The food was good here but not as good as Elena, also on property. And not near as good as Fogon Asado. A little more casual and would be good with kids.

We had an amazing dinner at this new style Parilla. Great atmosphere with the glass restaurant and the open fires open kitchen. The Asado was Sensational, the Ribeye was perfectly executed and the wine list was really good. Great Service as well.

I had the extreme misfortune to eat a Sunday Brunch in March 2020. I have never eaten a meal here before and I have lived over 10 years in Buenos Aires, and I am well familiar with good Argentine meat. This was the worst of...the worst. The thing which annoyed me the most was the pricing by Buenos Aires standards . Approximately 90 US $ for 2 people including taxes. This could have bought me 2 fantastic meals else where in Buenos Aires. The wine was included and was being served scalding HOT in heat of Buenos Aires and also it was the worst Malbec they could find. They could have easily done a better job by providing a better wine to accompany the meat. The desert was extremely bad as well. I am a frequent meat eater in Buenos Aires, And I do NOT recommend this restaurant. The service was mediocre as well. No coffee or tea offered after the meal ( as part of the brunch) Positives :- 1. Drinking water included in the brunch price. 2. Excellent ambience.More

I used to go every month to this brunch. Now it was more than a year since last time. The major change was that The alcohol used to be unlimited... now it’s 1 bottle per person and they are very strict about it. This is...a HUGE turn off of you compare price with the hotel Alvear brunch, prices are the same but Alvear still offers free booze. They change some Food for similar options but cheaper, so it’s kind of a down grade version of what it used to be. It’s a nice brunch though.More

We stumbled across this terrace restaurant by the pool and it is like an oasis in the middle of bustling Buenos Aires. Tucked away on the first floor, it very calm and a nice breeze. The food and staff are excellent and it is a...welcome break if you are wandering around Buenos Aires for the day. We tried to go back for dinner on a subsequent day and were disappointed to find it close fin the evenings.More

I once in a lifetime meal. We went for Sunday brunch. They offer a flat-fee '4 course' meal. It really should be like an '8 course' meal based on the food you receive. Overall, between the 2 of us, we had a cheese board, 2-3...other starters, we had 4 meat items each, 3 salads, 8 desserts, bread basket, a few side vegetables, and likely a couple other items that I don't remember. It was as staggering as it sounds. (We didn't clean most of our plates.) I tried offal meats for the first time (3 of them). I actually liked them. If you're going to try them, I can't think of a better choice than the four seasons! We enjoyed ourselves. Service was nice, and a fun atmosphere. You essentially sample the entire menu. They also have alcohol pairings, but because it was an election day, they couldn't serve alcohol. If you don't want to sample the entire menu, then I'd recommend just getting the short rib and the DD pancake.More

Amazing food in the heart of the city. Service was extremely friendly and professional and the staff spoke excellent English which was appreciated. I had the garlic prawns to start then the New York strip steak with malbec butter cooked rare - both were cooked...to perfection - probably the best steak I've had! Wine was also very good. Definitely recommended for a lovely evening meal!More

I was staying at the Four Seasons for 2 weeks and sadly only got around to visiting this gem on my last day, having spent much of my stay going to the other more 'prominent' restaurants in Buenos Aires. We went for lunch and were...delighted by the knowledgeable and motivated staff who had a genuine passion for the food, wine and cocktails they were serving. Because there were so many great things on the menu we decided to share a few starters and mains, i particularly recommend the beef sweetmeats and the sous vide cooked flank steak was outstanding. We also greatly enjoyed the ravioli stuffed with 5 hour stewed t bone steak. Definitely a must visit if you are looking for serious gourmet food.More

Took an hour to get a ribeye medium rare. When I sent it back because it was overcooked it took an additional 20minutes to get a new one. In the meanwhile they left the sides on the table to get cold. New steak came out...and had barely touched the grill. Completely rare. Friend’s food sucked too.More

Leonandro our waiter was an absolute legend. So passionate, knowledgeable, sweet and kind. He was the perfect host. (All staff we came across we're so pleasant!!) We hadn't reserved so sat outside with blankets which was lovely. The food was beautiful, creative and so tasty....There were vegan options for me and one of the best steaks ever for my husband. We came for a special occasion and the evening did feel very special. We had bread, a starter, mains and a side plus theee drinks and the bill was P2500 (approx £50.) Had the best time and highly recommend - and wow what a beautiful hotel!!! Gracias Leonadro!! : )More
