Having been to El Casco a number of times, I've restrained myself from reviewing it, because I keep thinking it has to get better. I've given up. Yes, the room itself is beautiful, but it's downhill from there. The menu is limited and overpriced (it is currently about half the size and twice the price as when they first opened). There are a few good dishes on it, but the inconsistency kills even them. The kindest thing I can say about the staff is that they are at least "nice" people. The sevice was so bad on my last visit ( a lunch where I never actually received a fork, bread plate, water glass, or one of our starters despite asking several times for each), that I've instructed a friend to punch me in the face if I ever go back. If you combine this with the fact that the menu and wine list are laughably overpriced compared to Bariloche's truly outstanding restaurants (Butterfly, Cassis, Naan), it just doesn't make sense to go there.
I must emphasize that this isn't based upon a single bad experience, but at least eight visits over the last 18 months.
