“One of the Best in Buenos Aires”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

This had to be one of our favorite meals during our 9 day stay in Buenos Aires. The staff was amazing and very friendly. My fiancé made a reservation weeks in advance and explained about a food allergy that I have and they said that it would be a problem. They asked about it again when we got there and I had three replacement dishes which were fantastic. I also suggest getting the wine pairing with the meal because they had some great wines that we didn't get anywhere else on the trip. Each of the 7 dishes were outstanding and the atmosphere and building are perfect. This is will be one of our stops when we come back to visit. Don't miss out.

“Fine dining with Latin twist”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

My wife and I enjoyed seven course dining experience and it was amongst the best meals we had in Buenos Aires.

Laura and Camilo made us feel welcome and ensured personal attention all evening as we progressed through the courses.

Great combinations of South American influences enhanced the flavours of each dish.

A very enjoyable evening thanks to Laura, Camilo and Santiago working his magic in the kitchen,

“Fantastic Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

My wife and I had dinner at I Latina while we were in BA and it was outstanding. The host were so friendly and helpful and the food and wine pairings were top-notch. Each course of the tasting menu kept you interested and excited to try the next course. The pork with coffee and sugarcane was a real highlight among a menu full of highlights. At the end of the meal, the chef came to our table and we had a very nice conversation about the meal. I would highly recommend dinner here if you are in BA. An equivalent meal in NY would easily be triple the price.

“Another Glowing Review for a Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

A wonderful evening, from beginning to end. No trouble making reservations through their website. We got stuck in traffic, called to warn them that we would be arriving 20-30 minutes late, and it was no problem. We were greeted personally and personably by the sister and settled in for a culinary experience. My wife, 20-year-old son, and I all had the tasting menu with the wine pairing; each course was nicely served with a brief explanation of the dish and the description of the wine. The meal was the best we had in a week in Buenos Aires, and the ceviche in tiger milk might have been the single-best dish that we ever had in our lives; it was that good!

The next thing we knew, it was two and a half hours later and we were finally ready to leave. When we casually mentioned that we would be visiting Cafayate the next week, we were given recommendations for wineries and restaurants to visit in the area. All in all, a very memorable and wonderful evening.

“Fusion Colombian cuisine with a touch of class!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

We chose the 7 course tasting menu. Each course was delicious and beautifully presented with an explanation delivered in English and Spanish. The staff were friendly and attentive without being obtrusive. A first class meal which I can highly recommend.
