We went here in the evening with a group of 5 friends. As one reviewer commented the owner takes the orders but doesn´t seem to do any of the cooking. The menu is a bit all over the place - yes I understand it is influenced by French colonial cooking but what are the ravioli doing on the menu, probbaly afraid of losing the conservative Buenos Aires patrons.
The starters were pretty decent, the ceviche was well spiced and the dumplings seemed home made.
The main courses were below par, most of the dishes were at best luke-warm. Not sure what caused the delay in the kitchen. To his credit the owner said that the 3 desserts we ordered would be on the house. They were pretty good, especially the apples with cinnamon ice cream.
The ambience is ok, the decor is starting to look a bit tired. This is a general problem with the restaurants in this part of Buenos Aires. The buzz has gone a bit and the restaurants will need to up their game if they want to keep on attracting the customers.
