El Mercado review Rate it

Loved, lauded, and occasionally criticised, this stunning restaurant tends to split opinions. But no one can deny that Philippe Starck was at his most inspired when he put El Mercado together. Behind all the beauty, an open kitchen dishes up traditional Argentinian food, from pates and squid-based entrees to rib-eye and tenderloin steaks, but it was the pink salmon with string fettuccini noodles in a vegetable-based, cream sauce that really impressed.
