This restaurant is located in Puerto Madero, which is a wonderful place in Buenos Aires, behind Casa Rosada (Argentinian President´s office). Food is excelent and also their service. Wine list is very good and a table in front of the river (water canal) offer a wonderful view. I fully recommend this restaurant.

This restaurant's cuisine was truly delicious! Their attention to keeping our beverages (specially beer) cold with ice buckets was excellent. One thing to watch out for us who are not use to it was a cover charge of $50 (pesos) equal approximately to $5 per person just for sitting in addition to the cost of the dinner.

Very unimpressed by expensive and poor quality meal. Shrimps with Garlic did not taste fresh... metallic taste. Mixed fish plate was horrid... completely awash in capers which overwhelmed the taste of the seafood... which also was not very good. Would not return and not recommended.

We walked into this place on a hot afternoon and it literally felt like an oasis. Quiet, elegant. cool. Just what I was craving. Even walking to the bathroom was a pleasure as you walk downstairs past a lovely waterfall that fills your ears with a peaceful rush of water. The food was delicious, I ordered the trout, and a...

We sat at the window overlooking the water at Puerto Madero. The atmosphere was very nice. Argentinians love beef so I'd already had a great deal of it. I had the Haddock Paris - With balsamic vinegar, capers, mushrooms and scallion sauce. Rice in calamari ink and potatoes with saffron on the side. It was absolutely Excellent!

Stylish restaurant, with chic staff (particularly the md), well positioned next to the river. One of those places where being chic could overshadow the content, but in this case the content matches the setting. Great food, great wine, and matching service. A good complement to some of the older and more "traditional" steak restaurants such as La Cabrera ... Cristal... More

This restaurant came highly recommended by a colleague who had eaten at Puerto Cristal many times. Perhaps the expectations were set too high but we were somewhat disappointed in the evening. The service was very good but the meal was average at best - I would not go back as there are so many wonderful restaurants in Buenos Aires.

I had steak several times over the course of my trip in Argentina, and the rib eye here was absolutely incredible. I will even go a little further and say it was one of the best steaks I've ever had. The waitstaff was friendly and helpful with wine selections. Overall, a great experience!

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighbourhood Profile
Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect combination of old and new. The river provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away. Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this neighbourhood a unique destination in a city as busy as Buenos Aires. The restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the docks make it a prime spot for nights out and have come to symbolise this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
