Description: "Lo de Fer" is a truly authentic familiar restaurant attended by its owners. Here you will enjoy a friendly atmosphere, with great food and service. We offer typical homemade Argentinian and eclectic food. We open only at night and making a reservation is highly recommended. Our menu changes on a weekly basis and consists of a 5 course meal (appetizers, starters, mains and desserts, coffee and tea included.) Beverages are not included. We offer a unique experience and we are looking forward to seeing you soon! "

“Wonderful food, warm hospitability”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

My husband and I had been traveling in Argentina for almost two weeks, having some average and some very good meals in Buenos Aires and Southern Patagonia. But our dinner experience at Lo de Fer surpassed all others. We were warmly welcomed by Gladys to the little restaurant she and her chef husband Fernando run in their house. Gladys helped us pick a great wine to go with our fixed meal consisting of several courses (the main was lamb), all beautifully presented and complemented by commentary by Fernando, who made brief visits from the kitchen for each course. The courses were well-proportioned--even didn't seem too much--and was topped of with their home-made peach liqueur (from peaches in their yard). Very reasonably priced, too. Not only was the meal excellent; we had a very nice visit Gladys and Fernando, Very highly recommended!

“Excellent meal and evening”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

Excellent evening at Lo De Fer. Greeted by the wonderful host Gladys who was so warm and welcoming and great fun. Her husband Fernando cooking a beautiful meal, very tasty and generous portions. Great wine and company. Made to feel so welcome especially when Fernando found out that we were from Ireland (where he had worked previously). Shared a bottle of champagne with Gladys and Fernando at the end of the evening to celebrate our honeymoon. Highly recommended.

“Perfection!!”
Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

Such a wonderful experience. Gladys and Fernando go out of their way to ensure a great evening. Food and wine was some of the best we had in South America. Charming in every way. Very responsive on email and Fernando was able to accommodate a dietary request. If you get the chance to dine here definitely go!

“Wow! It's a must!”
Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

Last night was amazing. We read a lot of good words here about this place, so our expectations were already high. But even then we were still surprised by the experience. If you are looking for a different dinner, rich in flavors, conversation and friendliness, here is the right place for you.
Remember to make the reservation in advance and you can also check out the menu on their Facebook page.

“Unique Dining Experience!”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

This was a great dining experience - basically in the hosts' living room with only a few tables. The service was excellent and the food was great - I'm a vegetarian so the chef made me a vegetable risotto which was amazing - even the meat-eaters I was with enjoyed it! It's also BYO wine so you can bring your favorites with you.
