quite a darkly lit space which makes it atmospheric. Decent food though you may wish to ask them to hold back on the salt during cooking. Extensive wine list. Recommend.

My husband and I went for dinner here as it was conveniently close to the hotel. We were so pleasantly surprised as it ended up being the best meal that we had in Argentina! The steak especially was amazing. The ambiance is great and the service brilliant.

We were very pleased with the dining experience at this place. Well set up, with attentive service and a good relationship between the quality and the price. Homemade bread and pastas were on the menu, light and with nice sauces. The beef was also a winner.

Amazing food but it is an expensive restaurant so wouldn't recommend for the average traveller. The steak was $180 which didn't included a side bringing the meal to $230 plus alcohol. Waiter spoke good English and helped us choose a bottle of wine to go with our steak. If it wasn't for such a long wait time for dessert it... More

Restaurant very cozy! The chorizo is delicious! We drank a wine that is very good and the price is fair called Norton Malbec! Great staff, very good service! Fair price!

Excelente authentic regional cuisine served in a very cozy and friendly room, private, for 7 of us, who we were celebrating a reunion after 30 years. Special place if you love Argentinian gourmet food. Service impeccable. Very nice. I ll come back for sure.

Had dinner in this cute little place, great ambiance. Everything was very good but not excellent. We shared a delicious grilled/fried cheese appetizer, and both had steak entrees. The wine list is very extensive, the service was good and the food was very good.

The food was tasty and reasonably priced. The ambience was nice. For appetizer, I had an awesome trout ceviche. For mains, my husband had a massive piece of steak and I had sorrentinos in Malbec sauce (delicious but too sweet to finish).

Extremely pleased with the food. I had a superb trout dinner. We loved the fresh salads. Very good wine selection of course . The building itself is beautiful -wonderfully restored- great atmosphere. The service is perfect.

We ate here this evening. The building is beautiful. The wine list is extensive and service initially good. I had the 500g chorizo steak. It was flavorful and cooked as requested, but the chef never bothered to remove the silver skin so it was like eating a knee without the bone. My wife had the pumpkin ricotta in Merlit sauce....
