Located in a charming house where the chef lives upstairs, the restaurant appears to have strayed form its roots as an informal gathering place for people who love food. Attention in the press globally has changed the clientele from local to tourist. That would be okay, but the chef appears to be searching for food ideas that are not Argentinian... More

Ocho Once was perfect. Gonzalo was great to deal with by email and then even better in person, not just preparing the food but talking through each course. Each course was delicious, the balance was wonderful. We particularly enjoyed the Gazpacho to start. The house where you eat is also a lovely house. The staff were perfect. And the price... More

Yes, it's a good price for the quality of food BUT the service was laughably pathetic. In the time that we waited for the check, we watched the executive chef drink a whole bottle of white wine (by himself) right in front of us (while mingling with another table, which were obviously his friends). This was not late at night... More

It was great to have the chef come out as each plate was served and quickly explain it all. I know most good restaurants with tasting menus do that, but he had a real excitement explaining his food to us, and we knew he just needed to rush back to the kitchen! Wine pairings were excellent. The couple with me... More

Every 'Puertas Cerradas' location brings a different experience and this one is found in an undisclosed old house in Palermo. The address is only provided after you have secured a reservation. It feels like an intimate, small restaurant with seats throughout both inside and outside. No communal tables as with some of the other puertas cerradas and a nice option... More

We had a great experience at Ocho Once. The food was supreme, sophisticated, loved the menú. The host recomended a Synthesis Sophenia wine Malbec which was really good. We took the 5 steps menú , we enjoyed all of them. The chef explains all the courses he was really nice and the host too. It is a house situated at... More

Following a glowing report some months ago, we had family in town and since the fixed menú had changed we wanted to give it another go. Very disappointing, the new menú really did not have anything delicious nor great or anything else beyond average. The winelist remain a very weak point here, since all wines have to be organic, it... More

We dined here on our honeymoon at the recommendation of our hotel. While the food was lovely there were a few things that were missing from the promised expereince. First off don't go if you are expecting amazing wine pairings. The wine list is extremely limited, almost all organic, and there is no pairing- simply 4 different glasses of the... More

Surreal and magical experience eating in a chef's personal home. One of the best things you'll do in Buenos Aires. They're called Puertas Cerradas (closed doors) and they're the latest trend. After booking online or by phone, you're given an address and arrive at a specific hour for the most enchanted dining experience you've ever had.
