This place is amazing! From the moment you arrive everyone is attentive and the food is out of this world. Dont miss the pool, the view of the lake while relaxing is a must. This is the place to be if you want to relax and forget about the world.

My wife and I had lunch here at recommendation of a friend in Buenos Aires. We were not hotel guests. The outdoor setting is stunning. Food and service were superb. Servers spoke English. We had trout, salad, and soup. Pricey, but reasonable in US dollars compared with similar fine restaurants in North America.

We are adventure travelers, preferring to spend every possible minute exploring/hiking/paddling. For the first time ever we found ourselves wanting to be at our hotel!!
