“Very Average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

We are staying in Puerto Madero for a month - so far we have found the restaurants to be very average - and this one is no exception - the cost is high for very average - or below average food and the service was average if not bad -

“Excellente”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

After a lousy steak dinner last night, we saw this restaurant on our walk back. It was packed on a Sat evening. We have eaten really good and really bad Mexican in the US so were a bit skeptical about a Mexican restaurant in BA.
the small staff was very pleasant. we were offered a menu in Spanish or in English.
I had ordered a drink, Caphirania. this drink was so strong I asked,for extra ice. the good news was that for 30 pesos, it lasted the entire night.
My husband ordered a chicken mole and I ordered. Chicken dish with coke, couscous and vegetables. They were both outstanding. The flavors of both dishes were complex and delightful. the portion size was also very good.

For dessert fwe shared a tres leches. Again done very well. the pound cake really stood up to the leches, and didn't turn into mush as some tend to do.
the bill came to about $60 us, which was good for what we got. While the service was a bit slow, we never felt ignored.

we would highly recommend it, and would go back.

“DF in Recoleta”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

In the strip of restaurants between Peña and Pacheco de Melo, a new DF has opened.
It is small with outdoor seating and serving the same nachos, drinks and "Mexican" food that can be found at the original DF.
If you are in the area, it is excellent for a stop, a snack, some people watching.
There is also a lovely little private park and playground if you have children with you.
