Summary

La Casa de Adann offers a three course menu (appetizer, main course and dessert) along with a beverage for about US$8 (ARS$100). Now I warn you. They do charge a $38 “cubierto” so that the actual charge with food, beverages and the cover charge included is about US$10.50 (ARS$138).

Restaurant Review for Prix Fixe Lunch at La Casa de Adann - Buenos Aires

After having been impressed with a visit to La Casa de Adann for dinner early in the week I was anxious to try out the mid-day three course menu offering. Many restaurants are a bit like Cinderella and a few girlfriends I’ve spent time with. They look great in evening but not so good when the sun is shining brightly.

Not some much with La Casa de Adann. It has the type of décor that doesn’t rely on shadows and candlelight to create a nice ambiance. This place looks about the same mid-day as it does late at night.

In fact, most everything is the same at lunch as in the evening. The service ... the food ... everything. I even had the same waiter at lunch as I’d had a few nights earlier at dinner. That guy must never sleep.

On the Tuesday that I was there for lunch almost every table in the main dining room was full. La Casa de Adann offers a three course menu (appetizer, main course and dessert) along with a beverage for about US$8 (ARS$100). Now I warn you. They do charge a $38 “cubierto” so that the actual charge with food, beverages and the cover charge included is about US$10.50 (ARS$138).

I elected to have the Caesar salad for the opening course, a spaghetti with cherry tomatoes and basil for the main course and a little apple-pie-type dessert.

Argentine cooks seem to have difficulty with Caesar dressing. This one was acceptable but could have been better. And the salad had apparently been dressed a little too soon before delivery to the table, so the lettuce had become just slightly limp. But overall a descent rendition of one of the world’s most notable salads.

The spaghetti was cooked perfectly. Not too soft and not too firm. This was a very “light” sauce. Not much more than a dash of the pasta water and some olive oil and whatever natural juice had drained from the ripe cherry tomatoes that been halved and tossed with the spaghetti and the chopped fresh basil. This was a an enjoyable pasta dish. Ideal for a mid-day meal.

I concluded the meal with that little apple tart. Great flavor. I’m personally inclined toward the flaky crusts you find on Aunt Millie’s apple pie but no Aunt Millie was to be found in the kitchen today. So the European tart was an acceptable replacement.

I note that there was no noticeable difference in the portions, quality or any of the side offerings at lunch from what I’d seen at dinner. The same big basket of bread. They even offered a complimentary Campari aperitif as they do at night. At this price this is an extraordinarily good value.

Because of the Belgrano location this may not be a viable option for most tourists or residents living closer to downtown. But it would certainly be worth the taxi ride for a businessman taking a group of four to lunch. We do not take the geographical location into account in our ratings so this downside will not affect the rating you see below.
