While we've only scheduled out this far ahead, we do keep a waiting list for future dates - generally, though not always, we're open Wednesday through Saturday and some Sundays.

Thinking about a dinner party at home? Need a place for a welcome or goodbye evening? Perhaps a business dinner meeting outside of the usual hustle and bustle of a restaurant? Avoid all the work and cleanup and plan a private dinner with us here at Casa SaltShaker!

  • We seat a maximum of ten (10) guests at our shared table.

  • We ask people to come between 8:45 and 9:00 p.m. so that we can start by about 9:15 with everyone present - we, and your fellow guests, would appreciate it if you're on time.

  • Unless otherwise noted, our price for the five-course tasting menu with paired wines is AR$550 including a welcome cocktail, mineral water and coffee or tea. We do not offer an option to bring your own wine. We do ask for a deposit (via PayPal or credit card) to secure the reservation for which you'll receive an online link to pay. If you prefer to pay in cash we'll cancel the deposit on payment.

  • * Beginning with the dinner on December 10, our price will increase to AR$600.

  • ** For the four "holiday nights": Price will be AR$750. Dinners will follow our usual format, though we "up the game" with higher level wines in celebration. Just to be clear, as it always comes up, there's no special entertainment, nor a dance floor - it's just an opportunity to spend a holiday dinner with new friends.

  • Payment of the balance at the dinner in cash only - Argentine pesos, US dollars or euros are fine, and as close as you can to exact would be appreciated - if you prefer to pay via credit card we can arrange that in advance via an internet payment.

  • We have an outdoor garden where you or your guests can smoke, indoors is non-smoking.

  • We do keep a waiting list, so even if a night shows as full, let us know if you're interested.

  • Please read the Frequently Asked Questions page, at least the summary at the top - really, it's worthwhile to know what you're getting into.
