5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2014 NEW

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

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
