Beruti 2602, Recoleta, Buenos Aires 4821 3741

A long standing Spanish-Argentine restaurant that serves all things fresh, seafood, and Spanish delicacies like tortillas, stuffed peppers, and beautiful pieces of cured ham- all on a big silver platter of elegance. In the midst of cafes and restaurants this is one of those places that is uniquely Argentine-Recoleta-European; sit next to tables of old-money retirees and the white collar bunches, order a bottle of wine and sip through excellence- the food, crowd, and service.

Restaurant Critic

The subtlety. Located just a street down from the hectic Pueyrredon, the dark wood panel storefront with no huge sign, unnoticeably sits at the corner of Beruti; the beautiful dark blue canvas and the playful logo imprinted onto the window panes hinted at what was ahead as one pushed through the revolving big wooden door and greeted by vaulted ceiling, sexy leather couches, corner booths, white linen tables, sparkly wine glasses, and all-men service. If you are exasperatedly passionate about seafood and want a unique Argentine-European experience,  this is the place: alone, with friends, family, impress your date etc; just make sure you got your credit card, or a densely packed wallet to thoroughly enjoy what the menu has to spill.

Food Critic

Everything was solid. The ceviche with cilantro pesto kept my mouth humming; the medley of creamy mushroom, green pea puree, flaky piece of fish, seared bok-choy, and spoonfuls of baby mussels was something to be remembered by. The tortilla was cooked to creamy perfection; and even though the exterior of the salmon ravioli was a tad-tad-tough, the filling made up for it. Get the stuffed peppers, fresh bites of ham, and finish off with their decadent desserts- panqueque de manzana. Oh wait, did I mention fresh oysters and a bottle of tabasco? Good wine list, great service and love the bread sticks and dip. The bill? 450 with tip ($104) for two starters, two mains- not including wine. Solid North-American prices.

Pros

  • seafood: one of the best non-Peruvian-fusion sit-down place for a menu of oysters, squids, prawns and beautiful pieces of fish
  • ambiance: definitely one of the more memorable overall food experience in this city
  • tapas: spanish tortilla, oysters, ham, olives, peppers
  • the presentation of the dishes: bright colour and great side elements besides the seafood
  • breadsticks:)
  • service: a bit rigid but superb overall

Cons

  • expensive
