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

If I believed in the negative reviews I wouldn't have gone there. Not salty at all (except the prices, but they are throuroughly advertised). Compared to the experiences we had at Aramburu and El Baqueano, I would say it was a slightly minor experience, since the other two cater for the "roots" of the argentinian cuisine and Tarquino is a...

It was a really creative, excellent, multi-course meal. It is a small restaurant with a small, friendly staff. We sort of overwhelmed it with our group of 16. Breakfast for adjacent Hub Porteno Hotel was served there too and it was diverse and very tasty.

Delicious and creative food, romantic setting conveniently located in our boutique 10-suite hotel Hub Porteno. Crispy, delicate suckling pig, thorough and excellent wine list of Argentinian vineyards, an adjacent cozy bar for a pre- or post- dinner drinks prepared by a talented mixologist. We think it deserves a much higher Trip Advisor ranking.

I agree with a fellow reviewer when stated that this is probably one of the most expensive meals I've paid for in Buenos Aires, and it is not worth it at all! The place, a remodeled "Petit Hotel" has a combination of styles that is not appealing, especially since I knew the place from before, when it hosted a different... More

This was probably the worst and most expensive meal we had in Buenos Aires! I found the restaurant on some other reviews and prior to arriving in BA I asked the concierge to book it. Just before leaving the hotel to jump in a cab to go there I decided to check Tripadvisor and should have realised then that I... More

As you get closer to the address, look for a security guy searching for lost foodies with a reservation for Tarquino...the place doesn't have a sign and it sits within an apartment building in the traditional neighborhood of Recoleta. Food is taken from fantasy books and fairy tales, and in our case we had it with a trio of different... More
