Buenos Aires has a long coastline along the Rio de la Plata and it's puzzling that there are not more seafood joints taking advantage of the waterfront views. This light and airy restaurant located inside the historic Fisherman’s Clubhouse, on a dock close to the Aeroparque airport, does make the most of its commanding views. It's also the best place in the city to fill up on fish and seafood. The menu is low-key, well-priced, and rustic; the portions are hearty and the ingredients fresh. Start with a generous seafood salad that includes crab, octopus, and shrimp in a simple lemon juice and olive oil dressing. Black hake, the staple Argentine fish, comes fried in butter and whisky with roasted potatoes. The view and the atmosphere are lovely and it’s a refreshing alternative to crowded, posh options nearby though it is popular on weekend afternoons and you may have to wait for a table.
