I would have given this restaurant a 5*, except for what happened at the end. This is a traditional, classy place with amazing food. We had two fish dishes. Sole with traditional Basque sauce with tomatoes, onion and garlic for 260 pesos. I wanted to try a different preparation, traditional Spanish salsa Verde sauce with peas that was nothing like I have ever tasted. I was going to have haddock for about 280. The server suggested black hake. It had no price. So I asked him if that is even available and how much was it. He said that it would be about 300 pesos. The fish was out of this world. Expertly grilled with sauce being applied at table for presentation. We enjoyed the dinner immensely with a wonderful Malbec he suggested. Finished dessert while reading some Trip advisor reviews. One of them said how they jacked up the prices. So I carefully checked the bill. There was a 40 pesos charge per 'sauce' which was not stated on the menu. Ok. Table service charge of 70 pesos for bread. Ok. Then I saw that my fish was 850 pesos! My total was 1650 pesos!! Are you kidding me? My fish was nearly 3 times the 300 estimate. The waiter explained that the black Jake was 450. It was listed on a different page. I showed him that I was actually charged 850! He said that it was a bigger piece. I was not accepting that. He went back to the manager. My wife could see him arguing all animated. He came back and refunded 400 pesos in cash. I don't mind paying for a nice meal, which it was. I have happily paid a lot more for a meal in US restaurants. But I don't like this kind of BS being pulled on me.
Bottom line. Amazing sea food. Great service. But WATCH your bill carefully. If a fish does not have a price, get a firm number before ordering. For an amazing restaurant, I don't know why they had to pull this crap to lessen the experience.
