“Beautiful old residence in Palermo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant has the feel of being in an historic dining room. The building is fabulous, the furniture "Victorian", the decor is sophisticated.

The menu is not large, 6 choices for main course. I had bife de lomo con hongas, beautifully cooked prime fillet steak with mushrooms and spinach. The meat was cooked al punto, just as I had asked. Perfect.

For dessert my friend had volcon de chocolate ( I was v.jealous, it looked wonderful!). I had a passion and chocolate mousse which was v.tasty but not presented as well as the volcan,

With wine it cost 160 peso each. There was no rush, they clearly expected out table to be occupied all evening (unlike some of the more touristy restaurants in BA).

Would recommend.

“Beautiful place for a romantic or quiet dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Very good place. Note, our waiter did not speak any english, nor did they have a menu in English. One of us spoke spanish and translated. Prices are a little high, but likely because it is Palermo Soho. The food was delicious, I had the Cordero in Vino Tinto (lamb in a red wine reduction) and it was tender and delicious. Plates are around 100 pesos and bottles of wine range from about 80 to 155 pesos. Three of us had a 500 peso bill when leaving for 3 people, which was a main course and bottle of wine, one of us had a cortado. The atmosphere here is impecible, lots of white and gardens, candles. The bathroom for ladies has a tub filled with water and floating roses which make it smell amazing.

“Super Chic!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Loved my afternoon here. Stopped by while touring the neighborhood Palermo, it just looked so beautiful (and I could see the cakes from the window!) They had tons of different tea options to choose from and their desserts were delicious. The atmosphere was so relaxing and chic, they added the perfect touch to everything. Our server was really outgoing and fast! It was like a little piece of Paris in Buenos Aires.

“Lovely garden and unique shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

I really enjoyed my visit to El Ultimo Beso. It was recommended by a nearby shop keeper. It is decorated in a shabby chic/french cottage style. There is a very cute cafe in the front and then a gift shop featuring jewelry, gifts and accessories which leads into a dining room and outdoor garden. This is the perfect place for a romantic lunch or date with the girlfriends. We originally sat out in the garden but there were too many mosquitoes so we moved inside. Food is pretty good. I had the salmon salad which came with smoked salmon, goat cheese and walnuts. Their limonda is a yummy icy slush perfect for cooling down after a day of shopping. My husband ordered a quiche which was very flavorful and came with a side salad. Our friends ordered a risotto and ravioli which was also very tasty.
