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. This is a great way to experience a meal in someone's home if you aren't lucky enough to know locals. If anyone is on the fence, Dan does... More

This closed-door restaurant was great. From the beginning, when we made a reservation, we made it clear one of our party was gluten-free. The entire meal made for us was then gluten-free and she got a special bread and dessert. It was a great change of pace to dine with strangers and hear their stories. Great option for those traveling... More

We discovered Casa Saltshaker when researching vegetarian options in Buenos Aires. Our host and chef, Dan, was wonderfully accommodating to the meatless request and throughout the five course meal we ate as well as the other guests that evening, with substitutions for meat and fish that were flavorful and inventive. The wine pairings throughout the meal were thoughtful and complemented... More

Definitely exactly what I was looking for in a puerta cerrada. We all shared a table, got a menu and were served a five-course meal with wine pairings - exactly what I wanted! Not many places have a shared table, and I thought this was the best touch. I also enjoyed Dan and Henry's beautiful home - the pictures don't... More

During a business trip to Buenos Aires my partner wanted to try a closed door restaurant and after searching Trip Advisor he came up Casa Saltshaker. I perused some of the reviews and I fault myself for not reading them more carefully because I think the true story comes out not by some by the reviews but more by the... More

Obviously we're disappointed that you didn't enjoy yourself with us, and we're sorry that we didn't live up to your expectations, whatever they were. At the same time, while everything is personal perception, just as obviously we, and the vast majority of people who dine here, have a different experience. But, it is personal, and it's not for everyone -... More

Make sure you understand what a puerto cerada experience is, then go for it and totally enjoy it! Meet new and interesting people with whom you are sure to share many common interests; eat great food (5 courses worth), paired with great wine; and enjoy Dan's conversation, knowledge and humor along with Henry's warm hospitality. GO and expect a festive... More

Love underground dining experience or "closed door" how it's called in other countries. Excellent choice on dining companions - and everyone was very engaged in a conversation. Felt as a part of a salon. Dan, the owner and the chef, took a great effort to prepare the meals. And trust me the kitchen he has to work in - is... More

Well... this was my 9th trip to Buenos aires in 10 years my 3rd experience dining at Casa Saltshaker. I travel with my husband and this is one of our favorite experiences in the city. 10 of us sat around the very comfortable table and our dining companions included 4 Australians, 2 from the Normandy Coast of France and two...
