Description: Crizia sets a fresh, international and contemporary cuisine in charge of his cook and owner, Gabriel Oggero. The offer contains dishes inspired on international cookery as Mediterranean, Asian and Peruvian in addition to our typical Argentinian recipes, like grilled meats, Patagonian lamb and South Atlantic Ocean fish. It stands out the oyster bar which is supplied by an exclusive oyster bed in Patagonia region, considered the most important in the city by specialised critics. With a modern and clear design, the salon shows the open view kitchen and the glazed winery, where you can find more than 350 wine labels of all around the world and a storage of 3500 bottles. The main lounge has a soft and warm lighting with ambient music, chosen by a DJ, to create a cozy and pleasant atmosphere. It has comfortable and quite separated tables, tasty fresh flowers decors, a fireplace near the living room area and a huge bar with a great variety of spirits where our creative bartenders make fabulous cocktails. You can also find whiskies, grappas, single malts, cognacs and armagnacs. Art is all around Crizia. We have local painters artworks along our main salon, where you can combine the magic of paintings and the fantastic view through the picture window to Soria alley with it bohemian charming

We arrived at 9pm on a Monday and it was quite empty (the Argentines eat so late!) so no reservation was needed.

The ambience is great, classy, darkly lit, large open space with high ceilings.

Our waiter was very friendly and spoke English to us. We ordered some cocktails and water (cocktails relatively expensive at around £8-9, same price as London! Or 450 pesos). We ordered the prawns with brioche to start, a large portion of three buns that we shared between two. Tasted like a more modern prawn cocktail. We had a ‘free’ amuse bouche too which was cauliflower soup with corn bread. Corn bread was amazing.

We then ordered the lamb and the pork suckling on recommendation from the waiter. It was amazing, each thing on the plate had a different texture, adding something new. We found the food a little too rich for us. We had ‘free’ breads and little dessert (truffle and tiny macaron).

It was a great experience, our bill was 3500 pesos or about £70. We found this a little expensive but believe the cocktails were the bulk of this. We would recommend.

I was recommended to come here for seafood, something not big on the menus in Buenos Aires. It was a beautiful 5 star restaurant in a double height space with courteous and helpful staff.
Noise is kept a minimum, I am not sure how, and the lighting is subdued. Add to that the huge walls are hung with great contemporary art, all you have to worry about is the food. But,... it was superb, the seafood mainly coming from the pristine waters around Las Malvinas as the waiter pointed out to me. I had a superb meal. Highly recommend it if you want a break from the steaks.

From the amuse bouche to the dishes and the wine, attention to detail is the name of the game here.

Set in a refined revamp of a builder merchant store, the ambience is defined by minimalist modern art and architecture.

Friendly waiters take the time to explain the menu and the array of accompanying wines.

I will go back without a second thought. This exclusive restaurant is one of the gems of the Buenos Aires gastric scene.

Very pleasant ambiance, with high ceilings and elegantly simple decor. Service is excellent and the food... well I can’t remember the last time a restaurant really surprised me! I had the tuna tartar, followed by lamb, both dishes cooked, presented and tasted to perfection.
It’s definitely worth the visit!

My 12th country of 2019,and after 8 Michelin 2* or better,this was the finest. A well set out dining room,a waiter sent by God,devastatingly good looking,perfect English and extremely courteous, Joaquin the sommelier gave good advice from the exceptional wine list( this is one of the few places White Stones and White Bones Chardonnay can be found). The oysters fresh, the tuna tartare mouthwatering and seared equally so,and of course the Tomahawk Steak for a member of the Tomahawk Club was out of this world.
This is one of the finest restaurants on the planet,but ,dear Reader,it is by a country mile the cheapest!! My wife loved the food and of course like every other woman was charmed by the waiter!
