A global entry in the foodie space!

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

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
