Check some photos of the exterior before you head to the restaurant - it's easy to miss it specially at night. Service is great but the food is beyond perfect. There is no better way to taste Patagonia flavors/textures! Francis is THE guy!

It is with a heavy heart i write this review - me and my mother had the worst dining experience of our two weeks in South America here. I booked this restaurant for my birthday at the end of our holiday as a celebration and it was the worst meal I can remember ever having. From the moment we walked... More

We went there for our anniversary and was simply fantastic. With a touch of the great Argentinian Chef Francis Mallmann, this place is not your typical restaurant. You do not know what the menu will be, and you will be treated to a "mystery" 6 course dinner like a queen and king. Despite the very high price ( I mean... More

I went here while traveling for work. Definitely recommend for large groups. The food is amazing but ask questions because hearing about the preparation makes it even better.

Only a few tables in an eclectic location. Unique cuisine, showcasing the skills of Mr Malman. I would definitely go back again.

My daughter spent a semester studying in BA, and we took our extended family to visit her for Christmas of 2015. She had seen the Chef's Table documentary on Mallmann and encouraged us to get a reservation there. It was a bit difficult using the online system to try to get a reservation for a party of 11 over the... More

This is some of the best food I have ever eaten. I could care that we had to pay in advance, it makes sense once you are there and see how small the place is. Out of all the courses I only didn't love the main entree which was like the 5th or 6th dish was a little too salty,... More

We had a great dinner here, but given the price, it was not a good value. The food and wine were wonderful. The other tables were all tourists. The chef's celebrity status makes it the kind of place people brag about having visited. I don't regret going, but I regret the price. We had quite a few dinners of equal... More

We expected that Francis Mallmann's food preparation and tastes would be extraordinary, but only two courses fit that description. Everything was prepared well and looked very attractive, but only the main course- chuck steak with smashed potatoes and chimichurri- and the dessert plate, an assortment of divine pastries, had the flavors, texture, and tastes that were sensational. The dulche de... More

Staying in La Boca

Neighborhood Profile
La Boca
A neighborhood defined by its immigrant roots, La Boca still maintains this past alive in its streets today. Due to its proximity to the river, the neighborhood became the preferred settling area for immigrants of a wide variety of origins, who ended up living together in the conventillos. Thus, these houses became a melting pot of different cultures and traditions that birthed creations like tango and lunfardo. Nowadays, this legacy can be seen and felt on Caminito Street, which welcomes visitors with colorful facades, cobblestones, and street artists showcasing their skills. Just like its neighbor San Telmo, La Boca is one of the prime destinations to experience the traditions and customs that originated from the city’s immigrant past and which have shaped its distinct identity.
