“Does not worth it. Muito ruim.”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

We've been here in our firsr time in Buenos Aires and we are certainly not coming back. The food is awesome and comes in very big quantities, but the prices are exagerated and the service is poor. The waiters treated us like children that couldnt pay for the place. When we finished and decided to go back to the hotel (the same as the restaurant is located), one of them was laughing and talking about us, which is pretty unnaceptable for a overpriced restaurant.

“Outstanding restaurant”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

Really outstanding restaurant, beautiful surroundings, lovely atmosphere and very helpful staff. Wine list is superb! Especially the Malbec. Visited with work colleagues, who highly recommended the restaurant. Managed to order fillet steak, even though it wasn't on the menu! Great night. Looking forward to going back

“Great Italian in Puerto Madero”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Recommended by the concierge at our hotel. Liked it so much went there twice. It's a little in the pricier side. The service and food are excellent. The portion of the dishes are large and very flavorful.

“Good+ restaurant, lovely decor and water views, with pricey wine list”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

We were prepared for the prices here by several TA reviews. The well-spiced pasta was certainly good (and large enough to share), salad course was fine (we shared also), but the Salentein Malbec at 200p a bottle was really high. Servicio charge was the highest we ever paid in BA. Excellent waiters, friendly. At the end of the day, bill was 700p for the 2 of us, Yes, we would return for an "event!".
