“An Excellent way to end our trip in B.A.”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

Thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Casa Saltshaker. The meal and the wine parings were excellent, along with the intros that Dan gave at the beginning of each course. We had an amazing evening conversing with new people and learning about their varied interests and travels. Casa Saltshaker is a definite must do if you are ever in Buenos Aires!

“A good way to meet interesting people and get an instant expat experience”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

The menu was a bit of an odd mix, but overall good quality food. The portions were big for a 5 course menu but on the other hand, you do not have to finish every dish if you don't feel like it. The wines were great.

The main attraction however was to meet a quite random group of people who in our dinner all turned out to be fun and interesting. Somehow eating nice food in someone else's home with people I didn't know but with who I seemed to have common interests reminded me of expat life.

We don't want people to go away hungry! It is pretty fascinating how quickly people from different walks of life find common interests to talk about - a big part of the fun of these evenings!

“completely good.”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

I couldn't have started my visit to Buenos Aires any better than with a meal in Dan's home. The atmosphere was so enjoyable - relaxing lighting and music selection, likeable company, and timing of the courses. Each course with its paired wine was completely satisfying. I enjoyed the care that Dan took introducing to us the ingredients he used, and the preparation process for the various dishes. I loved having the chance to talk to the people collected around the table, and felt at home the entire time. I appreciate the way that Dan and Henry's food brings people together. I would recommend this to anyone who is up for a night of good conversation and new tastes.

“Great the Second Time Around, Too!”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

My first experience with Dan and Henry was last July. My husband and I loved the food and music selection for the evening. Any musician would adore how compatable each song, dish, and wine pairing were.

I recently brought my cousin to Dan's home and the experience was even better, Each course was elegantly prepared, and the wine pairings were impeccable. Again, the music selection was phenomenal. Dan did an impressive job highlighting the texture of each dish with equally textured songs.

The people were charming and we will definitely be going back!
