Wine bar and restaurant
Sarmiento 1594. Buenos Aires
Midrange restaurant exuding elegance and sophistication. Excellent food. My favourite restaurant in Buenos Aires currently.

Mediterranean style salad
Grilled chicken with a hint of orange with pesto
Apple pie ( hot ) with ice cream
A glass of malbec from Mendoza

Those who wish to light up a Habano cigar after this delicious dinner may do so.
Highly recommended.
