Food and ambience

The territory is, in fact, one of the biggest playfields of CHILA's cuisine, and over the years the restaurant has rather inadvertently created a unique map of Argentina's regions with each of Pedro Bargero's menus or chapters. This map takes the country for its climates rather than its geographical boundaries, and allows the earth, the minerals, the water, the plants and the proteins to enter the menus and dishes in new flavor compositions that create a sort of biome, one that goes beyond the food and becomes a whole with the wine, the service, the flatware and the music. In that ecosystem, an almond is as valuable as the most expensive caviar, and the sea and mountain can have the closest

I have been to many of the top restaurants in BsAs and so far, this is my favorite in terms of food. We did the tasting menu and I loved every single dish. The presentation from the beginning was impeccable --- they bring out a...box you have to open and there is a menu and a little snack. Then the fun begins....from cassava chip with beef tartare to trout sous-vide to scallop in green sauce. Wow! What I was most impressed by was how good the combination of flavors were....some I would never have thought of. For example, the raw oyster had melon oil and a little tiny melon ball, then there was grilled fresh anchovy filet with carrot sauce, and the trout sous-vide came with a strawberry ketchup. The flavors! The textures! All perfect! Definitely one of my favorite tasting menus in BsAs.More

Sophisticated fusion cuisine. Hard to pinpoint a style. Looks like European food, with Asian and Peruvian influence, with very local ingredients from different places of Argentina. A-la-carte and fixed steps-menu available. High quality drinks. Worth trying as many dishes as possible.

The service was perfect. Our special wishes were accomodated without any problems. The food itself was very good and very creative and rather different than the steak you get everywhere else in Argentina.
