MAKE A RESERVATION folks. The food is great the service was so so , they have an English menu feel free to ask for it. Their Carpaccio is to die for.The only downside is the huge portions meant to be shared which prevents to order two different meals if only two people go there.

We (4 adults one baby) went there by recommendation. Reserved a table at 10 PM in the afternoon, and the person on the phone assured us there would be no problem. When we arrived at the restaurant there was a huge ammount of people waiting already, but we assumed that they did not have a reservation. When we asked one... More

This place was recommended to us by a chef and he was SO right! The atmosphere is really nice (sit in the back with the view of the water if you can), the food is delicious and the service is impeccable. Warning: all the dishes are for 2 people are more, so go with a friend who likes the same... More

I wasn't sure about this place at first as it's down with all the food franchise places in Puerto Madero, but the quality of service and food was the best we experienced during our stay in BA. Most of the pasta and risotto dishes are ordered and presented as double helpings, which worked fine for us as we were happy... More

My family came here after hearing good word of mouth. Marcelo did not disappoint. Everyone enjoyed their food and the portions were huge. Plenty of leftovers. The price was reasonable and the waitstaff was very good. We shall return...

Natives, ex pats, and the hotel all recommended this restaurant and it's certainly for a good reason. The server was friendly and helpful. He made sure we didn't over order food and recommended some wonderful options. All the plates were beyond adequate to share.

We went to Marcelo's in Puerto Madero at 8:00 pm and were the fifth table taken. By 9:00 the place was full. Being only moderately hungry, on the advice of the waiter, we ordered one dish to share, the fettuccine del mar along with a bottle of Argentinian Pinot noir. The plate was easily big enough for two to share.... More
