It's been my tenth time in Tarquino over the last 4 years, and each time Dante Liporace - its Chef - keeps surprising me. We enjoyed a 9 course perfect dinner with my wife, celebrating life with a wonderful Cabernet Franc that the sommelier picked for us. I won't describe you each course, but if you have only one night... More

The restaurant is expensive and only offers tasting menu. Although elaborate, few of the dishes were tastefull. The time between courses was awfull. It was too fast and we couldn't enjoy calmly all the meal.

Able to go today for lunch, my expectation were high. I knew that it was on a nice location and had several awards. I had the oysters and pasta, not impressed at all. Only one option for dessert, just ice cream.

Thank you for expressing your opinion. The reason why you had only ice-cream for dessert is because you have chosen the mid-day promotional menu where, even though, you can choose between several starters and main courses, for dessert there is only ice-cream. Please notice that in our regular menu you can choose between a 5 or a 7 course tasting... More

Wonderful service. Menu is 3 pairings or 7 pairings; with selections that you might not ever see again. Go with a very "open" food mind. Choose carefully

We only had starters and mains - rather than the tasting menu - but what we had was delicious! Great wine list too and easy access for Recoleta and Centro hotels.

We enjoyed this meal...alot!! 7courses - all flavorful inventive plates with wine pairings - all argentine wines! This is NOT a tourist destination if you are seeking a typical steak/beef experience, but if you want interesting and satisfying, this is a great choice!

I loved the food, the wine and also the way they have you at a separated lobby to wait for a table. The ambiance is very charming and the light is perfect. Everybody looks good and the dinner is fantastic. I had a calamar carbonara spaghetti... amazing taste! A place to have a special and friendly dinner.

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
