This is a beautiful restaurant, with a great atmosphere, the food is good but not as good to justify the high cost. Around $50 per person en Argentina is a lot of money, and you can do it only if you want to be in a beautiful place

I live in London and we visited Tarquino in December of 2013. It was an eventful night with poor service. After arguing with the Manager over the timing of our dinner (I wanted to drink a couple of glasses of my Champagne bottle with my wife) we returned one of the overly-salted dishes. Again arguing with the waiter that the... More

We arrived around 8:45pm and were the only people at the restaurant with 4 waiters. They were staring at us the whole time, which made it very awkward for us. The food is interesting and unique, however, say away from the ravioli with rabbit - they are not good. The pasta is too thick and the sauce is not good.... More

This was a great experience. I had finally gotten tired of the usual BA grilled meat.Tarquino was definitely something different. I liked that it was not too modern gastro - just enough to be interesting. I loved the provolone pizza - a foamy delicious fun pizza in a martini glass. I debated between the beef cheeks and the fish and... More

Tarquino is really pretty, food is tasty but the service is only alright. The reason for the 3star rating is because the drinks were AWFUL! We ordered 2 Mojitos and it took 30 minutes for the first one to come... And it was a gin and tonic! (We returned it) Then we waited another 15 mins for our Mojitos that... More

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
