“Well worth don’t missed”
Reviewed May 5, 2010

Cabernet twice was the best food experience I have after ten days in Argentina. I am saying twice because one Saturday walking under the sun the streets of Palermo Viejo, was noon when we got to Cortazar square and decided to follow a recommendation to try this restaurant.

Let me give you a brief description of the setting for our first visit. As many in the neighborhood, this old house has the patio facing the corner. A design that the owners with respect for the place decided to keep with the original structure and an old tree that is just right to filter enough sunlight to have lunch with a romantic setting.

The food was delicious we have a local fish that was prepared just right and argula ravioli with herbs. Looking for a white wine, we accepted the recommendation of the waiters for a Torrentes from Salta, Province [I apologize not to remember the name] but was priceless.

The second time, I went for business with some foxes wishing to have the same luck. Hoping the night atmosphere will be as good. This time we sat inside and the décor was nice, dark rouge color on the walls above a checkerboard floor, surrounded by windows, a bar on the side covered with bottles, and old long play covers that reminds you something from your old good days. The music background was good and with a glass of red this time, I enjoyed a lomo cook to perfection, and have for desert a crème brulee [I rather called Crema Catalana because my love to Barcelona], that was delicious. I’ll stop here not to look bias, and because no more words are needed.

This restaurant should shine as brightly as any other. It was superb!!!

“Better options”
Reviewed April 13, 2010

Attracted by the beautiful outdoor terrace; however, service and food was disappointing considering all the other options available. The service attitude was unacceptable...below Buenos Aires standards. Especially put off by the bill literally being dropped on the table without a simple "Gracias" The staff definitely should be more professional in the behaviour.

“Meh”
Reviewed February 22, 2010

This restaurant was reccommended to us by the staff at our hotel. Probably the weakest meal on our trip. Not bad, just not great.

They sat us first on the enclosed patio and we were immediately swarmed by mosquitos. We moved inside, and we still weren't safe from the bugs. All the doors were open and all night we were swatting mosquitos all night.

The service was nice and friendly. But the food was not very good. My husand had spinach gnocchi which look like and had the consistency of dog poo. My ravioli was ok.

The food was overpriced - and they really have to do something about the bugs!

“One of the best...”
Reviewed December 22, 2009

This was one of the best dining experiences during 2 weeks in Argentina. Excellent food, service and atmosphere. We were there mid-week for a late (2:30) lunch - sat inside where there were just 3 other tables occupied with 2, 4 & 6 people (the larger group a business lunch). We had the paillard of chicken w/grilled vegetables & the arugula ravioli w/herb butter and panceta. Along with a glass of wine and a bottle of water each plus tip the total was about 90 pesos each. More expensive than an average Buenos Aires restaurant but well-worth the price. Would definitely go back again!

“romantic garden dining”
Reviewed November 28, 2009

This restaurant has a really nice garden setting patio with 5 or 6 tables to sit out under the stars. The interior is formal, alot of masculine wood showing everywhere. Only problem being outdoors though is that that is where all the smokers eat too.

They do well with fish - my filet of pacu in a butter caper sauce with lime and corn kernels was tasty. My wife's ravioli stuffed with tenderloin in a meat reduction sauce was passable. Nice wine list, had a nice Fond du Cave (Trapiche) sauvignon blanc, all grassy nose and mineral citrus flavour.
