Well, I should start with my expectations - having seen a friend's photos of a whole suckling pig and an overly positive review in Pick Up the Fork, a famous Buenos Aires food blog, I had to investigate for myself when my favorite Spanish-expat friend was in town for the week. I left confused... and hungry. I'll go chronologically -... More

The suckling pig as well as the fish of the day were outstanding. Huge portions and cooked very simple, like the Argentinians like it. We've been there twice in our week in BA and enjoyed the waiters as much as the location, esp. the tiles on the wall. The place fills up after 10pm, like most places in South America.... More

Unfortunately the horrible service made the dinner a bust. We went on a Wednesday evening at 9 pm, there were 3 other tables occupied. Although we had made reservations,... More

We arrived early, 8 pm and were the only ones in the restaurant for quite a while. The service started out great but slowed down once the place started to fill up as there was only one girl running the front of house. We enjoyed our meal, Paella with pasta and a nice bottle of white from Mendoza. Good value,... More
