For already several years I ate at the Melo restaurant, and liked it for its cosy atmosphere among the local Buenos Aires people who come there for the celebrated sunday lunch. This time, again a sunday lunch,but as Bacchus I was a bit worried, even angry. The marvellous Senetiner Malbec was too warm and the waiter told me the restaurant would not provide a cooler for red wine, even when I showed him that on the bottle itself it says: serving temperature 16-17 degrees. Usual problem in many restaurants!. The chef then intervened and brought me the cooler. Then I ordered a bife lomo between rare and 'al punto'. No said the waiter, you have to order it either rare or al punto. I called him dogmatic and asked him te be more flexible. After a while the waiter came with two steaks: I could choose the one best to my taste. One of them between rare and al punto. When I had almost finished that excellent steak the waiter came with yet another one, to compensate for his dogmatism and telling me from now on he will be more flexible.
I like resto's where the personnel really listen to clients, especially when the food is excellent This is a place to recommend. And real value for money. Not only the food, but also the wine is not expensive, and they have very good ones on their list.
