We had the tasting menu which they adapted for my wife sans meat. It was among our best experiences in all our travels. We still talk about the miso dumplings. The staff were friendly and on their game. We would have liked to have just...More

Second visit. First time was 5 years ago when the restaurant was still making a name for itself. Really loved it then and really loved it now. Every dish of the tasting menu was at the very least interesting, and mostly very tasty as well....More

Best tasting menu we had in Buenos Aires. But the overall ambience was arrogant - both chef and sommelier were there but hardly a smile for their patrons. We requested for a list of the fabulous wines that were paired with our dishes but that...More

Seven courses as varied and off beat as we hoped. The wine though was a bit off the mark. Gotta get rid of the euro techno trash music. Some cool or jazz standards would have set the mood much more appropriately

Fantastic Food. Excellent service. An overall wonderful experience. Totally worth the price for the set menu. There was a huge amount of flavour complexity and variety. I am vegan and celiac (allergic to gluten) and they catered for me perfectly. I did not feel like...More

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both
locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee
hours of the morning. During the day, the antique

Sometimes the figure is a man, in opportunities he seeks, others he traces, accompanies, knows, understands, mimics with the earth, leaves walking or riding his horse, leaves traces, and recognizes them, finds food and channels water, see the stars and constellations, eat, nourish, respect the earth.
