We’ve enjoyed a lovely night. Issac (our waiter) was so kind and always pending what we need. Great food, congrats to the Chef!!! Many thanks for the detail to bring a couple of glass of sparkling white wine to cheer in our anniversary
I've been to the Sunday brunch previously and found it excellent. I took a friend this January and the food was disappointing: not quite as fresh, innovative or tasty as in past. I made a mistake and reserved in Vinoteca -when brunch is actually served...in Gioia. I asked the hostess to let Vinoteca know that I had made a mistake and cancel the reservation -but she forgot. Regardless, she found us a table in the garden and the service was excellent. Sunday brunch is fairly expensive, and I missed the great food that I had had previously.More
In a city of abundant restaurants, often very reasonably priced, I don't see the point of having dinner at Gioia. First, it's pretty much in a basement. For sure, it's a pretty room, but no real view. Second, the food, while good, isn't better than...other restaurants with much better prices.
We went as a group for dinner and were seated quickly. The service, though, was a little slow throughout the evening. We ordered a fairly large variety of food between the 7 of us and for the most part, people really enjoyed their meal. There were raves about the onion soup, and a few of the desserts. I had a goat stew as my main, and it was enjoyable, although not better than what I've had in dives in the Caribbean (although clearly the presentation was exquisite). My husband did not like his main, declaring it to be overcooked. While he was quite difficult about the whole thing, I thought the hostess reacted very well in offering him something else (he declined). Unfortunately, I do not know if it was taken off the bill because one of my companions paid it without checking.
In general, the place struck me as generic high end hotel restaurant, with the prices to match. Best to wander outside to the wonders of the streets of Recoleta.More
A rainy, humid Sunday afternoon in Buenos Aires, and we decided to have brunch on our first day in our hotel. The food was plentiful and very good. Huge selection, a la carte meat was deliciously juicy, and the dessert options were copious and enjoyable...- looked as good as they tasted! Not a cheap meal, but you probably won’t need to eat again all day.More

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
also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
