O’Xantar is worth the visit

When you visit Buenos Aires you need to experience the local atmosphere. O’Xantar is a cozy restaurant with excellent service. When entering the restaurant there is a warm welcome of the owners. The aperitif was already promising. Homemade and delicious. And this was just the aperitif. The line continued in all other dishes.

We took one of the suggestions: lamb with a sauce of ginger and traditional beer. The other option was “Bife the Chorizo à la O’Xantar”.
