Arrived at 9.30 PM, we have hardy eaten 4 small (good) plates during... 3.45 hours !!! My girlfriend was so tired that i had to ask for the check and leave with eating not even half of what we should have. The chief, "nice-nervous" guy is more speed in his behaviour than in his cooking. No gesture on the bill... More

I have been to this restaurant before in 2012 and found the degustation menu to be excellent with an innovative aproach to food not generally found in Buenos Aires. The matching wines although recognisable and good, would have added a lot to the price so I chose a bottle and a glass of sweet wine at the end for dessert.... More

Argentinian friends said that this was the place to be – well we had a really enjoyable time, the food was good, the longest meal that we had in Buenos Aires and the most expensive. Six of us – my wife, our two grown children, a friend of our son from Panama, and another Porteno friend – three foodies in... More

I went with my wife yesterday to this restaurant because we like to try new things and enjoy eating well. Located in the In-area of San Telmo the restaurant doesn't look like anything special (not that it has to, all the rest has to be good). When we made the reservation we were asked to be punctual. This is because... More

I (a devoted, but proudly unpretentious foodie) went here with my boyfriend on our last night in BA. I was excited by the small restaurant, long tasting menu, and rumored el bulli connection. i read the negative reviews too and hoped that it was just that people didn't 'get' the molecular gastronomy approach or whatever. well, the service was just...

Definitely the most expensive restaurant we ate at in Buenos Aires, the 16 steps were a major letdown. I've eaten at quite a few of the great restaurants around the world, and while the chef has his techniques down, the end result missed the most important mark: the food didn't taste good. Sure, turning a scallop into a powder is... More

It sounds like this restaurant has had some mixed reviews below so perhaps it isn't consistent. BUT when my husband & I went for lunch (so perhaps this is key as it wasn't too busy) on 29th December 2010, it was honestly the best meal I've ever had. And living in London and enjoying eating out/ gastro experiences, we've been... More

You have to be ready for adventure, and a few questionable choices - here. Reservations required, as they do one seating for lunch and two for dinner, and if you're too late, you have to join mid-stream or come back later. The food was exquisitely prepared, but don't expect everything to be within your normal comfort range. As a warning,... More

When the best part of the evening is the cab ride to a restaurant it doesn't say much for the food. We had high hopes, had heard wonderful reports and expected a foodie sensation. Halfway through the far too numerous course we wished it were all over and we could go home. Not enough diversity of textures or tastes, too... More
