A creative culinary experience. It takes Argentinian cuisine to a level where it is not only an expression of its essence, but gives it a modern interpretation. The service is professional, knowledgeable, attentive and discreet.

Actually it deserves a 4 point ++ as this is one of the best meals I had in South America, and I have been to a few of the best. Very elegant and simple in the decor, but very modernist too. The staff is just great both in training and attitude and in looks. And the food is apparently simple... More

Agree with another reviewer who thought this place was trendy without much substance. We had requested a 7:30PM reservation thru the hotel concierge but were told that only 9:30 seating was available. So, off we went. Our taxi driver had trouble finding this graffiti-front restaurant. Undoubtedly, the space is gorgeous and furnished to be trendy. Many tables were not yet... More

Spectacular presentation, food and service. We had the three course prix fixe, one partridge and one lamb entree. Would not hesitate to recommend to friends and colleagues. Pricey by BA standards, of course, but pay in $AR and it is a relative bargain for an top tier restaurant as deserving of its ratings as any in other world capitals.

A nice restaurant and a welcome change from the usual meat places in BA. The restaurant is located in Palermo at the other side of the railway track (many nice bars) and is very trendy, excellent service and delicious food. We started with the smoked sweetbread (calf's neck) which was yummy and the fresh oysters (small but tasty). For mains... More

Amazing restaurant! The food is delicious, and resonably priced if compared to good restaurants in Brazil or even in the USA. You may choose the tatsing menu (with something like 8 mini portions) or a menu with appetizer, entrée and dessert. I choosed the second option and it was a very good idea. The cuisine is international but with an... More

Interesting, varied menu, slightly pricey but worth it. Excellent bilingual staff, plenty of them. Great selection of wines. Only drawback: very noisy and difficult to talk without raising your voice. Highly recommendable.

We had the tasting menu with paired wine and it was excellent. Loved the crispy boudin, loved the lamb, the desserts, wines were all local and excellent, service impeccable. We had a reservation at 10:30 arrived at 10:45 and were sited at 11. Our dinner was a sensational 2 1/2 hour experience in both taste and texture, It's an expensive... More
