This is easily one of the best restaurants in Buenos Aires, particularly if you are adventurous with respect to food and wine. I highly recommend the pairing menu, allowing the chef in the kitchen and the sommelier (they are a couple) in the dining room...More

We went for the seven course menu and the wine tasting. Everything was perfect: the food, the service, the place, the atmosphere. I was surprised by every glass of wine to go with delicious dishes. Definitely an unforgettable experience.

Being in Buenos Aires for so many times I took for granted the gastronomic center the city is for Latin America. It's not all about beef and parillas and malbecs (as much as I love it and it's my kind of adopted comfort food) and...More
