Description: Crizia sets a fresh, international and contemporary cuisine in charge of his cook and owner, Gabriel Oggero. The offer contains dishes inspired on international cookery as Mediterranean, Asian and Peruvian in addition to our typical Argentinian recipes, like grilled meats, Patagonian lamb and South Atlantic Ocean fish. It stands out the oyster bar which is supplied by an exclusive oyster bed in Patagonia region, considered the most important in the city by specialised critics. With a modern and clear design, the salon shows the open view kitchen and the glazed winery, where you can find more than 350 wine labels of all around the world and a storage of 3500 bottles. The main lounge has a soft and warm lighting with ambient music, chosen by a DJ, to create a cozy and pleasant atmosphere. It has comfortable and quite separated tables, tasty fresh flowers decors, a fireplace near the living room area and a huge bar with a great variety of spirits where our creative bartenders make fabulous cocktails. You can also find whiskies, grappas, single malts, cognacs and armagnacs. Art is all around Crizia. We have local painters artworks along our main salon, where you can combine the magic of paintings and the fantastic view through the picture window to Soria alley with it bohemian charming

“Beautiful setting, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2012

Walked over to Crizia from our hostel and from the outside you would never be able to tell that there was such a massive space inside. The decor was beautiful and it was an open air restaurant. The food was delicious, great steaks and wine. A bit on the pricey side but well worth it.

“The best steaks in Argentina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2012

The interior is posh, a bit overdesigned and quite dark, which can be a turn-off. But once the food is served, you want to stay there forever. Steaks and seafood are perfect, and so are the desserts. Definitely one of the best places in Palermo.

“Desapointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2012

I went with my wife last night to Crizia and left not satisfied at all. The fish I wanted to eat (tuna) wasn't available and the waiter minimized that offering another fish very different. I changed my choice for the plate of the day which was good, but only good. Kind of plate I should pay 40 to 50 pesos and I paied almost 100! My wife's choice the same: overvalued! The worst: besides the beautiful place and the nice music, the grill smoke were EVERYWHERE. I got all smoked in my hair and my clothes. Not fancy or amusing at all! Very disapointing!

“Wonderfull experience. Good food, great service good wine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2012

We went for dinner, the food was very good. The service impecable and the ambience was nice, fancy but subdued. A bit dark to my taste - but this can vary from person to person. The only hiccup was the lack of snazzy vegetarian main dishes. The appetizers were amazing, particularly the oysters and the baked camembert. In all, loved it!!
