Made a special trip to this restaurant based on the NY Times "36 Hours in Buenos Aires" article from last fall. Disappointing. The "atmosphere" is wonderful - could not have been more enchanting visually upon entering - I was very excited about the place. The...More

Great coffee off the beaten path. We were the only Englush speakers there. We loved the astmosphere and walked there taking in Congress Plaza on the way

We had dinner here after our hostel owner recommended it, but we were unimpressed. Our server ignored us for a long time while we watched her help the people at other tables. Not a good experience.

Good atmosphere, popular restaurant, although steak overcooked-rest of the food good! Gets incredibly busy in the evening after 9pm, but service quick. Staff do not speak English, so take a phrase book if you need to!
