We came here for lunch, attracted by the reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The restaurant is run by a friendly couple of Argentineans who opened the restaurant 30 years ago. Carlos, the chef, will pop out to meet you and ask how the food is, while his wife takes the orders. They have their specialities and we... More

Don't miss this restaurant, open only at noon, certain days. Owners accommodating, entertaining and friendly. Gourmet eating at an excellent price. Salmon with leek sauce is our favorite. Great coffee, desserts gourmet. Retro atmosphere is not to be missed.

The writing of this review has been on my "to-do" list for two plus years. My wife and I visited Buenos Aires in May 2013. We took a day trip by ferry to Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay. While walking around we discovered this very enchanting and inviting restaurant. We arrived approximately 45 minutes prior to the restaurant opening, met the... More

I enjoyed the atmosphere, the fiod, and service...the only down side...and it was not the fault of the restaurant... is that they do not take credit cards and it is on the menu. The bill came to USD$89.00 and we had between us...$89 - our last US currency...we thought it was funny but if we'd only had 88 not sure... More

This place is excellent to have a relax and delicious dinner. My husband and I went in dicember. We ordered foie grass as appetizer and lamb and black ravioli as entree. I really recommend this restaurant. The chef Bidanchon rocks!

The restaurant decor is very unique! It's a museum itself, I am sure it was converted from the owners' house. The menu was not big, but very exquisite! Must get the squid rings, the lamp rack, and the ravioli!!!!!! The tea I ordered was served in beautiful tea sets!! The owners were super nice and welcoming! They spoke good English... More

Tasted the lamb, mussels and... More

The restaurant is tucked away in the corner of the plaza, behind palm trees, the occasional car driving slowly by over the cobbles. A modest entrance leads to a beautiful interior, tastefully decorated with antiques and flowers. Service is prompt, attentive and knowledgeable. The modern fusion-style food is delicious and reasonably priced. Staff were happy just to let me sit... More

Fantastic restaurant if you are willing to splurge a bit. Amazing food and wine with a very friendly chef. Very worth the high dollars. From what we ordered, the salmon ravioli was particularly perfect.
