This time I went with my wife and friends a we were delighted again with the best. This time the place was packed. Not a single spot unoccupied. Still the service was flawless and the Tiramisú cake was my desert for this occasion, just perfect.

Two disappointing meals, once for dinner, another for lunch with fish choices. Over salted, undercooked, dishes both times. At least the pastas, risottos and polenta choices are still worth a return visit. I love what the chef does to artichoke appetizer. Service less than I'd...More

Best option ever tried in my long story with Buenos Aires. Small and cool place, nearby Recoleta spots. Food is excellent, service friendly and wine cellar has a well-assorted selection of prime quality Argentinian wines.

Classy fine dining with delicious pasta to match. The kingcrab ravioli is phenomenal. The foie gras ravioli is delicious. The venizen ravioli is scrumptious. Wish we could have sampled every pasta dish on the menu.

Remarkable food. I had octopuss carpaccio and capellini in brodo. Both excellent. The wine list is somewhat conventional but the prices are moderate. I recommend Durigutti Reserva Malbec a great value for price combination. Setting and service are soothing and reasonably attentive respectively.

Characterised by the French-style mansions which are
the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the
true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this
neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos
Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment
buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions
turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude
an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll
