We’re staying in a nearby hotel. Ate here twice in the last week. The food is excellent and the service is old fashioned and truly wonderful. Their steak is among the best in all of Buenos Aires. They have a good wine list. Prices are...very reasonable. If I lived in the area I’d eat here at least once a week.More

A small but well catered bar/restaurant and shop very near the Japanese gardens. You can have breakfast or lunch, there’s a daily menu: we chose for the pizzitta (small size) which was very well prepared and had a soft drink and a dessert + coffee...as well.More

We had a lovely midweek evening dinner. There are two dining rooms that are cozy and attractively furnished, the noise level was minimal and the service excellent. More importantly the food was delicious - especially the chef's signature dishes.

Last night I had dinner there with my friend Dr. Miranda. First: a bottle of DVCatena Cabernet Cabernet at 1.100 pesos! We each had 6 shrimps sauteed in aliolio - good. I asked for a steak - har tu cut, impossible to eat - overcooked...and HARD. I tried 3 pieces and had to spit them out of my mouth. My firend askes for potato gnocchi eith portobello muchrooms, spinach andcrea. No trace of a Portobello muchroom - all common tiny champignons, much cheaper in the stores. They brought the bill and charged me for the meat. I asked for the owner, who was in the place,. I saw her. She refused to come. I told the waitress I would not pay for the meat, she talked with the owner and said I had to pay. I refused. The owner never came. They finally sent a new check with meat not included. I paid and left 0 tip as a message. Will never return. Suggestions - do not go ther!More

Had great lunch just a couple of salads but good portions and very tasty. Waitress had told us cash only. As we only had about 750 pesos on us at the time we had made out choices to stay within that amount but has not...budgeted for a cover charge for the bread and dips brought to the table. As a result we were about 50 pesos short. We explained to the waitress one of us would need to pop to an ATM but she told us not to worry and just pay us what we had.More

We went there with my Saturday dinner party last Saturday, The place is an old building - one of the inner walls is am ex outside wall, with balcony and window included. The food, excellent, the lady owner charming. The wine list awful, The good...wines in the several thousand pesos per bottle range. We had a more reasonable one, the name has to do with horses. It was 12.1%alcochol and 15ºC temperature. TERRIBLE. suggest they quickly add some Cabernet >Francs, Cabernet Sauvignons, syrahs, etc. at reasonable prices and at ROOM TEMPERATURE. And higher alcohol content. This hadno bouquet, and no taste. Urgent for the owners to provide. Still, the place and the charming owner are well worth a visit!More

Even though we live in the neighborhood, we haven't been there since 2 yrs. we were pleasantly surprised about the lovely Ambiente, outstanding service and excellent food and wine. Creative pasta variations (shrimp curry spaghetti, salmon spinach ravioli), delicious desserts (apple strudel and tiramisu). Reservation...needed! Buón appetito!More

Founded in 1995 by the Mena Brothers, this Italian restaurant has become a true classic in Palermo and Buenos Aires. Having visited the place many times during these long years I notice the quality and service have been always the same: excellent. They were able...to maintain the high standards set when the restaurant was opened. Of course, being Italian style, it should be famous for the pasta, which is very good, but also the risotto, the meat and the desserts are highly recommended. The atmosphere is quiet, traditional, and service is efficient and kind. Prices are fair. You will never be disappointed here.More

My boyfriend and I landed here after meeting a local who recommended it. We had watched a tango show downtown and stopped here on our way back to the hotel. It was late and when we got there we thought it was closed. The owner...made sure to run over and greet us, she was very kind and welcoming and assured us it was ok to come in (as we were the only ones in the restaurant and didn't want to impose if they were closing up). The ambiance was amazing and we didn't feel awkward even though we were the only ones in there. The service was fantastic, the owner even came over and spent some time chatting with us and getting to know us and of course....the food was spectacular! Highly recommend this place!More

This is a must while in BA! We were tired of the typical Argentinian steak and BBQ (which we love but not every night) and wanted to try something different! Great decision to come here! We had Pumpkin tortellini, Potato Ravioli with salmon and Tagliatelle...with pancetta - each delicious! Try the deep fried olives! Great for a romantic night or just friends hanging out. Beautiful ambiance.More
