Very innovative dishes with complex and intertwined flavor profiles. Very elegant atmosphere. Would recommend on a visit to BA. On our visit most recently the menu didn't particularly resonate with us, hence the missing 5th star. There is a menu - and it's a 11ish small plate tasting menu. So if you aren't in love with the chefs selection that... More

I had dinner here some weeks ago, after many years of hearing a lot about the place and also its current ranking on the list. The outside looks very unassuming, but its a nice surprise to step in to a very cozy room, with nice lightning and serene atmosphere, with the kitchen in the end of the place. We ordered... More

What an amazing degustation meal. We had the full wine option also. The flavours, presentation and knowledge of the waiters were top class. The selection of wines were outstanding. The exterior of the restaurant is a basic graffiti wall which cleverly hides the cosy but classy interior. Such a great experience!!

The outside of this restaurant in very unassuming but the inside is very beautiful. The look, ambiance and service are very good but they don't make up for so so food. We had the 12 course tasting menu with drink pairings and we really enjoyed 3 or 4 of the dishes. The corn crackers with roasted red pepper, green beans... More

In our opinion this restaurant is overrated. Supposedly one of the best dining experiences in the city, we found the 12 course dinner to be creative but also very heavy. Be prepared to sit through two hours of dining that usually goes late into the night. But at around U$150 per person the price was not bad considering it included... More

If you go, you have to try the 12 courses tasting menu. If you are not willing to, just do not go, since the rest of the menu s very, very limited, and not interesting at all. However, the tasting menu is excellent. Is pricy. However, it is a good deal for what they offer. They respect the product, working... More

Great service, amazing ambiance and very tasty tasting menu! Large size portions, so we weren't able to finish the last dishes, but they all tasted heavenly! Same happened with the wine paring, very generous pours, so there was plenty left in my glasses by the tie we were done! :)

Heavily overpriced. The menu is interesting but the taste is not more than average. Water is filtered from the tap. Second visit, second disappointment. Won't go there anymore.

This restaurant is supposed to be one of the better places of South America. In my view, highly overrated.. It started with the reservation. Made one for 3 people and when we arrived, there was only a reservation for 2. Could have been miscommunication, however to a party that arrived just after us, exactly the same happened. It did not... More

At night we could not see the address on this restaurant. The graffiti filled black doors make u wonder what r u doing here. Once they open the door you are in a fabulous restaurant, with very nice employees and delicious food. We were the first group when they opened at 8:30 and by the time we left the place... More

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
