The Cluny used to be one of the most charming restaurants in Palermo Soho. But now it is closed and replace by a salad-cooking lessons place.

We were in Cluny last december, but now the restaurant has closed! A pity ... Cluny had a relaxing environment with comfortable sofas, large bar and soft light. The menu combined regional ingredients (such as Patagonian lamb) with techniques and sauces of French cuisine. A perdition ...

One of my favorite restaurants in Buenos Aires. Nicely decorated as well as a very pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. Menu is extensive and the pasta options are all very tasty. Service as its top level! Highly recommended.

Cluny has a much more European feel, both as regards the menu and decor, than other restaurants we visited in Palermo. Quite dark in decor with comfortable, plush chairs and banquets and clearly popular with locals and family parties. The menu lists many dishes common in Europe but also makes use of some more exotic local materials to remind you... More

It's a gross experience to spoon some mango parfait and find a black, short, kind of curly human hair inside. The grosser and more offensive experience, though, was Cluny's response to us bringing the hair in the dessert to their attention. Colossal fail in customer service-the worst customer service I've had in my 2.5 yrs in Argentina. We got a... More

Funky feel in hopping Palermo district. Very much a locals spot. Top level food and service. One of those memorable meals, but not stuffy. Great vibe.

My boyfriend and I travelled around in south america for four months and the last place was buenos aires. Cluny was and still is one of the best restaurants we tried and the location, the service, the coffe and all the dishes we tried were just excellent!

Read the reviews and decided to visit this bistro like restaurant in the Soho area of Buenos Aires. They have an excellent priced fixed menu for lunch that includes your choice of either appetizer or dessert with main course plus a glass of wine( how nice is that) plus coffee,tea or Champagne. That was about $20.00 US. My husband had... More

We loved Cluny on our first visit last year, and would have given them 5 stars if we had reviewed. This time things were a little off. The staff was pleasant, but not terribly attentive. No big deal. The problem was our appetizer, Philo Dough w/mushrooms came from the kitchen within minutes of ordering which always scares us. Sure enough,... More

We had dinner at Cluny on our very last night in Buenos Aires. The menu was creative and french inspired. My meal was delicious and definitely didn't disappoint. Wine selection was plentiful from the local Malbec to french imports.Cluny provides a bossa nova elegant yet relaxed atmosphere. Service was excellent. It was definitely a memorable Palermo dining affair!
