrín and the plethora of Mexican sauces at Che Taco. You’ll be happy and full, and your wallet will still be too.
Otherwise, if you’re looking forward to a nice restaurant experience in Buenos Aires, lunch will not disappoint. Go for some Argentine steak at Don Julio or Miranda, or take lunch to a new level with fine dining at Sucre or Bar du Marché.
