NileGuide Expert tip:
Reservations are essential, and well ahead of time as the limited seating fills quickly.
Casa Felix is a popular 'puerta cerrada' or closed-door restaurant, one of many such private eateries in BA. Guests pay a flat fee for a five-course tasting menu in the company of 11 other diners, who are encouraged to socialize during the meal in the leafy patio of the lovely home of owners Diego Felix and Sanra Ritten. A far cry from the typical Buenos Aires eating experience, chef Felix steers clear of the standard local stick-to-your-bones fare in favor of fish-based and vegetarian dishes, complemented with a variety of spices and herbs from around Latin America and a different wine for each course. Reserve your spot well ahead as the tables fill quickly.
