“Solid Menu plus Good Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Minga was pretty close to our hotel and we didn't feel like a late night so we tried it. Starters were well prepared and tasty. One was a salad and the other from the parilla. Mains were also nicely done. We both ordered pasta for mains - one was a squash/pumpkin ravioli and the other a gnocci with stofado. Both were prepared from scratch with fresh pasta. Frankly, we were surprised that the restaurant didn't get higher marks from the Tripadvisor community. We were impressed and would return.

“Great option in Palermo Viejo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise during our walk around Palermo: nice and modern place, delicious food and good cost x benefit. We tried the executive menu served for lunch, and the meat was definetely the highlight: a very nice steak (bife de chorizo). The service is ok for Argentina (where we can't expect too much).

“Beatiful place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

Great eatery in SOHO in a very vibrant section of town. The rib eye was as good of a steak as we had in BA. Try the mashed potatoes.

“Al fresco dinning at it's finest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

Had a fantastic long lunch here. I ordered the rib eye and my vegetarian wife went for the pumpkin ravioli and a aubergine starter, all of which were huge and delicious. We went for the waitresses recommended wine which wasn't too pricey but was lovely. Definitely visit after a nice morning stroll around Palermo.
