Restaurants in (Ezeiza) Ministro Pistarini International Airport (EZE)

Persicco serves what’s often considered the best ice cream in Buenos Aires, so the new airport outpost of this Italian-style gelatería is a pre-departure must-do.

Argentina’s McDonald’s have long featured what America’s Golden Arches are just beginning to add: an attached Starbucks-style coffee shop. Enjoy a double cappuccino and the expansive views of bustling Ezeiza on the McCafe’s large outdoor seating area.

Don’t expect the same tasty pies from this porteño pizzeria’s Ezeiza location. The Italian menu here is basic, with classic sandwiches (ham and cheese; tomato, basil, and mozzarella, etc.) and overpriced salads. It is also a full coffee shop, with espresso, lattes, and pastries.

Hands down the best option for a sit-down dinner, La Pausa serves excellent Argentine cuisine like grilled bife de chorizo (sirloin strip) or four-cheese gnocchi in a spacious, low-lit dining room.

This bright, colorful Spanish chain serves up some of the airport’s healthiest fast food.

Don’t judge yet. This American chain is a different creature in Argentina, having added waiter service and a rather refined atmosphere to its offering of hamburgers and fries. Ezeiza’s new 4,300-square-foot outpost—open 24/7—also serves the only truly affordable fare in the airport.
