El Baqueano review 2 Users say 5/5 Rate it

Despite rave reviews from food critics from around the world (and from director Francis Ford Coppola), this restaurant remains something of a hidden secret on the BA gastronomic scene. Why? Possibly because chef and owner Fernando Rivarola has ignored the obvious choice of beef and instead filled his menu with creative dishes prepared from Argentina's most exotic fauna: yacare (caiman) comes spiked on a kebab stick; llama in slivers of carpaccio; and Patagonian lamb is wrapped up tight in pastry.
