Argentinian food, fine dining style

Chila is in the new Puerta Madero district of BA, a really smart restaurant: decor is very 'corporate' and sleek - you could be in any major city in the world, except that the menu with its Patagonian lamb and mate ice-cream (hideous palate cleanser but hey, the locals love it so who am I to judge... read more

Amazing service, presentation, the wine, the food, absolutely fantastic. French Laundry, Bouchon, Jules Verne and many other restaurants should look at this gem in Buenos Aires and take notes...Do not miss the soufflé de dulce de leche....marvelous....

Deeply impressed with the flavorful food, tranquille ambience and attentive service while dining at Chila with my husband the first night of our visit in BA. The manager warmly welcomed us and led us to a table by the window with a nice view overlooking the river. All dishes were plated artfully and served in appropriate pace. The ingredients were...

This restaurant came highly recommended by friends. We had a river view table. The service was impeccable. We enjoyed some wonderful wine, delicious steak and a dulce de leche soufflé that was perfect.

Perfection at its best for the dining experience. From the welcome to the farewell over the detail oriented service and the perfect God this meal was definitely one of the best meal I have ever had in my life. Sitting at the window side could oversee the beautiful river view. I would not hesitate to go back again if I... More

I went to Chila to have dinner about two months ago. The place is very stylish and "cool". Perfect for a special occasion, or if you intend to impress somebody. Anything you ask from the menu will be simply GREAT. There are no bad choices here and you will definitely be surprised when you taste the food. I found myself... More

Usually I am not too fond of "new style" cuisine restaurants, simply because there are so many different tastes in one dish and so many different dishes, that at the end of the meal i only remember half of what i have eaten and even less how all of the dishes tasted - in Chila, this was not the case!...
