When the Argentine weather is beautiful and the sunshine is calling your name, there is no reason to be cooped up inside. Not even when you are hungry. Buenos Aires has a number of great restaurants where you can enjoy dining in the open air, including eating outside near the water, on the rooftops and on the city sidewalks.
For a special meal, head to one of Buenos Aires' waterfront restaurants, like the picturesque El Muelle Restaurante for plates of fresh Mediterranean food and panoramic views of the river, or the dockside Cabaña Las Lilas for a good cut of meat and a glass of wine in Puerto Madero.
If you prefer eating outside with a dose of people watching, opt for a table on the sidewalk at eateries like 1810 Cocina Regional for its delicious Argentine empanadas, Tiendas Naturales with its international flair and Cafe La Poesia for its local bohemian charm.
However, if you seek ambiance and a bit of sky with your meal, try some rooftop dining at Lotus Neo Thai, which will temporarily transport you to Asia, or Decata, for urban lounging and cake next to the fairgrounds.
