I was unsure whether to give them a try or not, because of the mixed reviews they are getting. Unfortunately, it turns out that I should have listened to the critical TA reviews: To me Casa Saltshaker is a stiff and unwelcoming place with average food, paired with a very high price for BA ...and a pretentious attitude towards guests....

We're sorry to hear you didn't enjoy yourself. Not knowing exactly when you were here we can't point to something in specific that we might correct - however, I'd have to say that "mixed reviews" is a bit of a stretch - less than 5% of the reviews here, including your own, have been negative, and we hope that means...

We had a great time with chef Dan. We were lucky that the other guests were fun, friendly and interesting (we ended having drinks with another couple we met there the next night). The food was artful, classy, and very tasty. I saw and tasted a real focus on seasonal veg, and the proteins were largely fish, which was a... More

We went with my boyfriend during early November 2014 and saying it was a GREAT evening keeps short to what we lived that night. Dan and Henry are both wonderful hosts and dinner was delicious. Dan takes his time to explain each course to us as well as the accompanying wine. We were lucky enough to have a table full... More

My traveling amigo and I chose Casa Salt Shaker on our most recent visit to Buenos Aires, a city I've visited five times during the 2000s. We're mighty glad that we were able to partake in this unique experience, for it was our very first time in doing such. The hosts, fellow diners [eight folks from various parts of our... More

Dan hosts a fun and interesting evening at his home. I went there for a unique experience and it was exactly that - people from all around the world, good food, good service. Dan delivers an experience as sold on his site - good sized portions, taster wines and a relaxed environment. He was good at joing the conversation but... More

The company was great, the hosts quite informative about the history and secrets of BA, and the food was always interesting even when it didn't quite come together perfectly. A very nice way for tourists to spend an evening in BA.

Dan and Henry were very welcoming and the meal was good. Great personal experience, everyone is seated at a communal table with about 10 guests total. Guests arrive a little before dinner starts and chat over a drink. It is great to meet others and share the dining experience together. The meal was well above average (especially the passion fruit... More

I love eating out as much as the next person, but on a 2 week trip across Argentina I also wanted to look for ways to change things up now and then. Enter Casa Saltshaker. I read their website carefully and scrolled through the reviews, so I felt informed enough to try to make a reservation. We had 2 gluten... More

this experience of attending my first closed door restaurant was truly wonderful. As a person who was travelling alone I soon found myself making friends with fellow diners. Dan likes to make sure that everyone is having a good time and seems to thoroughly enjoy the interaction of his guests. The standard of food is top notch. I would say... More

My husband and I had a great experience at Casa SaltShaker our first night in BA. The food and wine were good and our conversations with other guests were fun and interesting.
