We ate at Casal de Catalunya while in BA and it came highly recommended. Evidently it is famous for its whole roasted suckling pig so we were excited for the adventure. Unfortunately the horrible service made the dinner a bust.
We went on a Wednesday evening at 9 pm, there were 3 other tables occupied. Although we had made reservations, we were not on the books. It was early so we were seated. The two servers acted like they couldn't have cared less that we were there. It took forever just to get them to bring menus. Then I had to wait for the wine list. One waiter kept saying to us "tranquilo, tranquilo" as in take it easy and slow down. Sorry, the lackluster service and downright laziness and lack of any kind of courtesy and graciousness was unacceptable.
The food was very good indeed. But the experience overall was tarnished because of the horrible, horrible service, the worst we had at any restaurant in BA.
