Since 1927 Chiquilín Restaurant has been heir to the style and tradition of the bodegón porteño. Due to its proximity to the Justice Tribunals, as well as to the financial and commercial districts downtown, during the day executives and jurists alike seek the colorful and calm environment.

At night, the refined bohemian style, decorated in classic rioplatense fashion, offers the opportunity of a night to remember to those who look for excellence in food and service surrounded by the traditional atmosphere of an iconic landmark of Buenos Aires that is sought by local theatre thespians and musicians as well as people from everywhere in the country.
