After hearing about how meat centric Argentina is, we were so happy to be recommended to come here.

We are meat eaters, but like variety in our diet. The food here was unique and delicious. We loved the salad and vegetarian quesadilla.

The space is part indoor/outdoor which would normally be great if there wasn't a heat wave happening during our visit.

We went to Quimbombo based on a hotel staff recommendation for our first meal in Buenos Aires. The meal was ok, although when discussing with my wife whether or not we would go here if it was local we disagreed. If you are looking for organic/healthy type food then you will probably enjoy your meal here. The menu had some variation, although as a meat eater looking for a solid "Argentinian" meal I was a bit disappointed. That being what it is, all of the food was good (we ordered a salmon based appetizer (i.e., lox), quesadilla and salad), but I didn't think they were super flavorful. The server was friendly although a bit slow. As for price, for what it was, I thought it was a bit expensive, but maybe that's just because I wasn't expecting NYC prices in Buenos Aires (about $70USD for lunch with waters)

Poor service at best throughout the entire meal, when we finally received our check the waiter started talking to another waitress with his back to us, we could not get his attention again so got up and went to the bar to pay otherwise we would have been there until closing. The food was boring from the prawns to start, to the entree, even the sitr fry and little or NO appeal and / or taste and it was $85 American with only one glass of wine. I could not recommend this restaurant.

We've been going there for years and keep coming back.
The restaurant is somewhat hidden because it is not on the groundfloor and has a beautiful terrace ovelooking the square. The kitchen is innovative (think fusion oriental/arab/mediterranean) and service is friendly. On top of it all the prices and portions are great!

If you've got food restrictions then this is probably a great place... The food is fresh and fairly simple. But got the prices and bigger portions you're better off looking around... Great terrace though overlooking the square. I went for lunch, but the evening menu looks good you...
