“Good food, few smiles”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

More than a bar, it is a very good restaurant. The service is just correct, no smiles, but the food is delicious. They also have a good selection of wines.

“Bar? More than a Bar!”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

You may call it a Bar restaurant because of its short menu. Still the freshly made fish dishes including Peruvian ceviche, the spinach dumplings, some smart desserts, the nice attention and the friendly owner help for a cosy atmosphere. The price is moderate. Santé may not stand out and only its neighbours may know about it but it is a "Pearl" ;it is worth going for dinner. Not to be missed

“Still a safe bet for a quality meal”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

We come to BAs every February and rent an apartment in Recoleta. Sante is always one of our first stops because it offers a carefully considered menu in a small, cosy neighborhood setting. It's a change to hear quiet jazz instead of the noisier rock or hopped-up tango favoured elsewhere. It isn't fancy, just offers delicious food at reasonable prices -- a welcome, peaceful oasis after eating at some of the larger restaurants and parrillas. Well worth trying if you are in the area.

“A fantastic experience with excellent food at reasonable prices.”
Reviewed December 21, 2011

SANTE BAR is a place I like to return every time I'm in Buenos Aires, because the quality of food is amazing, the service personalized and the value unique.
The Jazz music background gives the right touch to set up.
Pablo, the owner, is always there and makes sure that your experience is great.
Expect reasonable prices, great food, good wine, cosy atmosphere and lots of enjoyment. In a nutshell: a owner who really puts the consumer on the kings chair. And if you miss something, please, don't mind to tell him or ask!
Cheers.
