We had to walk quite far down the street to discover this little gem of a restaurant, past all the other more crowded and popular looking restaurants. But it was well worth it. We arrived to find a colourful green cow staring at us through the window pane, and were a little dubious at the start because the restaurant was... More

Very kind owner. From the large menu only choice in three starters, three main dishes and one desert. Starter (garlic gamba's) was nice but already 120 ARS, the steak was excellent (140 ARS), the side dishes were good but very small for the price (55 pesos each). Very little available wines as well. All in all good, but not worth... More

Alberto is a very nice host. He takes his time to take care of you as a guest. He knows his dishes very well, so the explanation is quite thorough and inviting. Starters: grape fondue and garlic shrimp. The fondue was exquisite. We don't even like mascarpone but we loved this dish. Highly recommend.The shrimp was also delicious, but we... More

The ambiance of the place is ok but they need sound barriers, it's too noisy...When we had our dinner, the restaurant was very noisy but yet less than half full, which made me expect an overly priced bill towards the end. The owner, Alberto, who is also the server, is very friendly, though the "over friendliness" makes you wonder what's... More

Alberto works the front-end of this restaurant well. He is engaging and puts a premium on customer service. The Pasta special was the best of the three dishes we tried. The Grape Fondu and Rump Steak were OK, but did not wow us. The wine list is modest and could use a makeover. The ambience was nice.

Alberto and his wife put together an amazing meal, that came with great conversation, suggestions, and wine recommendations. It was easy to see that Alberto invests his heart and... More

What a great experience! The owner is the nicest man, and his wife makes the most delicious food in the back. They only serve a few dishes a night, with suggestions on their favorites. We started with cheese stuffed grapes dipped in fondue... AMAZING. Then we shared the agnolotti (ravioli) with porcini sauce and the noquis (gnocchi) with tomato sauce... More

We arrived early so had Alberto to ourselves and he loaned us the taxi fare because we had no change and arrived in the rain. He explained the menu and we made our choices. Our shared starter of gambas ajillo was flavourful and delicious. My husbands steak was "bife chorizo". My choice was the filled ravioli with fungi; delicious. We... More
