“Inventive drinks but service average to bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

The food is pretty good and the healthy drinks are fun and inventive but the waiters are entitled and don't appreciate that you're patronizing their establishment. Customer service makes the food taste better, people!

“Really Fresh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

Loved my lunch here! Tons of different options of teas, mixed juices and fresh, organic meals. Totally different from a lot of places I went to eat in BA and was definitely pleasantly surprised with the different options of sandwiches and salads. The waitstaff was pretty nice, really fast with everything. The prices are a little expensive, but it seems to be about average with most restaurants. I ordered the salad with smoked salmon, and a few of my friends ordered some random fruit and veggie appetizers and they were awesome! If you're looking for a healthier or vegetarian option while in Buenos Aires, Tea Connection is great!

“Refreshing drink healthy meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

This was one of the restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. I went during lunch time and it was very busy with a little wait for a table. The food was worth the wait, I had the grilled salmon meal and a refreshing drink . The meal comes with a complimentary bread sticks and dip which was delicious.
The quality of the food very good, it was full of people and buzzing rather efficient service to process orders and turn around tables. There was an initial wait after being sitted there was no check back on how your meal was and if you needed anything else this could be due to the rather limited floor staff . This is the only reason it I did not rate it a 5.
However if you are looking for healthy , delicious made on the premises food with vegetarian options then this is a place to visit. They will happily put the rest of your drink in a take away bottle with a straw if you ask.

“Light meals, refreshing break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

It's a great place to have a healthy break from meaty meals.
Several teas to chose from, good salads, good natural (fruit based) refreshments.
