We visited this restaurant on a Sunday afternoon as we were spending time in San Telmo. It is a lovely building but the ambience is ruined by a TV set in the dining room. No-one was and the sound was off but the pictures were flashing. Very strange. The food is simply prepared, much like rural Italy or an Argentine parrilla. We chose the house antipasto for 2, which was a plate of prosciutto, a couple of bits of cheese, some tomatoes and arugula, dressed by the waiter with a glop of olive oil. It was only OK. We then shared a very dull caprese, which was thick cut and came swimming in oil, standard Argentina style. Our final course was local fish, simply grilled. The server got the order wrong but we didn't want to make a fuss. However, we had to send the fish back as it was under-cooked. It came back exactly as it should have been served. Our side was another boring plate of arugula. I think if you go to this restaurant you might avoid the fish and opt for pasta, which we understand is well done. But frankly I would not bet on it. Quite a disappointment. They also offered us a very poor exchange rate, which left with a sour taste. In total we spent more than $100, with a bottle of wine and sparkling water. Not worth it.
