I went this past friday for the second time. I have to say the overall result was a dissapointment The service is awful, they ignore you from the moment you arrive, they don´t even turn their heads to look around. After that bad first impression, we asked if they could move us to a window table if people were leaving (this place is in a 21st. floor and has a good view of the city) and the waiter said there wasn´t any table leaving. 5´ after while we were still waiting to be attended, a couple of tables were free, so we tell the waiter we would like to move. Didn´t like he hadn´t the consideration to find out if there was a table that was going to be available soon nor that he didn´t register when that happend and come himself to offer to change, very unkind and unconsidered. As for the food, we ordered a starter, brie strudel and we were shocked at the sieze of the portion, considered that it cost almost like a main dish ($410) The quality of the brie cheese was not great, not too tasteful, very mild. We ordered two main dishes, goulash and risotto with braised deer. Main dishes were ok, average good, nothing remarkable. Desert in the other hand was poorly prepared, you could taste the gelatin they used for the mousse, very untastesful, not even sweet. Desert were $280 !!!! They charge like if they were serving first class gourmet food, and they only are mediocre. I had a little chat with the waiter after and he said that I was paying for the view and also I could considered it pricy if I was use to go to somewhere cheap and low (Actually he named an specific neighbourhood that I won´t repeat here because I consider it very discriminating). We had 3 glasses of wine and the total check was $2.000 !!!!! Nobody should go to this kind of places where they defend their poor mediocre food with the excuse of a good view. A rob really.

This restaurant is at the top of an office building and offers great views of the city. The building/restaurant itself is in need of a facelift. It is part of the German Club of Buenos Aires and the food was something of a fusion between German & Argentinian ingredients. We had a set menu as we were a large group. The food & service were great

Wonderful restaurant with stunning views of the city, to downtown (tango view, to the iconic Calle Corrientes) or to Puerto Madero. The food is great and the ambiance is superb. Great for a romantic dinner.

The restaurant is located on the 21st floor of Calle Corrientes 327, Buenos Aires City. The ladies sitting at the table next to us were served before, even though they came after us, in general I would have not paid attention to such a little detail except that I was extremely hungry. The only thing that made the goulash and the malfatti that we had, special was the price, really above average. The view is great because you can see The Obelisk and big part of the city from a point of privilege. If you don't mind paying more than normal for an average meal just to enjoy the view, this is the place.

This is a hidden gem located on 22nd floor of a business building in which one you have the German Culture Center. The view of the city is amazing, even if you are sitting in the middle of the restaurant. Friendly staff, attentive service, business atmosphere, reasonable wine list and satisfactory food with German accent. Mid-range prices.
