My second visit... and I would go for a third!

This was my second trip to Casa Saltshaker and it was a great experience the second time around as well. The food was excellent. There is so much detail and thought that goes into every dish. The company was fantastic as well. You are seated at one table in the chef's home. Great conversation... read more

My husband and I had read about the "puerta cerrada" dining experience and thought we would give it a try. We were really really happy we did. We were welcomed into a very inviting atmosphere by our hosts, Dan and Henry, and immediately given a wonderful homemade cocktail to start. We met each of the other guests as they arrived... More

The dinner was lovely, and very filling. Dan and Henry are fantastic hosts, and they made us feel very welcome! The food was great, in fact, there was so much of it I couldn't finish all of the courses (yet just when I thought that I couldn't possibly take one more bite, Dan produced that cheesecake that was to die...

What could be better - the comfortable ambiance of a friend's home and the food of a fine restaurant. Add to that an intimate table of 10 interesting people and it is a perfect evening. Hosts Dan and Henry could not be more welcoming. We had decided to walk from Palermo and were the last people to arrive, but that... More

If you are considering visiting a closed restaurant, I highly recommend SaltShaker. Dan and Henry welcome you into their and serve you an excellent and innovative five course meal. Although Buenos Aires offers a number of closed restaurants, there's only one other in Buenos Aires that provides a communal table for its guest. This one aspect makes SaltShaker an excellent...

Casa Salt-Shaker. Wonderful meal with a great group of folks. Roomy, lively table for ten. Five courses, paired with wines. Sensible portions and pours. The highlights were a ceviche, a watermelon gazpacho, and a remarkable ojo de bife. Dan discusses each course and is an excellent but not hovering host. I have to thank him for his patience. Please be... More

Before coming to Buenos Aires, I had already heard about Casa SaltShaker. For 5 years. My brother and his wife dined there while visiting B.A. and haven't stopped talking about it since. So when my friend and I planned a trip to B.A., this was at the top of my list. And we are both so so so glad we... More

It was a truly wonderful experience. No question we would go back if we ever there again. The Chef is amazing in his cooking, presentation and preparing the dishes. We had a group of 10 from all over and it was a delightful evening. The wine was perfect as was everything that evening.

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
