Keep in mind that residents of Buenos Aires greatly enjoy the nightlife. This means that lunch and dinner are typically served late (lunch at 4pm, and dinner after 9pm). This means that you will either need to refine your eating schedule, or look for restaurants that remain open between lunch and dinner, where you can find a place to eat around 5 or 6pm.
