Our food was good, service was good, restaurant is pleasant. One word of caution --- portions are HUGE. This is not a bad thing, just something to be aware of. Order one dish for two people. We felt badly about not realizing this and ended up wasting a lot of food. This is perhaps something the wait staff should mention... More

Good Atmosphere and good service, I ordered a chorizo steak and it was hard and with no taste, good place for a couple of drinks and appetizer , maybe it wasn't my night but the food didn't taste good. Avoid.

Good value, elegant surroundings, and excellent service. Try the daily lunch specials for extra value. This restaurant specializes in traditional dishes from Spain.

At 8pm on Sunday the restaurant was empty however, it was full the night before. The Menu del Dia was excellent and we had a good bottle of wine for around 5 Euros. Overall, a good evening.

We had a really good Bife de Chorizo here. They have Asturian food here, but we did fine on the Argentine steak. As for service being slow, well it is Buenos Aires. BTW, the place is quite beautiful as are many restaurants in BsAs.

Based on Lonely planet review we went there for lunch. But we experienced quite bad service and very very bad food. The menu looks fine and they offer also daily menu but it is not worth the visit. The emptiness of the place should have warned us. I would highly recommend to avoid this place.

The restaurant looked inviting and traditional from the street but it provided a bitterly disappointing experience. Having ordered sangria, it took just over thirty-five minutes and numerous reminders before our surly and overworked waitress produced it, poor as it was; our paella was a mixture of tasteless pre-cooked rice on which the other ingredients were arranged... it was pretty ghastly...

This is a nice restaurant. Waiters are very nice and have a great service attitude. What they do not tell you is that every requirement generates a cost. So if you ask for a particular option they charged you in a criteria that they only know. Despite that, is a good place for taking a break and pampering yourself. Is... More

Unique ambiance (if a bit bright), enormous menu, excellent service. Initially tried it as we arrived late into Buenos Aires from Montevideo and it was just down the street from our hotel - ended up coming back a couple times over the next week. The steak was the best I had in Argentina. The wine and dessert selection could be... More
