Perfect!

Exquisite food, delicious paired wines, fantastic service in a beautiful environment for a relative bargain (100 USD per person)! Go (but book early).

It is really refreshing to find a restaurant that is drawing inspiration from a new and different source - this being Columbian cuisine - and using it in a very modern molecular way. If you are keen for the full experience the wine pairing was similarly well done and highlighted the Argentinian and Chilean wines wonderfully. Note that they have... More

The most authentic flavors of Colombian and Latin American food made with great skill and precision. i-Latina took me back to my home in Colombia and a journey through Peru, Chile, Mexico and Brazil, all in a wonderful night not only to remember but to repeat. The best attention in a warm and comfortable place. Now, thanks to i-latina you... More

It was an adventure getting there by cab but well worth it. You immediately feel welcome as you enter the restaurant which is in a converted house. The wine and food pairing was spot on as everything complemented each other so well. The staff explained each course and the reasons for selecting the matching wines. And, I should mention that...

With all of the fantastic reviews we were looking for a flaw, but never found one. Service, friendliness, creativity, ambiance, pairings and most of all, delicious food. The only place I can compare this to is the Herb Farm in Seattle. Much better than the pretentious French Laundry in Napa.

If you enjoy innovative food and want a new experience then this is the restaurant for you. This was truly a closed door restaurant as described, with no name visible and a door that indeed was locked. So from the start you are having a new experience. The menu indicates that the ingredients are South American entirely and as we... More

One of the best restaurant i ever met. Every step was a perfect ensemble of textures, flavors, smells, finest presentation and a stellar service. Each step is a piece of latin american culture and how this mixes with the finest Argentinian wine and a educational speech is extraordinary. It is a journey for Latinos and foreigners into the roots of... More

Creative fusion of traditional Central and South American food. The breads were amazing. The beef cheek mole was awesome. This was the best meal we had in BA. Don't miss it!

The dinner at i Latina was delicious. The 7+ set menu was a great deviation from the usual steak menu in Buenos Aires offering a diverse mix of flavors and tastes. We didn't opt for the wine pairing but our waiter recommended a fantastic red wine and provided some additional background on the vinery. The service was impeccable and each... More
