Casa SaltShaker
Food. Wine. Conversation. New Friends.

Buenos Aires, Argentina

 

Welcome to Casa SaltShaker. We offer a unique dining experience, sharing a table with other guests at our home in Barrio Norte. The setting is casual and the conversation lively. Our food is eclectic home cooking exploring Andean and Mediterranean cuisines. It's all about meeting new friends over good food and wine. A truly "don't miss" experience for both travelers and locals!

While we've only scheduled out this far ahead, let us know about future dates you're interested in and we'll consider those as we plan our schedule.

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 (US$70/50) 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 (in dollars 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.

  • 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 - really, it's worthwhile to know what you're getting into.
