We wandered into this place when taking a walk around Puerto Madero on a Tuesday night - what a find! Fantastic food: they do a 7 course tasting menu but also have a 3 course option. I have food intolerances and my waiter was AMAZING. He knew instantly what would be safe for me to eat and ensured that all... More

Overlooking the river in Puerto Madero this is an elegant, first class restaurant with smooth service. We had the 3 course menu and it was all carefully prepared and attractively presented. The sweetbreads were outstanding and the wine list varied and satisfying.

A very nice restaurant in Puerto Madero. Chic ambience, superb service, excellent food. Great wine variery and the best of all: The bread. Not just the typical bread you have at every place you go. Once you sit down a server will come with a tray of bread selections which are warm for you to choose, how many you would... More

We went with friends on Valentine's Day and enjoyed everything about the place, except for one thing. Food, service and atmosphere were exceptional. We sat near the window and had a great view of the river. The city lights were lovely. Our one and only gripe was that when we came out of the restaurant on a Friday night, we... More

Had dinner on a Sunday with family & friends. We hadn't planned to go there, although I had eaten at the restaurant a few years ago and had a good experience, we were looking for a new place but ended up there, and SO glad we did! They have changed things up since my last visit. You can only have... More

Ever since they remodeled I can't take my eyes off the open kitchen view. Only order the tasting menu and let the pros pair up the wines. It's nationally inspired cuisine with a touch of "molecular" style. Dessert cheese cart rocks!

I'm lucky enough to have visited Chila on two separate occasions. Both times the food was impeccable. The flavors were inventive and fused in a way that you wouldn't believe. The staff was extremely attentive. The actual location itself is also beautiful, right on the water in Puerto Madero. You can see the passion Chef Soledad has for her food.

My wife and I had a beautiful dinner in this port side setting. The food is presented in very imaginative and nontraditional methods. For example, oysters were not served in the shell. In contrast, they were served in a seaweed broth that was prepared at our tableside. We had the three-course meal and the portion sizes were significant, so much... More

Starting by the staff: great people, who know their business. The waiters were happy to explain the dishes and the tasting menu. The food was exquisite! The menu offered way more than one option for each course (first /second /dessert). To complete the experience, the view of Puerto Madero was amazing. It was pricy, but definitely worth it. I not...
