Elegant, delicious and moderately priced restaurants, beautiful neighborhoods, the meat is the best in the world, but their pasta is also great because of their italian origins.

Cafe Tortoni offers a quite nice Tango show for affordable prices. Julio Iglesias 20 years younger as a singer would be a good addition. His Tango CD is excellent and Volver just unsurpassable.

Puerto Madero tem a maior concentração de restaurante em uma área de fácil acesso a todos, onde andando ao longo da área você consegue comparar pratos, valores e ambiente.

Uma ótima dica para quem quer comer bem com bom custo benefício é procurar por restaurantes que tenham buffet livre de comida internacional, como o restaurante que fica dentro do Casino Puerto Madero e outros restaurantes na própria área de Puerto Madero.

Uma dica para quem quer conhecer um lugar incrível é o Asia de Cuba, um ambiente muito diferente, trazendo uma decoração relacionada a cultura asiática e gastronomia também, que por sinal é muito boa.

Sobre o Casino, a entrada é gratuita, você pode ir apenas para usar o restaurante, mas estando lá sugiro entrar na área dos jogos e conhecer, quem sabe jogar uns pesos, mas não vá com esperanças de ganhar algo, a menos que você seja um jogar expert, que não é o meu caso.

Shopping well involves cash, paying either in dollars, reales, or euros (if they give you a good rate) or changing first at arbolitos or cuevas. You have to ask around discreetly for where they are and you have to feel comfortable and safe with using them. Shoes are beautiful but not a great value. Other leather goods are, particularly jackets but not so much around Florida but instead do research.

The Argentinians are renowned for the quality of their beef and restaurants serving freshly barbecued meats ' asado ' are popular and quite plentiful. The seafood platters ' mariscos ' are exceptional for the shrimp lover.
Wines from regions such as Mendosa are popular and you can't go wrong with a good Malbec.

Get a map and study it for what is most easily accessed from where you are staying. Buses require small change or advanced purchase of tickets at an office on Calle Florida in the town centre; some say travel by bus is unsafe in certain areas e.g. La Boca. Both sides of the river inlet at The Puerto Madero are lined with an excellent choice of places to eat and the whole area is well lit, well maintained and perfect for the pedestrian.

I'd suggest having a look at the Muceo Nacional De Bellas Artes and Museo Nacional de Arte Decorativo, both quite compact. The latter is also an interesting look at a fine house of Buenos Aires as it was a century ago.

Absolutely delicious food if you're willing to pay for it. Not as cheap as I expected and I live in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I didn't have a guide book, but I was really taken with the Bi-Centennial museum and we only stumbled on it by accident. The fine arts museum was free which pleased us immensely, and it had a great variety of works that interested us.

Visit further quarters on second day e.g. Palermo viejo (nice for eating and relaxing)

Friendly, beautiful - avoid touristy tango places like Carlos
Gerland(?) hard to enjoy the show which actually is great because of all the tourists taking pictures and videos.
