Argentine food is very good but tends to be less spicy. Not so Peruvian Cuisine, the raisond'etre of Tanta. The spicing and sauces are superb. This is a place to linger and enjoy.

Peruvian food in BA - one of our faves. Freshly made and beautifully presented Peruvian/Chilean specialties, with a bit of fusion. Our large (9) party focused on piqueos (appetizers), and they did not disappoint . Antichuchos were fantastic - chicken skewers accompanied by fresh corn...More

Very good peruvian restaurant in Buenos Aires. The starters are great (the causas are specially good). The main dishes are huge - is you don’t eat that much it is best to share it with your friend. The price is great!

We found this place through trip advisor and were very pleased we did. On a Tuesday night when everything else was empty, this place was full. We had very tasty food, good service and there was a fun atmosphere.

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest.
