Fodor's Review

"Cavernous" may be the first word that comes to mind upon entering this multilevel concrete-and-metal space with a backlit bar taking up an entire wall, an open kitchen dominating the rear, and a hulking glass wine cave smack in the center of the dining area. Sucre was and is the cutting edge of cuisine in Bajo Belgrano, and though it's off the beaten path, it's well worth the trip. Enjoy the delicious and creative appetizers, but save room for a main course straight off the wood-fired grill: spit-roasted bondiola (pork shoulder) and melt-in-your-mouth Patagonian lamb are among the stars, but any meat or fish coming off the parrilla is going to be a winner and be accompanied by something far more creative than the ubiquitous french fry guarnición. Locals and tourists alike fill the room, and with no soft surfaces it can get loud.

Tourist trap

We went here on a Friday night and it appears to have become a complete tourist trap - almost no Spanish being spoken, most customers were English or American tourists, and the service was appalling. I think the real locals have moved on from here. Its true that it looks stunning, but it took us four hours to receive a three course meal and a few bottles of wine. When items were no longer on the menu, we were only informed when they didn't turn

up (including dishes, and bottles of wine) and any request had at least a 20 minute turn around. When it did turn up the food was very good. But its not worth the wait. Go here at your peril, or only mid-week, or when you have lots of time and patience.
