The history of the restaurant Vivanco -located in General Bartolomé Miter 74 Tigre Centro takes us straight to the beginning Italian Rowing Club.
In 1908 Luis Amadeo Savoy the then Duke of Abruzzo, visited Argentina at the invitation of the President Julio Argentino Roca.
At a regatta organized in his honor in the Paraná Delta, the young prince noticed that there were no rowers left in the Italian community and expressed his wish that in the future these waters should be plied by boats bearing the insignia in the colors of his country carried.
So, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary, the club was founded and the headquarters were established with a building called “The Chalet” where social meetings were held, the boats were stored and the rowers in training found accommodation.
In 1911, the official inauguration of the headquarters took place, at which the flags of both nations were raised: Argentina and Italy; And ten years later, a neighboring property called “Quinta Vivanco” which currently serves as a clubhouse and restaurant
Eating in this restaurant can be an excuse to “row” until the beginning of the 20th century.
Vivanco has a right and a wrong, so as you explore the nooks and crannies of this fascinating property, you may forget that the food is served on your plate.
The gastronomic experience brings this with it as “yapa”. Opportunity to view nautical tropies and the details of this luxurious construction such as the impressive wooden staircase that leads to the upper floor, where social and business events take place.
From the terrace you have a privileged view of the river and the emblematic landscape of the Tigre.
