Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The whole experience was just …perfect!! We opted for the cocktail experience before hand which was only $10 more per person but totally worth it!! We had a little bartending class with Pietro who was just absolutely the cutest. So funny and charming!!

From there we went upstairs to the dining room and the rest of the guests joined us. From the amuse bouche and empanada making to the main course and dessert, we just had the best time. It helped our table mates were all so friendly and talkative …having unlimited wine didn’t hurt either.

I definitely recommend this experience. 1000% would do it again if I ever find myself back in Argentina!!

This was an absolutely incredible way to end our time in Buenos Aires! Camila and Manu were excellent dinner guides who offered a combination of humor and knowledge throughout the night. The atmosphere is incredibly welcoming, allowing you to meet people from all over the world. The food is DELICIOUS, particularly the empanadas, tapas, and steak. I highly recommend this experience!! You will not be disappointed.

Excellent experience to get a taste of Argentinian food and meet new people. Hosts are great! I am allergic to dairy and they provided ingredients and dishes dairy free. Food is also great. I totally recommend this activity.

What a great idea this is! We had a fantastic time with empanada making and fun all around. The food was fantastic, and the staff were all young people with loads of personality. The wines were high quality and they never stopped coming all night. Typical Argentinian food was served. All in all and great night out!

What an Experience. The host (Paola) doesn’t only speak 5 languages she is funny and good! Gives you a relaxing high quality dinner and unique in his kind. I was lucky to have Brazilian and American table guests and we had a wonderful night. Perfect in balance what you may ‘cook’ yourself and what they do for you. By cook I mean fixing a cocktail, empanada and a mate (tea). This was in iguazu by far the best diner and night. Thank you team Argentina experience.

Such an amazing experience! Went with a group of 8 friends, and I highly recommend doing the full experience. I can't say enough about how much fun we had. Also, it was a 5 hour experience... not 2.5 hours. Well worth the money. The drinks, the food, the instructions, the staff, all of it was perfect and worth every minute and every dollar.

from the greeting to the goodbye - this was a fantastic, social get together with other travellers visiting the city. Great for sharing stories and experiences; whilst drinking cocktails, smelling flavours, empanada making challenges and all topped off with great food. Mate is it's own experience! All round relaxation. We were there for Christmas Day as we wanted a different kind of experience - it met and exceeded our expecations. It was a little difficult to find the doorway - because we walked up the opposite side of the street and missed the signage. Professionally delivered experience. Definately one to recommend for any first time visitor to the area.

Had a great time here - very interactive experience, paired with fun facts and tips regarding Argentine culture! We were taught how to make our own empanadas, which culminated in a contest to see who's was the most creative. We also learned how to order our steak in Spanish, as well as some common expressions. The courses we were served were top notched as well. The empanadas, pork and steak, in particular, stood out. The dishes were paired with wine as well and we got fun chef hats to wear. Awesome time for our large group.

A very fun and interactive evening learning about Argentine culture. We sat at a table with people from all over the world sharing travel stories, drinking delicious Argentinian wine (which kept flowing through out the evening), making empanadas, and enjoying a wide variety of traditional foods. Learning how to do typical hand signaling was a blast.

This was a fun evening packed with excellent food and wine and lots of it. We learned so much about Argentine food and customs. The appetizers just kept coming and then an entire sreak meal was served, complete with three desserts! Four different wines flowed plentifully. The empanada making was great fun. We definitely recommend this experience.
