We have always loved this little spot and make it our first stop on arrival, plus we usually make several subsequent visits. It is intimate, serves creative food and has a great vibe, with good non intrusive music. That hasn't changed. Unfortunately, the food and service has. We were excited to take two local friends out for dinner on Saturday night. We arrived at 8.30, which is very early by Argentine standards, there were only two other parties in the room. The restaurant was staffed by two chefs and one server, who already seemed harried. Three of our appetizers, two egg cocottes and one hongos, And the base of the egg dishes were hard. It took at least an hour and a half for our entrees to arrive, all on cold plates. The evening's pork special was dry and the bife de chorizo special very underwhelming. however, one of our party reported that her sorrentinos were really good. We shared an apple/passion fruit dessert, which was great, just as I remember. But overall, it was a disappointing evening. As the restaurant filled up, it was impossible to get the server's attention and one of the chefs had to come out of the kitchen to help her. As a result, our meal dragged out to over 3 hours. They were woefully understaffed for a Saturday night. Having said that, this little place still has tremendous promise. They have the perfect ambience and you get real value for your money. If the food and service had been as expected, it would have been a great meal for four, including wine etc. for under $100. I sincerely hope we can one day again count Social Paraiso among our favourite restaurants in Buenos Aires.
