The restaurant has a rather cold aesthetic, and a bit of hauteur. The first course was rather good, but the main course of Agentinian beef ( tough and tasteless) and a trout that was very fishy and could have used a bit of acidity. Our waiter never asked how we liked the food, but I definitely shared my opinion with... More

In a city full of gastronomic offerings Chila is a great place but too expensive. Dishes though excellent are too small service is great but the wine guy is a bit snobbish and not up to the place or price of the menu. Had a great time but would not go again, did it once and checked it off the... More

Lovely restaurant; great setting, helpful staff and excellent food. The calamari starter and soufflé dessert were amongst the best I've ever had. The pork main was comparatively disappointing but still enjoyable.

Worked our way through the 7 course tasting menu, in truth not at all overwhelming. The courses were nicely balanced and very well presented. Service was excellent, attentive without being over-bearing. One of the better meals on our trip around South America.

Chila is on "the strip" of restaurants on he wharfside at Puerto Madero. Don't let the fact it is two doors down from MAC Donald's distract you from thinking this is anything other than fine dining, which it is. There is a choice of 3 or 7 course tasting menus, with or without wine pairings. I tried the 3 courses... More

Lovely location on the waterfront. We felt important the minute we walked in the door. We chose the 3 choice menu. We received a snack from the chef before the meal started. My first course was the shrimp cocktail with capers. The crunchy capers and aoli made this dish very special. Next our waiter gave us duck rolled in a... More

This is one of those restaurants that when you look back collectively on all the best places you've pulled a chair to table, you'll remember as a top 10. I was greeted warmly by the hostess and handed off to Marc the matre'd. He spoke English well an I was offered a choice of tables. As a solo dinner who... More

We had some great meals during our stay in CABA and Chila was certainly our favorite. This is higher-end dining but our entire experience was top notch. We had a nice table by the window with views of the PM waterfront, the service was excellent, and the food was muy rico ! We both enjoyed different selections from the 3-Course... More

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighbourhood Profile
Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect combination of old and new. The river provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away. Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this neighbourhood a unique destination in a city as busy as Buenos Aires. The restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the docks make it a prime spot for nights out and have come to symbolise this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
