We stopped by here for a light supper. Quiche and "caprese" tart ( which flowed wtih lots of melted cheese between layers of pastry) were both very good. Dos Escudos is clean, prices are reasonable, and it was right around the corner from our hotel....More

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy

and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest.
