Chef Fernando Rivarola is doing for Argentinean cuisine what Virgilio Martinez has done at Central for Peruvian cuisine and Rodolfo Guzman has done at Borago for Chilean cuisine: take indigenous, local ingredients and present them in elevated, refined presentations.

We ate at many restaurants while in Buenos Aires and El Baqueano stands out as one of our top favorites. The dishes are very creative, well balanced, and delicious. The wine paring is a must as it allows the opportunity to try various wines of...More

Anyone looking to get a taste of Argentina beyond sausages, enormous steaks, and dulce de leche needs to experience El Baqueano. Some of the more experimental dishes bordered on appearance over taste, but that can happen when chefs try to innovate.

I read the reviews about what good value this was for a ten course tasting menu and believed the hype, but left thinking I wasn’t happy paying for a single course. The service was great, the wine pairing was amazing, but sadly the chef didn’t...More

We arrived a few minutes prior to our booking at 20:00 and were quite rudely shooed away by, I assume, the owner. The evening continued on a downhill course. We had the 12 course tasting menu with wines. Each course was unpleasantly presented and was...More

The place looks so cold, without an identity for a wonderful city where it is located. There are some plates in the courses menu that are good (I remembered Indonesia taste, but nobody in the restaurant knew that the plate has an Asian mixture). The...More
