Excellent restaurant in Buenos Aires. Very good service and good wine list. No super extensive but good. I and several of my friends tried the cook au vin, we really enyoyed. Others had pasta, and other had a brassed pig. All excelent. We had excellent Argentinian old wines brought by one of my frieds. See foto. I highly recommend this... More

Visited last night and enjoyed a fantastic meal. The ambience was excellent - high end restaurant. Served an amuse Bouche. The whole meal was superb from the Patagonian rainbow trout starter to the fillet mignion and the grapefruit reisling desert. We were the only tourists. Highly recommend

We ate here after a show and had a very good meal. The waiter was very attentive but overall we felt it was a bit pretentious and expensive.

The ambient was elegant yet decadent, service was fine and food below expectation. Wine list was comprehensive and affordable for the type of restaurant.

This is a very traditional restaurant, with a very creative menu that does not cross the line into the unnecessary experimental. All ingredients very fresh, adding a touch of modernity to classic international dishes. Service is attentive but old fashion, could benefit from some additional attention to detail.

This restaurant must be one of the best restaurants in Buenos Aires. Not very visible from outside, from Carlos Pellegrini, but inside a very fashionable place. We chose a three course menu and the corresponding wine menu, the main couse was a very delicious coq au vin and croute, and the wine was a Merlot Malbec 2014. All courses was... More

I chose Tomo 1 hoping for a view over the obelisk and avenue as we ate, but the blinds obscured the view. Shame, as other than that it's simply another smart hotel restaurant. The veggie options were limited and unimaginative - I had carrot soup and broccoli ravioli. There were not many wines by the glass. My dining companion thought... More

The food was delicious! It was the best meat I have had in Argentina so far. Everything is tasty. We had the "menu with options", meaning that you can choose between 3 options of entrée, main course and desert (we had: a salmon salad, meat and a pomelo/grapefruit desert. Everything paired with good wines. It's not cheap - around 100... More

The taste was magnificent. The service though not fully up to international standard. The baby calamari just taste awesome. The filet Mignon though ordered rare still came out close to medium. (Happens in most places) But yet taste was good. Would be happy to return any time.

The style of our cuisine can be characterised as “porteña gourmet”, even though there is no formal school of cuisine with that name. “Porteño” is the word we use in Spanish to refer to the inhabitants of the City of Buenos Aires. Nevertheless, the concept “porteño gourmet”, is a little tricky, specially for those who believe that something belongs to a tradition only if it has been actually created – as opposed to adapted - by its inhabitants, as if the French had invented cheese and steak aux frites, or the Spanish tortillas; or, indeed, as if it were possible to find steak aux frites, cheese and tortillas in Argentina prepared in exactly the same way as they are in any of those countries To fully grasp the concept of “porteño gourmet”, it might be a good idea to take a look out of a window in Buenos Aires. What do you see? Renaissance-style palazzos and almighty skyscrapers? Parisian hotels? Precarious ranchos and the country houses of the great estancias? Nothing of the kind! Buenos Aires is a city whose architecture has been influenced by many different styles which combine in a wholly unique way. Its identity lies both in the combination of traditions and in the way these traditions have been adapted. Some people call that style “chaos”; to us it is just Buenos Aires. At Tomo 1, we are engaged in exploring our traditions in ways that reflect our own habits and our own tastes, because, after all we are both porteños and gourmets.
