Really good food. Several options of entrees and main dishes. The only down side is that after around 9 pm the place gets really crowded and attendance comes really slow.

I went there for dinner with friends and we enjoyed everything: the food, the service, the décor, the liveliness. The menu was varied and food was great. I would definitely go again.

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to

port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest.

A meal with wine will cost you a average of 1000 pesos (65 USD). This is one of the best restaurants of Argentina. I recomend you to try it.
