“Astonishing (in a good sense!)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2011

People eat late in Argentina, but when I checked in at 23:45 hrs and this very smart hotel based French restaurant was empty I suspected it would be room service for me... not at all! "We close at midnight Monsieur" - so that was 15 minutes away...no problem, come in, sit down.... 2 1/2 hours later I left very satisfied and happy at having my own private restaurant for awhile! That to me was astonishingly good service - as was the food!
A starter of a perfectly poached egg with morels, champignons and truffle crust, followed by excellent lamb and then some good cheese, delightful wine selection and good coffee. Attentive friendly staff - all in all, very good...and breakfast is excellent too!!

“Chef Olivier Falchi will surprise you in each step!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2011

We went for our 25th anniversary and had more than we thought! The girls at the reception,the mise en place,the decoration are well on top of other 5 star hotels.But nothing prepares you for the incredible succession of dishes Olivier Falchi himself brought to our table! My husband said," This is more than cooking,this is art"

“Elegance Without Pretension”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2011

We dined at Le Sud in the Sofitel Hotel and were treated to great attention from Pablo, the sommelier. We chose the tasting menu paired with wines from Argentina, and as confirmed "foodies" could not have been happier. The restaurant has a relaxed, elegant atmosphere, and the food was beautifully presented and cooked.

“"Excellent food and service tucked inside this hotel"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2011

This outstanding restaurant is inside the new Sofitel hotel with outstanding food and service. Hotel restaurants are often overlooked, but this would be an excellent choice for a special night out in Buenos Aires. We read about it in the New York Times and promised the staff that we would also write something in Trip Advisor! While not quite the level of La Bourgogne, this restaurant has none of La Bourgogne stuffiness and the all the staff were genuinely friendly and conversational. A terrific value by US standards. Loved, loved, loved it!

“Excellent restaurant in the Sofitel BA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2008

Service, food and decor are consistent with the Sofitel Buenos Aires's standard of excellence. All of that comes at a price, but if you want an excellent experience with no risk, Le Sud delivers.
