Excellent ambiance, this small restaurant in Palermo will surprise you with its good food and wines! Bread is served on hot stones! very creative. We went for #BAFoodWeek with an excellent menu for the occasion.

Argentine/international cuisine, inventive and very well presented, wines excellent (even the house red), attentive service even though restaurant was busy. Bill came to about 20% of what we would happily pay for a similar meal in London. It was worth visiting Buenos Aires just for the meal (we passed through on our way to Patagonia).

Four of us had dinner here on the recommendation of new friends from BA. We ordered four starters and four mains (nearly half of the menu). We could have stopped with the starters. The portions are ample. The menu is well constructed and the meals are visually pleasing, but in several cases the kitchen failed to execute with well prepared... More

We went for New year's eve....we booked through "restorando" which is like open menu. There was a set tasting menu for the evening, and we went for it, including the wine pairings. It was all excellent. Walking distance to our apartment and with very charming and attentive staff. Lovely alternative to some of the touristier spots.

Inspite of the mixed reviews we decided to go and have dinner anyway. I must say it was everything but mediocre. The food was excellent, fresh, good portions. We had an entree, a main course, coffee and a glass of wine for about €60, which is I think not at all overpriced. The waitresses are very friendly and extremely helpful.... More

Frankly speaking, we were looking for a different restaurant that night, but it was closed, so we went to Demuru, where the staff was really friendly and spoke very good English (really rare in Buenos Aires!). The only dippsapointment was the tasting menu - they don't serve it unless everyone at the table orders it. Apart from this one thing,... More

We had walked by this place several times in our strolls around Palermo and noticed its delightful ambiance and the always full house. Figuring that was a good sign we ventured in for dinner tonight and were not disappointed. This is a "local" joint and it has a fairly limited menu and a few specials. We enjoyed everything from the... More

I have had such good meals in BA that this was a real let down. The place was lacking in ambience and the food was mediocre. It was also very expensive. I found the staff less than effusive. Overall the most disappointing meal I've had in BA.

This restaurant belongs to a known chef in Argentina, part of a TV show as well. I was expecting a lot, as my partner took me there as a b'day present. The food did not make it for me, regular flavors, my main dish had to be sent out to be re-heated. Desserts just ok. For the price we paid,... More

We came upon this restaurant by chance........which was extremely lucky given the sheer number of options in BA. It has lovely ambience, proper service, plus the menu was really interesting and the quality of the food was fantastic. Overall we had a fantastic experience..........which was so good that we returned again 2 weeks later at the end of our trip.... More
