The food at El Baqueano was creative and different than you will get in any other restaurant. Occasionally the risks didn’t work, but the majority of the time this results in unique, delicious dishes. Our favorite dinner in BA and a great value for the...More

Run by a couple since 9 years El Baqueano combines the best of Argentina and influences from the rest of the world, not least Asia. Now, there is meat on the menu but not the regular beef but rather rabbit (or its Argentinian sibling), llama...More

We had a lovely evening here! Staff was friendly, food was very good, dishes very well explained, relaxed atmosphere - everything we hoped (and expected) from such a good restaurant! Only negatives are that, for us, service was a bit too fast: the courses followed...More

Seven courses as varied and off beat as we hoped. The wine though was a bit off the mark. Gotta get rid of the euro techno trash music. Some cool or jazz standards would have set the mood much more appropriately

Fantastic Food. Excellent service. An overall wonderful experience. Totally worth the price for the set menu. There was a huge amount of flavour complexity and variety. I am vegan and celiac (allergic to gluten) and they catered for me perfectly. I did not feel like...More

This is easily one of the best restaurants in Buenos Aires, particularly if you are adventurous with respect to food and wine. I highly recommend the pairing menu, allowing the chef in the kitchen and the sommelier (they are a couple) in the dining room...More

We went for the seven course menu and the wine tasting. Everything was perfect: the food, the service, the place, the atmosphere. I was surprised by every glass of wine to go with delicious dishes. Definitely an unforgettable experience.

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both
locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee
hours of the morning. During the day, the antique

Sometimes the figure is a man, in opportunities he seeks, others he traces, accompanies, knows, understands, mimics with the earth, leaves walking or riding his horse, leaves traces, and recognizes them, finds food and channels water, see the stars and constellations, eat, nourish, respect the earth.
