Always great family service and delicious food. Going to Medio y Medio is an way decision. Delicious food and amiable waitstaff. This visit we had the pappardelle with squid ink. The desserts are fabulous too.

Good place. Nice, honest food. If the weather is nice, there is outdoor seating. Don't ask for the creme brulée though, not their best dish.

Entrar en Medio y Medio supone una experiencia singular. Parece uno adentrarse en los sabores y aromas de una cantina madrileña, o de una fonda parisina, con la banda sonora de un club de jazz neoyoquino, o un reducto de gafieira carioca. Medio y Medio es cocina de autor, fresca y casera. Es música en formato de Festival extendido en el tiempo. Un negocio de familia bajo la batuta de la chef Graciela Ferreres y la dirección artística de Leandro Quiroga Ferreres.Entre los artistas que han pasado por sus escenarios se podrán encontrar una gran diversidad de artistas como: Jaime Roos, Luis Alberto Spinetta, Hermeto Pascoal, Luis Salinas, Joao Bosco, Fito Páez, Skay Beilinson, Leny Andrade, Cuarteto de Nos, Liliana Herrero, Chico Cesar, Fabiana Cantilo, Fernando Cabrera, Paulinho Moska, entre tantos otros.
