Great experience

Outstanding mix of Andean and Caribbean cuisine. Definitely an unique experience that is worthwhile to try. The waiters were extremely nice as well and explained carefully what we were having. Don't miss this place when in BA.

Went the two times in the same day. Enjoyed the food and the place. A bife de chorizo and some French fries with an orange juice will cost you around 240 pesos. Not the best one I tried but the taste was good.In the downside: it may be my Brazilian culture... it seems they are sloppy to clean the dishes:... More

We had such a memorable meal here. Although we did not opt for the wine pairings there were many couples/groups that did. The service was super friendly and we literally had the best ceviche EVER. The meal was pricey(180USD) by BA standards and by far the most we spent in our ten days but it was a nice special night... More

This is a beautiful restaurant with absolutely incredible food and atmosphere. It is closed door, which is a really fun concept that we were introduced to while in BA. The tasting menu is exciting and every dish has been carefully chosen and crafted to represent the adventurous and warmth that is South America. Among all of the restaurantes in BA... More

We first dined at i Latina shortly after they first opened and we rated it tops in BA for their tasting menu and wine pairing. Our return visit reaffirms that opinion! The restaurant has evolved a bit as there are now many more tables and much more staff at the same beautiful old Casa in Cacharita, a suburb more known... More

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
