Make sure to try the provolone pizza appetizer. A deconstructed masterpiece! Also the ribeye, an Argentinian staple, was delicious. The restaurant is small and cozy, service was incredible. If you have time, make sure to order the "head to tail" menu. A sampling of the best beef has to offer

Oh Tarquino, where to begin? The food was so good that my husband and I can't stop talking about it. The restaurant itself is lovely, and the service is incredible. And the FOOD! We started with an appetizer of potato puree, prosciutto, and deep fried egg yolk. The egg really put it over the top. For entrees, I had raviolis... More

Ate here last night and me and my wife were very impressed. The staff are outstanding, the cocktails mixed by a master, the presentation of the bar and the dining area oozes quality, and the food was top notch. The sommelier took plenty of time to walk us through the various Malbec regions and helped us pick exactly what we... More

The best A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to enjoy a night at, what in my opinion, is one of the best restaurants in BA. Tarquino, located at the Hub Hotel is not just an incredibly beautiful restaurant full of details (check out the chairs) but also the service and food are from another world. It is a... More

We visited this restaurant whilst we were staying at the Hub Porteno Hotel. The food quality is superb, and the ambience is great. My husband thought that his steak was one of the best he had during our trip (and we had just come from mendoza...!) The "Pizza Starter" is worth going for!

Located in the Hub Porteno small boutique hotel in the Recoleta district, this is the ultimate BA restaurant for foodies. The chef, formerly of El Bulli creates innovative, beautifully prepared dishes with unique blends of ingredients. Outstanding meal, service and atmosphere in an intimate setting, this place should not be missed on your visit to BA.

We tried Tarquino after hearing about it from some friends of friends. As usual, we arrived much earlier than the typical Buenos Aires eating hour (arrived at 8:30 PM). The service was spectacular from the moment we entered. The entrance was a little bland on the outside. It felt as if we were walking into an office complex. The pizza... More

We arrived a little early because the walk was shorter than we expected from our hotel. There was another table seated and we were ushered right to our table. We were brought menus and were deciding over the tasting menu with wine, the full pig meal, or just to order a la carte. The server came over and asked if... More

The chef's credentials and glowing reviews made me choose this restaurant for our final meal in Buenos Aires. We were made feel welcome the moment we arrived. Timid about the cow sequence (whilst it is good not to waste any animal parts, offal doesn't generally excite me) and unsure about the degustation menu (I would rather choose what I will... More
