We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel, we walked the eight blocks to this Spanish restaurant and we certainly wren' t disappointed. The menu is extensive and the service is beyond belief. We had two entrees which were quite adequate for two hungry people. The wine list is good and prices not over the top. We were very happy... More

What better than sitting down with a great (and affordable) bottle of wine, and taste dozens of little platters of different Jamons and quesos?! If this were in Spain, they would call it a tapas restaurant, but they do serve full platters too.

This restaurant is located on a very central corner of Buenos Aires. The building is a typical neo french Buenos Aires belle-epoque structure, but inside it's more rustic and cozy. Service is excellent, waiters very attentive and knowledgeable about the food. I had a salmon / shrimp dish that was outstanding. The food was super fresh, exquisitely prepared and truly... More

Good food, but I little over priced. The place has good decoration but the staff is very good. Looks like they prefer that you come with reservation.

I always have to stop at this restaurant every time I am in Buenos Aires. The service is excellent and the food is very good. You have to try the Black Ham cured meat (like prosciutto) with Gruyere cheese slices... Wow... Cut thin to order. The Bife de Chorizo (steak) is excellent also. Argentinian beef is one of the best... More

Attractive & Stylish Building, unfortunately the food, wine & service were slow & just OK. While quite a few locals seemed to be there they must have known what to order. The balance of the dinner crowd the late Saturday evening our party was there were tourists who would be unlikely to return & we seemed to be treated as... More

An English menu is available. Complimentary sparkling wine was offered on arrival and when the bill was offered at the end of the meal. A complimentary appetizer was... More

Our one disappointing meal....definitely over priced and food was only so so. Service was attentive and friendly but it was the one place in BA that actively solicited for a tip. Ambience is very Spanish. Not recommended as there are many many other spots with better prices and food
