Chef Dan and his team have a jewel in Recoleta. We were greeted with a welcome cocktail in his living room and promptly introduced to the other guests that would be joining us on our culinary adventure that evening. I have seen lots of Puertas Ceradas take the shape of a full on restaurant, this still has the fun feel... More

This was truly a unique experience. I can't remember how I found it, but I am glad I did. To have dinner in someone's home and it be a meal made up of whatever the chef feels inspired by is truly something special. I was traveling by myself and thought this would be a great night - who knows who... More

The food was delicious and chef Dan was a great host. You get 5 courses along with wine pairing and the food is delicious. This is not your typical restaurant – this is a dinner hosted with 10 people. I enjoyed the meal, and it was interesting to meet new people, however the people at the table dictate your experience...

This was a great dining experience. I do not eat red meat which I had told them before we went over to their house. They were very willing to make accommodations in the 5 course meal they prepared which was absolutely delicious. Dan served us a different Argentine wine with every course which was well paired with the food. There... More

This was our first trip to Buenos Aires and my husband and I decided to give the "puerta cerrada" concept a try on one of our nights there. We were so happy we did. Dan is an amazing chef & we loved every single one of our dishes and wine pairings. Everything was so beautifully presented and thought out. He... More

It doesn't get better than this! Dan and Henry serve a highly enjoyable and delicious five course gourmet meal, each course unique and well paired with an Argentine wine--all served in a very comfortable private home setting. The other dinner guests were very friendly and interesting, and we got on splendidly. Dan was always on hand to explain our courses... More

An amazing night from start to finish....a beautiful cocktail to start your night while everyone becomes acquainted. Followed by 5 courses of generous servings of beautiful food, each course paired with a local wine, and each more delicious than the last. Coffee to finish the night. You are well looked after all night, the service is attentive but not invasive.... More

Our first course, after an aperitif, was a feta cheese biscuit. Now, I have never before had great things to say about a biscuit, but this was delicious! I asked our chef/host if the rest of the courses were going to be this good, and he said "I hope so". The rest of the courses weren't as good, they just... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of dining at Casa Saltshaker on the last night of our honeymoon through Chile and Argentina, and we were so pleased we did. We had done some research before we arrived and made reservations months in advance, so we knew what to expect from the closed door restaurant experience (the owner - Dan... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
