Dicen los que saben que la innovación acompañada del talento es capaz de obrar milagros, y esto, mis amigos, es precisamente a lo que nos enfrentamos. “Que Bueno Que Viniste”, así se llama este novedoso restaurante que abre sus puertas en el alma misma del barrio gótico, centro histórico de la ciudad, a pocos pasos de la Plaza del Ayuntamiento; y que promueve con carácter de primicia la unión del tradicional Tapeo con lo mejor de la cocina argentina.Su chef y creador, Ignacio Bettinsoli o como aquí le llaman: Iñaki, nos lo resume así: ”Esta propuesta además de ser única en España y en el mundo, nos permite mostrar un abanico muchísimo mas amplio de nuestra gastronomía, fusionándola con la típica tradición culinaria española que son las Tapas”. La idea madre, -nos comenta- “es dar a conocer la verdadera cocina argentina criolla y transmitirla de la manera mas pura posible, sin ensuciarla con los estereotipos ya marcados”.Quizás, hace años, un proyecto así hubiera causado otra impresión, pero visto lo visto, la conceptualización de “Tapa” va escalando posiciones en todo el mundo y acá lo vemos ya plasmado y sin pasar para nada desapercibido.“Que Bueno Que Viniste”, un nombre muy particular y muy identificativo con los argentinos al momento de tener que recibir a sus amigos en casa; y claro está, muy, pero que muy acogedor. ¿A caso con ese acento, alguien puede negarse?Parece ser que nada esta librado al azar. En cuanto a su decoración todo esta perfectamente elegido: Su elegante barra cubierta con cajas de vinos, su cálido suelo de madera, los techos en color berenjena, sus mesas altas a la entrada, todo es exquisito y ameno.Iñaki, nos pasea por su carta contándonos sobre algunas de sus delicias que no debemos de dejar de probar nunca; como por ejemplo: las típicas empanadas de carne, el flan de humita con tomaticán o el famosísimo locro salteño. Eso si, no os olvidéis tampoco de la lengua a la vinagreta ni de la trucha en escabeche al estilo patagónico y menos aún del vacio (corte típico argentino) cocido a baja temperatura con salsa criolla. Entre sus postres, por supuesto, el conocidísimo dulce de leche nunca faltará y la excelentísima calidad de sus vinos, reconocidos a nivel mundial, se ve muy bien representada gracias a una selección muy cuidada.“Que bueno que viniste” un nuevo restaurante con un concepto original, que para nada suena a extraño y que ha venido… para quedarse.Share this:TwitterFacebook6Me gusta:Me gustaBe the first to like this.

NICE CENTRAL LOCATION, INTERESTING FOOD

We went with a 50% off voucher from El Tenedor. The deal was one tapa and one main course for half price. The tapas were huge, more like generous starters (I had Argentinian patatas bravas) and the main courses were also massive (vacio). None of us could finish our main course which was a shame... read more

We booked a table for dinner on a weeknight, but when we arrived there they were closed! We waited for half an hour after our reservation and there was no sight of any staff. We tried phoning them, but there was no answer! Why take reservations and not open.? They could have at least contacted us to inform us that... More

Have tried to go here twice but on both occasions we had to leave because the whole restaurant smells like a public toilet. The food may be good but I'm yet to even try it. Please do something about your plumbing problem!

We really enjoyed our dinner here, the food was fantastic. Great Argentinian tapas followed by amazing meat and wonderful Mendozan red wine. I would definately recommend it, if you have never tried Argentinian food, here would be a good place to start!

One of my favourite restaurants in Barcelona. There are really interesting tapas dishes and all the ones I've tried had been amazing. I've been about 5 times now always with the 50% discount, it would be a bit pricey otherwise. Everyone I've taken there has loved it too!

Went here on a 50% discount offer from another website. The food was excellent with great meat and a wonderful selection of Argentinian wines. The surroundings are very pleasant and the staff are courteous and efficient. Would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone.

Even though they have meals, we were in the mood for tapas and beer. The meals that other diners ordered looked very very good. We were very pleased and plan to return.

We stumbled onto (into?) this place by total dumb luck. It was 9/11 and a holiday in Barcelona (National Day of Catalonia). Most places were closing early, and we were fleeing the crowds getting ready to parade in the Barri Gotic. The food was delicious and certainly different from the touristy tapas places on La Rambla that we'd been frequenting.... More

Who have ever thought Argentinian food could be fine and elegant? The dishes are made with a lot of lot of love and passion. I had the Chorizo as a starter and it was sooo tender and great. My main course was the salmon... And it was a dream, very great composition of all flaviours. The espuma of Dulce de... More
