Came here on fy first night in Argentina at the recomendation of a local. Was greeted very nicely by the staff and they where very understanding as to my lack of the spanish understanding. The food was superior to what I would have thought was available in the local area. I would come back again.

We had the dinner on our last night in BA. Fernando and Javi took really good care of us with a friendly welcome. The atmosphere was very cozy (living room style). The food was very pleasant and tasty. We had a good evening and really enjoyed the experience. Totally recommended !

Dining with Fer y Javi is a special experience, in the sense that it's unlike a typical restaurant. You'll find plenty of detailed information in the other reviews. However, we don't really understand the superlatives used about their kitchen. The food is plenty, but not exceptionally tasty. The house atmosphere is special, and can be a + if you like... More

My boyfriend and I had a very lovely evening at Fernando's and his husband's place. Although it was an unusually small group, we enjoyed the company , and the food and wine was excellent. It was a very unique dining experience and we'd definitely go back if in Buenos Aires again. Thanks Fernando and family for a great evening !

I have to admit, this is likely my most unique culinary experience. Our cab driver pulled up to the address, looked around and then drove away, sure that he was in the wrong place. After a bit of a drive we convinced him to call the restaurant and he took us back. The front is very non-descript, in the middle... More

The owners were in contact with us a month before our arrival. They were extremely accommodating to my wife's vegetarian diet, and were very responsive to any and all questions before and after our visit. The atmosphere was delightful, and not forced. It may seem strange to have a restaurant setting inside someones apartment/home, however the chef Fernando and his... More
