We went following a recommendation from a local friend and we were enchanted by this place. Located on a quaint street in San Telmo with other great restaurants with outside seating.
The menu is very creative and outside of the box, and on top of it Vegetarian.

I've never given a restaurant a TERRIBLE review to any place (especially in Latin America where I've been very pleasantly surprised) but Hierbabuena's deserve it. I am vegan and really wanted to love this place but not only are the prices very high but watch your bill for extra charges not mentioned anywhere else (Ex: $80 per person for using their plates/cutlery). It must be illegal to do this (and maybe reserver for foreigners). Waited 90 minutes for lunch (a salad) when only two other customers were eating and I pre-mentioned that I only had an hour to be away from work. If you ask for side condiments (like salsa tomate) expect your meal to be complete before it arrives (another example my soy milk arrived about thirty minutes after coffee was already finished). The service staff must be paid and treated badly by management because they generally are extremely aggressive, unhelpful, angry, and rude for such an expensive restaurant. Toilets were shamefully dirty (men's room) considering the prices charged and I saw at least one employee use it without washing hands. Not sure what else to say -- recommend you avoid this place.

I've been here a couple of times now. Great healthy food and shakes, lots of vegetarian options. It is not cheap though.

In San Telmo there’s a street called Caseros where you will find in two blocks almost the best Parillas and Organic restaurants. One of this is Hierbabuena. A magical place with local and organic food as well as a organic store besides that offers delicious and fresh products.
100% recommended.

Arrived too late for breakfast and brunch is not available on Wednesday but ordered off the menu for a delicious early lunch. Three very diffetent dishes (avocado gnocchi, beet carpaccio and pollo sandwich) but all were fresh, tasty and well presented. Coffee was also very good.
