Fodor's Review

When it opened, Casa Cruz was the cutting edge restaurant in Buenos Aires and nobody came close to producing the quality of creative, eclectic dishes that chef Germán Martitegui was putting out. In recent years his attention moved to his new flagship restaurant, Tegui, and Casa Cruz lagged behind. This year he and his partners sold the restaurant to another group who promptly turned it into a high-end, straightforward steakhouse. It's good meat, but there are better choices in the area at more reasonable prices.

Casa Cruz Review

Overrated. Sleek, sexy surroundings and fancy food presentation, but the flavors of the dishes were lacking. Our meal began with an amuse bouche of a chilled melon sabayon which was slightly bitter, as if the melons used were underripe. I chose a bruleed foie gras as my first course, which arrived in a giant portion. The foie was really cold underneath, which detracted from the yummy melt-in-your-mouth taste I expect from foie gras. The lamb loin

I ordered arrived slightly overcooked, was dry. It also had the skin membrane still on, which I thought was odd but perhaps the way it was intended to be served. My husband had the goat which was also tender, but somewhat dry and bland. It's not a horrible meal, but it's not the best one of this type to be had in this city (for that, I'd recommend Chila in Puerto Madera, which blows Casa Cruz out of the water). The service was top notch, and the staff very friendly. Our four course meal for two plus an amazing bottle of wine came out to about US$100, which isn't bad for the type of restaurant Casa Cruz strives to be. I'd recommend this restaurant more for the ambience than the food, and even then you're going to find yourself among more tourists than the sexy Portenos the guides tell you you're going to find there. I wouldn't call it a "must do," but still a worthwhile experience.
