“Great Food”
Reviewed 17 December 2010

This was probably the best restaurant we had dined in during our entire stay in Argentina.

My family loves seafood, and Kaupe had offered dishes that never tasted that good anywhere else. We ordered the natural king crab, and even had sea bass done up in sashimi style.

We ordered beyond our limit because the food was so good, and the staff were very attentive, never failing to fill your glass when it started to look empty.

“Excellent quality food”
Reviewed 6 December 2010

Absolutely delicious meal, perhaps one of the best we've been to in Argentina. We had the seafood tasting menu with accompanying wines which turned out to be great value as we got a whole bottle of wine between us, followed by a glass of dessert wine and a glass of champagne, and also got to try two of their speciality crab dishes. We asked to change the main dish so we both had a different one and they were very accommodating - everything was absolutely fantastic, especially the two crab dishes - very highly recommended. Do go if you like great seafood!

“Romantic and Classy Dinner”
Reviewed 6 October 2010

4 blocks above the main strip, Kaupe offers great food, perfectly cooked, unique dishes, with attentive and professional service. they provided a nice vegetarian meal for us, as well as great arctic scallops and King Crab Kaupe, well worth having. Great wine list, and the deserts were also great. it is not cheap by any means, but is a great dining experience.

“Great restaurant. One of the best in Argentina.”
Reviewed 5 September 2010

Me and my wife visited Kaupe half a year ago. We loved it. The dishes aren't extremely complicated but the quality of the ingredients is simply stunning. I can dream of scallops and
crab this great. I would say that this restaurant would be close to a Michelin star (if there were M stars in South America). The service and view are great. The price / quality ratio to my (European) standards was great. For Argentina the prices here are a bit high (but so is the quality). Definitely go here.
