The Victoria is a nice bar, busy with a lunch crowd. The place is full of suits, no doubt taking a well-deserved break from running the country, given the Victoria’s location slap-bang opposite Argentina’s National Congress building.


The lunches look good, the waiters are attentive, the view from the window seats dominated by the imposing Parliament building, but overall I can’t find anything particularly notable about. The waiter tells me that the last renovation was 4 years ago but he didn’t know how long there has been a bar here and was not especially interested, he just wanted to know what I wanted to order.
