Chila is great; fusion of flavors is very well coordinated. I went from the sea to the Patagonia in a table, always followed by excellent wine. Service is awesome, thanks chef!!!

Worth to go! A place to return. The 3 stage menu with DV Catena wines was a great choice. The octopus and the dulce de leche souffle.... the highlights

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.

Great food and suburb service. The recommendations from the staff were good and therefore we have a great diner, which even impressed our local guest from Buenos Aires. As main people already mentioned take the Soufle as desert, fantastic!

Flawless from start to finish in every phase. Ambiance, views, service but most of all the innovative and delicious food. Best dining experience in our 2 weeks in Argentina, even exceeded our great dinner at I Latina, which is quite an accomplishment. The calamari and the soufflé were our favorites from an extraordinary evening. The price was quite reasonable for... More

The food is modern, molecular and tasty. It is cutting edge culinary but not so much that it is weird. Eat the octopus, tastes like steak -- seriously. Loved it.

We went here for our last night in BA. Starting with the walk past the trophy cabinet that lined the long hallway to the restaurant we felt bad as they were setting the expectation for the night very high. Thankfully they did not disappoint. The cocktails were scrumptious, staff well informed and relaxed, and the food delicious. We opted for... More

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.
