I discovered this place thanks to an article on the UK paper “The Guardian”: strictly speaking the article was not a review of the restaurant, but no secret was made that this is an address not to miss in Buenos Aires. I duly noted it and, funnily enough, it was precisely my interest for the restaurant that prompted me to... More

We had the summer tasting menu on our last day in Argentina. One of the best meals ever, with wine pairing . Each course was perfect . Highlights were squash foam starter, veal tongue, rice with baby Aquidneck, the best lamb I have ever tasted. Nothing was less than outstanding. If Argentina had Michelin stars, this would be a 3.

We discovered a great chef! A lot of dedication with every dish. We went through the 7 steps menu and it was really amazing. But you should be prepared to eat really different kind of things such as neat's tongue (I loved it). The service is also very helpful.

I ate here in July 2013 for lunch and also in December 2013 for dinner. Both experiences were good. I had the three course lunch and the tasting dinner menu. In my opinion the dinner is better than the lunch. All the food was beautifully presented, the waiter who spoke good English, explained what the food was. We went quite... More

The parade of small tasting menu dishes for Sunday brunch (a happening thing in this Palermo Hollywood place) included Asian snacks, empanaditas, local trout, mini-hamburgers and veggie shots as well as fresh squeezed juice, a special cocktail and coffee. Dinner is a languorous affair of multi-tasting dishes - all delightful bites of flavour to savour. But don't expect fast service.

We had the tasting menu with wine pairing. The food was lovely and the pairings were great. As with most tasting menus, some courses were more memorable than others. The foam courgette (which I admit, doesn't sound as divine as it was) stood out for me. The service was very good without being too precious. The wait staff were very... More

We came from another hotel to try their hotel restaurant of the same name. We didn't leave disappointed per se, but we did feel like perhaps Sunday night is not the night to come here. It is a small space and the lights were too bright and the music too quiet...which only exemplified the fact there weren't many other people... More

My wife and I enjoyed one of the best brunches we have ever had at this restaurant. The numerous dishes were very well prepared and served in tapas-sized portions. The menu on the day we were there (March 9, 2014) included: poached egg on a bed of baba ganoush; rabbit pate with kumquat marmalade; potato tortilla (like a tortilla espanola)... More

Our first night in BA kicked off with dinner here, which was great fun! The tasting menu was great and the staff very helpful. The sommelier was great and informative. You cannot argue with the price either - for 7 course and paired wine for under £100 - it's brilliant!
