First and best closed door experience!

Amazing food, great company and just an overall fantastic experience! Met so many great people and tasted fantastic food and wine pairings! The host is gracious and creative - made a special vegetarian menu just for me. A memorable experience in Buenos Aires!

While in Buenos Aires my husband and I saw a blurb about closed door restaurants in our guide book and decided that we wanted to check it out--we were able to get a reservation for the last night of our trip on Saturday, January 3rd and I'm so glad we did. I was a little nervous at first because well...you... More

When you are looking for an authentic closed door dinner place in BsAs, Casa Saltshaker is the place to go to - with around eight people per night it gives you the cosy intimate atmosphere that I had read about. Expect to be involved into dinner conversations with your fellow guests and the hosts Dan and Henry. Enjoy the creative,... More

We booked after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, and my only regret is that we didn't go twice while we were in BA. I found the food to be creative and delicious, with subtle flavors that lingered. My favorites were the salad and cold beet soup, but all the courses were very good. Part of the fun is sitting...

We were holidaying in Buenos Aires over new year period and were concerned that not a lot would be open so booked ahead purely on trip advisor recommendations and were not disappointed. We had a wonderful 6 course meal with matching wines. Our hosts, Dan and Henry were delightful and we shared an amazing meal with other similar minded globe... More

Lovely 5 course menu. Dan and Henry were excellent and very professional hosts! Fun, relaxed environment. Met many interesting people! There was a Greek couple who had flown in from China; a British guy and his Indo-American wife from Brooklyn; a Spanish couple (the woman had apparently ran a marathon in 7 continents), and a woman I bumped into who...

Our family of 5 was traveling in BA and we thought trying a puerto cerrado would be a unique experience. It was! Especially since we found the national cuisine of Argentina very boring after several days. There were some highlights food-wise on our 2+ week trip - eating at the warm and lovely home of Dan and Henry was certainly... More

What a wonderful concept....attending a dinner party, in someone's home, while visiting a foreign city! First, let me say that the hosts (Dan - also the Chef, and Henry) were delightful. And courageous! Would you welcome strangers into your home every evening for dinner? And oh what a dinner! This is not typical Argentine cuisine, so don't expect an asado... More

My wife and I were traveling in the South Pacific and decided to spend xmas in BA. Since xmas eve is usually a tough time to book on the spot we looked ahead and found these private home restaurants.

We are fans of the pop-up restaurant movement, so we knew we had to try a "puerta cerrada" while visiting Buenos Aires. After seeing Casa SaltShaker mentioned in numerous online articles, I sent off an email hoping they'd have room for us on short notice. Dan emailed me back almost immediately, and we were in luck. Dan's apartment, where the... More
