After enjoying Aduana de Buenos Aires, it may be a nice idea to visit this restaurant. Argentine cuisine is what Chila boasts. Order perfectly cooked chili, octopus and hake. This place can be recommended for tasty soufflés, gelato and petit fours. Delicious malbec, cordial or champagne are worth a try here. This spot offers good cortado among its drinks.

There is a magnificent view from this restaurant. A number of guests mark that the staff is nice here. People say that the service is fabulous here. Chila offers you food at attractive prices. The divine decor and homey ambiance let visitors feel relaxed here. According to the global team of Frommer's traveling experts, this place is exceptional, therefore it holds the three-star rating.

Two words summarizes my Chila experience: bland and boring. In ways I can see why people rave about this place, it is pretentiously artsie/esthetic/cool level to many of your prototypical Michelin Star restaurants, but just like many do, got lost on just being "cool". Food wise, I found it to be very bland, almost tasteless, and boring meaning nothing new or a real showcase of ingredients and flavors to really represent Argentine food, as they pride themselves to do. I basically had twisted international dishes using Argentine produce and meats, for example, the tomatoe salad was just a vegan "caprese" salad that you can get anywhere in LA. The octopus a bland Mediterranean version of it with somewhat bland Tzatziki sauce. The river fish dish only thing with flavor was the tiny piece of brain, the chicken dish actually the fried skin was the only thing with flavor and enjoyable the rest was a mashed of white stuff.... and to end the worse part was the steak! It was the most bland and tough piece of meat I've had during my whole trip in Buenos Aires! To top that the chef send out some bones as a "treat" for me to magically find some meat somewhere... unless I'm a dog or look like one, there was nothing there for me to eat or pick or find and that was not a treat at all! Finally, the part that I really disliked and was disappointed, the wine paring. This restaurant needs a lot of work understanding and driving the concept of wine paring! Not once I was explained/told why this wine is being pair with the meal, I had to constantly ask and also ask about the wine itself, it felt so amateur! The person pouring the wine didn't seem to me like a somm or someone with the minimum wine knowledge! Overall, bland, boring food, so so service and just not worth the hype.
Chila was exceptional in service, never was my water glass empty and the staff was very friendly and genuinely proud/interested in the produce. I highly recommend adding the black hake. Delicious +++
One of the few innovative restaurants in Buenos Aires. Really interesting, modern menu, served by a hipster service. Definitely recommended, if you’re a foodie.
