What a fantastic evening! Highly recommended experience, ideally early to mid trip, or whenever you can squeeze it in. Our four Argentine guides were informative, engaging and personable. The evening began with a crisp Malbec concoction in a lovely bar/restaurant downstairs as we got to know our local hosts and other international guests. Then we were lead upstairs to sit at two tables for the wine drinking and empanada making portion. We learned critical info about the food and how to both recognize and ask for it as we like in Spanish. We had an interactive empanada making class in groups of 6+, learned about the what makes the best Argentine beef so delish and how best to order it in Spanish. Then we got an insiders understanding of Buenos Aires hand gestures (of which are many) and made and sampled our first mate and heavenly sweet alfajores cookies. Our best night ever and up with my top steaks to date!
Wonderfully fun and unique experience. Great way to make some new friends also.
This was easily the best steak we had during our entire holiday (and the only time I had a hangover). The guys made the whole thing so enjoyable and we especially enjoyed the bit about Argentine hand gestures. However, perhaps not advisable for anyone expecting a night of culture and tame stories..... The food was beyond this world and the location was beautiful. Very very upmarket and very very good value. Would definitely recommend.
Seriously! These guys are from other galaxy! Amazing experience in Buenos Aires - and yes: one of the best steaks I've had in my life. =)
We had a great time. It was definitely a good introduction to argentine cuisine on our first night in town. Highly recommend!
I really enjoyed the tour. It was definitely one of the highlights of the trip. The staff were extremely friendly and very knowledgeable. They went out of their way to ensure everyone participated and was having a good time. I am still however waiting for the recipes for the dishes we made. They were delicious.
I had an amazing time! I highly recommend this experience during the beginning of your trip at Argentina. You learn allot not just about the food but some cultural facts , at the same time have blast sharing stories with other tourists. I did this the last night of my trip but it was a great send off and the steak is amazing. You will have fun if you do this!
My fiancé and I visited the Argentine Experience the first night we arrived in Palermo. We r glad we did. We were truly introduced to the culture, food, wine and people of Argentina. They went way beyond my expectations in EVERY area. I especially loved the aroma tasting, and empenada making!!!!
This was a fabulous experience! Lots of fun making and eating empanadas and dinner was excellent! Steak literally melted in your mouth!
So much fun and the food was great. Met a nice group of tourists and had a wonderful evening making empanadas, Very yummy. Anxious to try them at home.
This was the most fun we had while in Buenos Aires. Truly an unforgettable and unique experience. Not traditional but we were kind of tired of the traditional "parilladas" and wanted something different. The steak was the best steak we had in our entire Uruguay and Argentina trip. Cooked perfectly and very tasty. Loved making our own empanadas and they were also delicious. Time does fly when you are having fun and the entire night was lots of fun. It is a very well run operation and of high quality. Juan made the best wine infused cocktails and we also got to meet other travelers from Germany, Canada and South Africa. We even kept partying with people in our group after the Argentinean experience was over. All I can tell you is to go hungry! Plenty of food and the wine kept flowing. An amazing night, I want to do it all over again!
This was an excellent experience from the beginning to the end. We were warmly met and this whole evening was perfectly organized to create interaction between the hosts as well as the other attendees. The food was plentiful and great - probably the best steak I've ever had! Wine was excellent and plentiful as well. Congratulations to the folks for this experience, and thank you for a wonderful time.
You've read all of the other reviews, and they are true. This is a great experience. The food was some of the best I've had in Buenos Aires. The people that were there to assist us while we were there, couldn't have been nicer people. Juan, makes some of the best mixed drinks you will ever have. And, it is fun!!!!
