“Lovely food, great piscos, charming atmosphere”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

The restaurant forms part of a boutique hotel. It is not too small so it is advisable to have reservations. The best tables are the ones by the open kitchen (extra show) and for warmer days those at the open air at the back (have heating system but probably not a good idea when really cold). Servings are generous so plan to share. Combined ceviche is advisable if you can't make up your mind, sushi is among the best in town. Sipan rolls very advisable as so are the Tiraditos.The offer of desserts is a bit limited but very tasty. Wines suggested for desserts are worth trying.One objection?The white chocolate with the" mousse al pisco" should be changed for real chocolate.Service was very friendly and efficent and really at the right level as a difference to the early days when you had to wait quite a bit, so this is a welcomed improvement.The selection of wines very good as well as that of drinks, with piscos being a real must. Tourists are very welcome even when a favourite with locals. Reservations until 9pm, you can then go after 11pm and queue up. You will spend about the same as other popular restaurantes at this level but less than in Osaka Faena. The area is a bit dark so you may want to stick (park or walk) to Uriarte and towards the small park as the other is pretty desserted.

“Best place for a pisco sour”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

I've eaten at this restaurant twice in the last month. The ceviche clasico is really and truly delicious, and the pisco sours are far and away the best I've had in Buneos Aires. I would give this restaurant a 5-star rating if only it had more ceviche-style dishes - in a wider variety of fish, say.

“Nice, upscale Peruvian restaurant”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

Went with a group of 6 at about 8:15 pm on a Thursday night. We did not have reservations, but were seated pretty promptly. The restaurant is relatively small, so you may be out of luck but other options are close by. There is little English spoken and there were no English menus. We had enough Spanish knowledge between us to make it work though. We shared the food and got a nice mix. 2 orders of Ceviche, some Yucca, a couple orders of fish. Their alcohol selection is good, but limited (e.g., one type of beer, no red wine, 3 choices of white wine). Service was good and everyone enjoyed themselves. It was a nice change of pace relative to all the good, but heavy beef options.
