The Argentine Experience was great food and great fun. Katrina was our host, and she welcomed us at the door. She was humorous and entertaining, while giving us lots of information about Argentinian dining, food, drink and culture. The venue was picturesque and comfortable. Making empanadas was a great way to start off the evening, as we had lively competition to execute the best looking creation! Our fellow diners were friendly and interesting. Oh, yes, and the food was excellent! We were full of steak and all the sides, including generous wine pairings and 3 desserts. It was a wonderful way to spend our first evening in Buenos Aires.

Fun experience, it was enjoyable but a bit pricey for what you get. As far as atmosphere it was missing some ambiance and food portions were smaller than I would have liked. The wines were good but had to ask for refills. In Argentina it is a lot to spend almost $100 USD per person so I guess I just expected more for my money. That being said, we did have a good time.

The whole experience was just …perfect!! We opted for the cocktail experience before hand which was only $10 more per person but totally worth it!! We had a little bartending class with Pietro who was just absolutely the cutest. So funny and charming!!

From there we went upstairs to the dining room and the rest of the guests joined us. From the amuse bouche and empanada making to the main course and dessert, we just had the best time. It helped our table mates were all so friendly and talkative …having unlimited wine didn’t hurt either.

I definitely recommend this experience. 1000% would do it again if I ever find myself back in Argentina!!

This was an absolutely incredible way to end our time in Buenos Aires! Camila and Manu were excellent dinner guides who offered a combination of humor and knowledge throughout the night. The atmosphere is incredibly welcoming, allowing you to meet people from all over the world. The food is DELICIOUS, particularly the empanadas, tapas, and steak. I highly recommend this experience!! You will not be disappointed.

Excellent experience to get a taste of Argentinian food and meet new people. Hosts are great! I am allergic to dairy and they provided ingredients and dishes dairy free. Food is also great. I totally recommend this activity.

What a great idea this is! We had a fantastic time with empanada making and fun all around. The food was fantastic, and the staff were all young people with loads of personality. The wines were high quality and they never stopped coming all night. Typical Argentinian food was served. All in all and great night out!

What an Experience. The host (Paola) doesn’t only speak 5 languages she is funny and good! Gives you a relaxing high quality dinner and unique in his kind. I was lucky to have Brazilian and American table guests and we had a wonderful night. Perfect in balance what you may ‘cook’ yourself and what they do for you. By cook I mean fixing a cocktail, empanada and a mate (tea). This was in iguazu by far the best diner and night. Thank you team Argentina experience.

My daughter and I can't rave enough about The Argentine Experience. We kicked off our evening with the add-on of a very fun mixology class (wine cocktails!) before joining the full group for empanada making, delicious Argentine steak, even more food, wine, and yerba mate. It was a great way to socialize with others from all over the world, too. Our only regret is that we didn't get the recipe for the dulce de leche dessert! We'll recommend this to anyone heading to Buenos Aires; it is an exceptionally wonderful way to spend an evening.

Such an amazing experience! Went with a group of 8 friends, and I highly recommend doing the full experience. I can't say enough about how much fun we had. Also, it was a 5 hour experience... not 2.5 hours. Well worth the money. The drinks, the food, the instructions, the staff, all of it was perfect and worth every minute and every dollar.

What a fun night! I highly recommend the cocktail hour before the dinner. We sampled three wine based cocktails then chose our favorite to have and make. Our mixologist was informative and fun. Dinner was a delightful experience conversing with people from around the world while making empanadas and enjoying a leisurely Argentine meal! Don’t hesitate to book this!
