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!...

Having had a superb meal at I Latina the reviews for Chila gave us high expectations , especially as so many reviewers said how expectations were met; for us they were not! We have learnt over the years to be wary of certain signs which quickly became apparent at Chila (1) Food served too quickly . We went for the... More

WOW! What can I say? Everything was spectacular! This meal was the best meal we had in BA and that's saying something because we had a lot of great meals! The ambiance is very chic and the service is top notch. We had the three course option: I chose the oysters from Patagonia, Black Hake Antartica and the Dulce de... More

Chila was terrific. I had one of the best meals I have had in a very long time here. You have a choice of fixe prix menus of three or seven courses. Everything was outstanding. I loved the prawns and scallops from Ushuaia, the lamb from Patagonia and the Dulce de Leche soufflé. Yum, Yum, Yum. I will definitely go... More

This restaurant has a prix fixe menu - a three course meal for 800 pesos or a seven course tasting menu for 1100, drinks not included. Although the location on the canal is delightful, you should really come for the food because the chef is an artiste. We ordered from the three course menu. We were greeted with a delightful...

Loved this restaurant. Has a premium location on the port, which sets the mood for the night. The food was fantastic and service was very good. Had to figure our own wine pairing strategy as they pair multi courses with big glasses of wine, so we shared a pour on each course to enhance the experience.

Started with a very friendly welcome. The waiters are very professional and friendly. The decor is modern with warm colours and comfortable. Very fresh ingredients and the fish was just amazing. I believe it was black Merluza from Antarctica. We loved it. Will come back if we ever return to B.A.

Tried this restaurant our first night in BA. Located in Puerto Madero, we had a great view of the river. The service was excellent, and we enjoyed all dishes. The dishes were sophisticated, presented beautifully and were delicious. Favorites were grilled octopus with aioli (white & blackened with ink) and suckling pig. I would look forward to enjoying meals here... More
