One of the most talked about dining experiences in Palermo is Tegui. We set out to find it, which isn’t as simple as you might think! The door to the restaurant is so unassuming, you will probably walk right past it as we did. A simple metal door set in a stencilled graffiti covered wall marks the entrance; the name... More

Came here on the recommendation from local friends. We ordered the full 8 course tasting menu and wine pairing as our splurge on our trip. While each course was interesting, I felt some were better than others. I'm pretty adventurous and love eating locally wherever I travel, and I really wanted to be blown away. But I felt some of...

We went here based on the restaurants recent inclusion as the 'best' restaurant in Argentina and we always go somewhere new when we visit BA. We loved: the low key entrance, the decor and ambience, the service, the presentation of the dishes. We weren't so keen on: the food itself! Starters were excellent, main courses were good to ok, desserts... More

Tegui was highly recommended by friends. Amazing 8-course dinner! Wonderful and tastefull dishes. The service was the crown jewel! The sommelier who served us whine ( a French blonde girl) was really nice, thoughtful and extremely polite! Our waiter was also very kind and responsive!! Best restaurant in BsAs by far!! Price incredibly fair for what is served! Can't wait... More

We had the tasting menu paired with wine and for what we spent (~$300 USD for three people) we expected a more cohesive meal. This kind of food obviously hits you on an intellectual level rather than satisfying your hunger pangs, but I couldn't get past the cold elements on my plate. From the shaved cheese on the classic beet+goat... More

Really cool atmosphere and slick interior design that draws attention to the open kitchen. My group ate on the patio with a cozy canopy of banana trees. Dress code - due to circumstances, I showed up wearing shorts (nice dress shorts and a long-sleeve dress shirt, but shorts nonetheless). Many places in BA wouldn't mind, but Tegui did...hence sitting on... More

Creativity, innovative..but w/the approx. 10 person culinary team, it should have been...8 courses & 6 wines tasting menu...Went to HG restaurant in Fierro Hotel for lunch w/6 courses & 4 wines w/only 2 people in kitchen, an notch above Tegui w/flavors & especially the desserts...You need to experience both & be the judge yourself...

This was one of best meals we ate in Argentina! The food was delicious and the atmosphere great. Try the fresh mozzarella appetizer, so good. Definitely a great choice for a nice evening out.

After spending 8 days in Buenos Aires and enjoying several great meals, this restaurant was head and shoulders above the rest of the crowd. The contemporary decor was warm and inviting. I especially liked the metal steer skull mounted above the open kitchen. The service was excellent and everyone spoke impeccable English as we all spoke just enough Spanish to... More
