Hands down our best meal. The vibe in this place is amazing! Also, I had the best Manhattan martini of my life here--and the bartender is a STUD--worth going just for that. The steaks were amazing, the appetizers wonderful, and the dessert to die for. Don't miss this. The place is funky, cool, fun, and HOT!

Fantastic cafe! Local flair, great service, great wine menu. You can't go wrong and this is the kind of place that makes you feel more like a local than a tourist!

We had lots of great meals in Buenos Aires, but this was our favourite. A small restaurant with a bohemian feel to it. My wife and I are in our early sixties, sowere probably the oldest in there, but we just loved the atmosphere. Our enjoyment may also had something to do with the fine range of wines and beers...

A tiny place where the food is simple but great. Real local-joint feel. Nice music in the evenings. And, late enough (for Buenos Aires standards) you could be surprised: sometimes the tables are piled to make room to dance. It could be loaded

A great and varied menu, ranging from Lomo De Bife with a mustard cream sauce (I'm not usually a fan of sauce on beef, but WOW, this was amazing!) to Salmon, this is just a great restaurant. Fantastic, friendly service, a real local-joint feel. Nice selection of wines, very fair prices. On San Martin just down from the Marriott. A... More

We had lunch here twice as it was just opposite out hotel. The first lunch was during a weekday. The place was absolutely packed. IT took them almost an hour to bring our order to the table. But the food was good. The highlight was "lomito" (fillet mignon) in mushroom sauce. The second time was on Saturday. We were the... More

We went our first night in BA which was good because we were a little jet-lagged and not up for a "fancy" dinner. This place was more "bistro" like. The staff was so friendly (not much english spoken though). Seems like a lot of locals hang out here, the food was delicious. We shared the pita and homemade hummus and... More

Mixto wok was julianned vegetables drowned in salt and soya sauce with a generous portion of beef and Chicken mixed in, for the money I... More

Boy, for a quaint local place, it served up one of the best meals I ever ate. I had the "Lomo DaDa" and can't say enough about it. They referenced the meat as Lomo Medallion, but it turned out to be THE MOST TENDER, JUICY Fillet Mingon I ever had. The beer on tap was great. I went back two... More
