Ate here on our final night after a week of Argentinian conspicuous consumption. Were not disappointed. A classy dining room with beautiful water views. Service of the highest standard with waiters near- fluent in English. Being foodies, we went the whole hog and had the degustation with wines. Very generous pours - virtually 5 full glasses. Wines themselves were excellent... More

We ate at Chila as a family of 4 plus a 2-year old toddler and I must say we felt at home and enjoyed our dinner despite being far from "fine-diner" stereotype. Two people ordered 7 course and the other two 3, all with wine pairings. We had a bad surprise when I realised that the prices on the menu... More

This stylish restaurant reflects well the sense of innovation of its young chef, the Argentinian Soledad Nardelli. Together with the lovely view of the night lights around the river, we particularly enjoyed the rabbit potpourri, the duck maigret, and the astonishing selection of chocolates we asked for dessert, with different flavors and consistences. I think now the menu is different... More

Number 19 in the Latin American San Pellegrino awards and with a view out over the water and the modern side of the city. The food was very good - homemade and unusual breads, a lovely amuse bouche, Mi cuit sea trout and mouthwatering dry aged beef. And the aperitifs and Malbec were also good value. Would have preferred to... More

A most elegant, exquisite dining. Superb multilingual service. From the minute we walked in, the focus was on us. Unobtrusive and helpful. As a vegetarian, I was offered choices and carefully explained what I was eating. I would go back there on business or with friends and .visitors. LOVED it.

We were erroneously charged for 5 bottles of wine instead of just 5 glasses. An excess of 30% or 855 Ar$. After our complaint it was fixed, but the the whole situation left us feeling suspicious and uncomfortable. The food pretends to be "haute-cuisine" but it really isn't. You can find much better quality and value at Tarquino or Tegui.... More

My girlfriend is a travel writer so we travel a lot and are always on the lookout for great restaurants. For me, Chila is one of the best I've had in the world. Great attention to detail, all the little things that create dining luxury and a creative menu that makes each course a new taste experience. That's special. Three... More

Had to impress a Dutch friend visiting BA, and took him to Chila. From the moment you sit down the experience changes the way you look at having dinner out. The service is ultra knowledgeable and tries hard at understanding what you like. We tried 3 course meal (3 pasos) recommended by a very well known chef. We went from... More
