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

Chila is really an amazing restaurant with a nice & elegant atmosphere. The waiters are very kind and speak fluent English. The location in Puerto Madero is also very good. So after a perfect dinner at Chila, it's easy and safe to walk a bit around the area.

Great restaurant in puerto madero. Fusion latin american french cuisine. We chose a 3 course menu and wine by the glass. Excellent food and wine and attentive service.

This restaurant had amazing food! We chose the 7 course option without the wine pairing (and ordered our own bottle) which ended up being great. The restaurant took note that we don't speak fluent Spanish and made sure to always come over and speak in English as we would be most comfortable that way. They also explained each course and...

Chila is amazing!!! It truly didn't disappoint at all and I had extremely high expectations due to the reviews I had read!! My partner and I opted for the three course meal (there is only a seven course or three course menu to chose - you can not just order a main meal - so really you are paying $800... More

We read a lot about Chila, so our expectations were high. We were not disappointed. We liked the atmosphere, it's a classy place with subdued light and modern design. The staff were friendly and professional, although the service is not as refined as in comparable restaurants. For example, the wine pairing was served very fast, so at some point we... More

Buenos Aires... city of pasta, steak and wine. But Chila, what guts to fight the current with finely plated artistic dishes of care and quality! We opted for the 8 dishes and one wine paring. The wait staff was caring, personal and knowledgeable. It was an international symphony of taste and colors. And by the way, though pricy as compared... More

Perfect. Presentation. We went for New Years eve dinner and were not disappointed! A little bit pricey at 250 USD per person, but a terrific experience nonetheless. If you're very hungry you probably won't like Chila since the portions are small. Chila is a must if you are a foodie!!!
