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.

El Baqueano is worth a visit. Their set menu is interesting and delicious (apparently, it changes often). The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced. The service is attentive and well done.

Poor guys ... Had jackhammers next door (but we dined very early evening). Very Nuevo and taking risks! Well done! Whinging pretentious ***northern continent nationality withheld*** beside us complained about every course so choose wisely if you aren't a risk taker. We loved it and placed it equally with I Latino.

This was a very enjoyable restaurant. The chef is evidently passionate and skilled and the tasting menu was generous without being too much to each. A couple of courses were a bit similar, and not every combination worked 100% (very close though!) from a personal point of view but is was interesting and accomplished cooking and a very memorable and delicious culinary experience. The ambiance is also very nice - comfortable but not too formal. I would definitely recommend.

You have to book but if you get it early (8PM), you don't have to eat during 3-4hours like told in other comments. We left the restaurant after 1h50, for 8 plates, that's pretty quick.

The food was EXCELLENT, the wine and the advices about it too. There was molecular food, distructured food, and always with local ingredients.

We REALLY love it and even for backpackers like us, travelling on budget, it was a great thing to do, clearly the best restaurant we tried in Argentina

I had the best restaurant experience in El Baqueano while in Buenos Aires. Go for it if you like to experience Argentinian cousine with a touch of art and modern/contemporary food.

they have 8 course menu for about 800 pesos/person plus the option of wine pairing.

really recommend this restaurant, it is not cheap but definitely worth the price. Its for sure the best restaurant in Buenos Aires. If you go, just wait for the Mushrooms dish, its incredible.!!!
