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
* 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
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.
