Nice soft music and the lights made the ambient appealing for a cozy dinner for a couple. The wine menu presented a wide variety of argentine productions to match with the different plates offered in the main menu. The meals were great, with sophisticated combination of ingredients that assured a remarkable experience. A bit pricey (~90usd/person with wine) but well... More

This was certainly one of the best meals I have ever had, if not, the best. The dishes are very creative and very, very flavorful. It is expensive, but that is expected for a good fine dining restaurant. Again, the combinations of flavors and meats were amazing.

This restaurant is totally amazing. All of the food is fantastic. The views of the the river were great. We had the multi course menu and it was a great experience. Even though we do not drink wine, we found the restaurant to be very accommodating. The highlight of our meal was the "hake". It is a deep sea fish... More

We (2 people) did two different 3 course tasting menus, and thought it was delicious! The octopus and prawns were so fresh and flavorful, and the dulce de leche soufflé was incredible. The chef shared a creation with everyone before the meal for an appetizer, and that was amazing as well. We loved the delicacy of the food and the... More

Steaks were tough. Not up to par with American meats. Staff was friendly and service was fair. Language problems definitely.

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighborhood Profile
Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect combination of old and new. The river provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away. Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this neighborhood a unique destination in a city as busy as Buenos Aires. The restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the docks make it a prime spot for nights out and have come to symbolize this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
