When in Recoleta, you might be tempted to lunch at Matias Design on their lovely outside patio. Beware! I ordered a salad and gnocchi. While the salad was excellent and a meal in itself, the gnocchi were the worst I've ever had, and the service was even worse than the gnocchi! I had to request bread (normally automatically served as part of your "servicio de mesa" for which you will be charged), and the server did not offer any kind of sauce for the gnocchi. (I assumed that they would come with the house sauce as it was the daily special.) As a result, they were served bare naked, and I ate about three of them before sending them back. To their credit, they did not charge me for the gnocchi. There are much, much better options near the cemetery in Recoleta.

Reviewed 18 November 2011

We stopped by here for an after dinner cocktail, from the exterior it looked trendy and it was open so I persuaded my date to enter with me for a late night cocktail. I normally find new places and explain what made me visit, trying not to be too negative my only words are the drink pour was very un Irish pub like, the service was poor and the prices were higher than New York, the neighborhood is upscale so perhaps you get away with it but there are so many excellent spots in Buenos Aires where, you can find a much more reasonable place for drinks. My first disappointment. two cocktails, $40.00 US,
Makers neat and absolute orange. My girlfriend Argentine had a few words I shall not repeat but none the less, perhaps it was a bad night or one must pay New York prices even in Buenos Aires, I see there are other locations and my comments are to this location only.I realize that importing anything not made in Argentina is costly, so perhaps the huge selection of alcohols traditionally not found in most bars is the reason for the high cost, the place had the feel of a pub but the lack of clients perhaps reflects the prices.
