Description: Adentro Dinner Club is a closed door restaurant run by an American and an Argentine out of our home. While Gabriel has an executive chef degree from Gato Dumas culinary school, his specialty is Argentine asado- the most representative and beloved tradition in the country. The setting is intimate (8 diners plus the 2 hosts share the dining room table) and you are meant to feel at home- diners can walk through the kitchen to have a drink on the patio or terrace and watch the master at work. Everything is home-made: from the country bread to the chimichurri sauce to the passion fruit liquor served with champagne. Food is served family style- take as much or as little as you like of the empanadas, salads, ribs, chorizo, steak, corn on the cob, portobellos, grilled prawns etc. We love having guests in our home and Gabriel lets anyone who likes help prepare some of the meal and freely shares his recipes. If you are looking for a truly authentic asado and the feeling of being included as an honored guest in someone's home, we look forward to sharing an evening with you in Adentro Dinner Club.

I owe Kelly an apology as I'd intended to write this review immediately following our visit in November but neglected to do so. The food was great and the experience was even better. Gabriel is an excellent chef and Kelly is a wonderful host. The highlight of the meal was being in such an intimate setting with such a small... More

What a great night! A former coworker from Seattle recommended this place to me and I am so happy he did. Kelly and Gabriel fit us in even though they were already full for the night. They made us and everyone else instantly feel as though we were amongst friends. And then there was the food...wow. Absolutely delicious. I had... More

Everything about this dining experience was wonderful. The food is relatively simple, but cooked perfectly. What really makes this meal special though are the hosts. It truly felt like going to a friend's house for a dinner party, and within the first 20 minutes you feel at home -- they even invited the guests to wash up and help toss... More

Adentro was a great experience and what a puerta cerrada should be like. Kelly and Gabriel are amazing. She makes you at ease right away and he is the expert chef we all want at our dinner parties. From the passion fruit cocktail, to the empanadas, the best salad ever, the perfectly seasoned shrimp, the huge amounts of steak served,... More

We were so excited to have made a reservation a week before leaving for Buenos Aires for this highly rated experience. Unfortunately, we could not access our e-mail in our hotel, therefore did not receive the notice that dinner was cancelled. We took a taxi to the address but on arrival, there was a note pinned to the door saying... More

Hi, We're so sorry that out of all the reservations it was yours that we had to cancel- we know how difficult it is to plan events while on vacation and it must have been a terrible surprise to find out at the last minute. Just to give some context- we had had several people cancel or simply not show... More

Delicious food. Overall, the entire dinner was great - from the appetizers to dessert. Certainly the best empanada I have ever had (and I have sampled many in BA). Nothing disappointed at all. Great way to enjoy the asado experience in someone's home here in BA. Hosts were very welcoming, gracious and personable. It was great to have the hosts... More

Sometimes a concept just works. Your Adentro dining experience might not be the fanciest, most pretentious meal you will ever have in your life but all the elements offered by this young, creative partnership come together to create an evening of food and fun you will never forget. It doesn't matter how old you are, if you like sampling regional... More

The restaurant is the perfect combination of delicious unpretentious food, eclectic setting and gracious hosts who make everything look effortless. Everything is generously served family style and ingredients are top notch. I've tried many of the top parrillas and Gabriel's cooking rivals, perhaps exceeds, some of the best. I hope to return to try their seafood night and spend another... More

Simple and relaxed meal between friends. This is the proposition and it is delivered with mastery. You really fell among friends and Kelly and Gabriel make sure you have a great experience.

After hearing about closed door restaurants in BA, I did some online research while planning our Argentina vacation and discovered Adentro Dinner Club. After seeing the many glowing reviews on Tripadvisor and checking out the website, I shared the information with my wife, and we both loved the concept (an intimate Argentinian asado dinner in the home of an Argentine-American...
