Excellent and interesting food

I Latina was fantastic. I generally don't enjoy restaurants that serve very small plates with lots of decoration, but I Latina was an exception. While the servings were indeed small, there were lots of them, and the pairings were nicely done. The atmosphere is really fun too. Highly recommended.

Everyone says that i Latina is one of the best restaurants in BA. They're right. It's a very different menu from the typical BA fare, because the owners prepare Columbian dishes. It's a 7-course menu with lots of unusual flavors for most Americans and Europeans who have never tried Columbian foods. I strongly recommend that you get the wine pairing... More

This restaurant has the great combination of amazing food, magnificent service and fancy location. The menu is a creative and exotic combination of different Latin food (specially from Colombia) and is served in a trendy way. The salty chocolate dessert is my favorite! Please do not miss it!

Everybody works to give you a night to remember, Bertie with the bow tie from Leamington Spa, gave great descriptions of the dishes and accompanying wines. All the servers worked hard to please. Watching the team working hard in the open kitchen made us appreciate their results even more. 9 courses, 6 wines and no complaints! An evening to remember!

We went to Chila two days ago and it was similarly priced but i Latina was much better. In the week that we went to no less than 4 top restaurants in BA, this is the best. Interesting Colombian/Caribbean inspired fine dining. Don;t come here expecting steak! Service excellent and had a English waiter service us, who was excellent. One... More

iLatina is defintely a different experience, and you don´t feel that you are in Buenos Aires. The food is really great, the service is flawless and the place is beautiful. However, I would not list is in the top 5 places to have dinner while visiting Buenos Aires. Maybe after you have tried everything else....

Best restaurant in Bs. As. and definitely one of the most extraordinary places that I have ever eat. The place itself is very cozy, with few tables and if you don't book it before probably won't find it since they operate with close doors and no signs outside the building. The staff is fantastic, very welcoming and with a wide... More

This is by far the best meal I have ever had. From start to finish, the service , the food is brilliant. Booking a table is painless via the website. The hostess is very charming she will explain the dish and wine pairing properly. The food is divine and the quality of both the presentation and the flavours is out... More

So the chef is from Colombia and owned a restaurant in the south of Argentina prior to opening this one. In my opinion, the cuisine is innovative and different, relative to the more traditional restaurants in Buenos Aires, which most seem to revolve around some sort of grilled meats. They pair the Colombian and other caribbean dishes with mainly Argentine... More
