Phenomenal. Very creative food and always a surprise. The wine pairing introduced us to new and great wines. Definitely got our money's worth.
A total let down, so much for the hype. I will call it a plating and food fragility flop. The ambience and decor is bad, compared to other restaurants of this caliber, and makes you ask yourself what are you doing there. The restrooms are just disgusting. Insects flying hovering over the toilet, wood veneers in the sink base unglued, features broken, unhygienic. Ugh! The food was presented sometimes over small stones. Why? is still a mystery. The soup, that was otherwise very good, had a hot stone inside (to keep the temperature?) that made eating the solid contents and trying to spoon the liquid a very complicated and frustrating experience. The appetizers, that were -again- good, are made so fragile that will totally crumble at any attempt to grab them (it is finger food), you will ask yourself if that day your fingers are disobeying you, but looking around you will see many persons struggling with the same issues. And served again on stones that are as unnecessary as they are cumbersome. The "main" courses were uninspired. Many -again- not at all remarkable deserts followed with the classic flavors you may expect in a lesser venue, if flamboyantly produced. Of all the top notch restaurants we went in Argentina (Papagayo in Cordoba, Roux and Darío Gualtieri in Buenos Aires, among others) this was unequivocally at the very bottom, with the biggest price tag. The service was always correct, but lacked warmth and was stiff and sometimes distant. Or may be they are tired of repeating the same lines over and over again. The information conveyed ranged from obvious to shallow to irrelevant. The place is full mainly of tourists (like us), since the prices are prohibitive for average locals. With that kind of income in a depressed economy, you think the owner/s could bother with, for example, fixing the dangling power outlet in the kitchen (there for all to see from the main room) or at least clean and repair those utterly disgusting restrooms. Again, at this level there is no bad food, but the whole experience is well bellow what you may enjoy somewhere else. Never back to this one, no matter the hype.
Best meal I had in BA on our most recent trip. We did a few fine dining dinners, and Aramburu was definitely the best one, even compared to other places with similar pricing. We had the 18-course tasting menu and they were all well prepared and presented. The staff was very attentive and accommodating with preferences and restrictions (we also went to places that didn't exactly take "lactose intolerance" right). The place almost feels like a speakeasy, and we almost walked right past it without realizing. You have to ring a bell to enter. It's a small and intimate space. We went on Nov 30, and I'm pretty sure I saw Wolf Blitzer sitting right behind us (he was facing the other way, but I saw his face in the mirror; it was quite a surreal experience). Probably there for the G20. From the creative veggie and grain chips on a coral to the generous portion of oyster, to Asian-inspired buns, to the quail with its little foot sticking out, and to the steak and sorbet to finish, it was easily the best dinner I had in BA. I'd love to go back next time I'm in town.
