Amazing and imaginative fusion food. The chef's explanations are very interesting and the price is excellent value for what you're getting. No inside tables though, there's a counter and tables outside.
We had a tango lesson above the restaurant and the teacher advised it saying: David is great, experimental but great. And so it was, it wasn’t too experimental but innovative for sure.
Only around 10 seats around the open kitchen, short menu with all delicious...More

Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique
shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
