Excellent food, quirky and charming host

We had dinner here based on the TA rating, and boy are we glad that we did. The host was charming and full of character, only beaten by his wife's fabulous cooking. If you want efficient, fast food then this is not your place. But if you want a great night out, fantastic food and a great host, then... read more

We reserved a table, based on the strong TA reviews. After being seated, we were given a menu, which was of average length. After a few minutes, the owner came to our table and said that only a limited selection was available. It turned out to be very limited -- one meat dish (rib eye steak) out of about eight... More

The owner was very friendly, the portions were a tad bit smaller than I usually see in restaurants, but delicious! We got a rump steak and ravioli with mushroom sauce, all tasted homemade and fresh, very lovely.

Cozy, friendly and very, very tasty Argentinian food. Short menu to satisfy the most demanding customers. A little bit expensive but still good value, very friendly staff and skilful on advice about your requirements . Excellent homemade pasta and unbeatable steak

Limited menu of family-prepared items served with joy and pride. Owner Alberto manages the front of the house with passion and pleasure. Fondue with grapes is both unique and delicious. Homemade pastas were scrumptious. The meat is juicy and flavorful. While the wine list is small, our Malbec was perfect (and did not break the bank) Ask Roberto to order... More

Best meal we had in Argentina. Steak was exceptional, and pasta superb. Alberto, the owner, is one of those people who make it fun to travel. His wife is the chef. Don't miss it!

We had one of our best meals during a two-week trip in Argentina. The ambience was quirky but interesting. The service was excellent, provided mainly by the owner, Alberto., who was warm and entertaining. Don't miss the grapes & cheese fondue to start--very unusual.

This was our last meal in Argentina and it did not disappoint! The host is amazing, he spends time with all of his guests and explains the menu of the day in detail. He was super friendly and clearly very proud of his restaurant. Try the grape fondue, you won't regret it.

We had a lovely last dinner in Argentina at La Cava. Although I expect that some people would become impatient at the owner's detailed description of the menu, we found him charming. Although they have an extensive menu, they only offer a few different items each day. I expect that this focus on a few items explains the excellent quality... More
