Café San Juan information
Lonely Planet review
Having studied in Milan, Paris and Barcelona, celebrity TV-chef Leandro Cristóbal now runs the kitchen at this renowned San Telmo bistro. Start with fabulous tapas, then delve into the grilled Spanish octopus, molleja (sweetbreads) cannelloni and the amazing pork bondiola (deliciously tender after nine hours’ roasting). Most of the seafood is flown in daily from Patagonia. Reserve for lunch and dinner.
If you can't get a table here, try the Café San Juan La Cantina , located a few blocks away and has a different menu.
