The food was really good starting with the variety of bread at the beginning. The place is great inside we were on the second floor the service very attentive and at the end we got the dessert experience where the dessert chef comes to your table and put all the typical desserts in the table it was really great.

Located in zona g, this place was amazing. The food was delicious, unique, and hot! The only drawback for us was that we were told nobody spoke english which was odd as the menu was partly in English. There was a tasting menu that we couldn't figure out. We found out later that the pastry chef, who makes an amazing... More

I expected to have one of the best dishes ever, since this restaurant is so famous and expensive. However, I got a bit disappointed. First,the service wasn't the best, and it was kind of slow. Additionally, the food (I ordered lamb) wasn't as goos as I thought it would be. I don't think I'd ever go back.

It's pricey for South American standards but the quality of the food is supreme. Wild mushroom Fricasse is a fantastic starter and the buchanan's sauce steak is to die for. The menu is just too good, makes the deciding part incredibly difficult. For dessert we had the nutella millefeuille and the selva negra (black forrest), the latter was unmissable! Loved... More
