A fantastic meal. Two of us had the 5 course degustation, which was fantastically inventive. The other food was also top notch. Head Chef Max, who also serves the food, is a great guy. When we couldn't pay by credit card, he suggested we pop by with the cash the next day. A real highlight of a fantastic couple of... More

The food was a delightful change from the meat infused Argentine cuisine. As the main dish we had salad that was inventive and delicious. The chef is also your waiter! It is only open at night but during the day cooking classes are held.

In fact, the restaurant is somehow part of a private home. The food was one of the best we had in Argentina. Plus, it is a nice concept... More

My wife and I ate here in September and it stands out in my mind as perhaps one of the 5 best meals I've had in my life, and we've visited 34 countries. This is a cooking school, so the chef/owner/professor takes a very hands on approach. He served as our greeter, waiter and chef throughout the evening. In the... More
