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.

Dining in Buenos Aires is generally not disappointing, but also rarely surprising. That is where Tarquino comes in! The tasting menu offers 7 dishes, all with a little extra twist. I especially enjoyed the pizza (served in a cocktail glass!) and the excellent pairing of Argentine wines to the courses. Being from Europe, I expected each dish to be a... More

The recent critics are dumb. From Atlanta, we know meat. This is absolutely awesome, food service, execution impeccable.

I could go on and on about how terrible our experience was but I'll try to be succinct. We started the meal with biting into an olive pit in the bread and almost breaking a tooth. After that, the appetizer wasn't too bad, but nothing special. For the mains, both myself and my boyfriend had inedible food. He had the... More

Dear Sir, Thank your for sharing your comments. I am sorry to learn today about the pin in the bread. All breads and pastry are homemade, and we are extremely careful. It would have been better to learn this at the moment so we could´ve fix it. Tarquino is a fine dining restaurant, with a very sophisticated concept. Recognized by... More

We did the tasting menu and wished we hadn't. It was a shame to have such a terrible experience in a city with so many great options! First, we were told this was a 7-course tasting menu, but it was actually 6. We felt deeply mislead and it ruined the experience for us. Second, two of the courses were utterly... More

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.
