This restaurant oozes charm and style the minute you enter. The lovely garden entrance leads you to the main dining area. The interior of this restaurant could be best described as modern/contemporary and is just so inviting. The menu was fun and provided good variety. The pear, beetroot and cheese entree was outstanding. Great wine list and you could not... More

From the moment I enter this place I loved everything, the decor, the inside garden, the glass features, the menu and even the hostess (who was so friendly and amicable) and I truly thought I find my place in Buenos Aires. The menu was very well set and lots of interesting choices to choose from and it was kind of... More

We were here during the BA food week and enjoyed a 3 course meal including a small cocktail for 400 pesos. Overall the food was okay, but nothing special considering the price (off course they are nornally a bit more expensive). Salmon was okay but no special taste and the pancakes as dessert didnt had a lot of taste. Would... More

This is a very lovely place to have lunch. We had the menu of the day. We started with delicious bread and I had a nice crisp beetroot salad while my husband had the soup which was equally as good. I then chose the fish served on a bed of vegetables, which was divine and just melted in my mouth,... More

Beautiful place, the drinks are works of art done with attention to every detail, the food is beautifully presented but could use a bit more flavor.

Good deco, music a bit too loud. Receptionist not very friendly, service slow, in fact not all main courses arrived at the same time. Wine list boring. Food delicious, really outstanding.

Staying in Palermo

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
