In the refurbished 300-year-old former home of the Royal College of Music, Argentine chef Fernando Trocca (and partner Tato Giovannoni) will open a “re-imagining" of the Buenos Aires open-fire restaurant of the same name.
Harden's survey result
Everyone “loves the décor” of this import from Buenos Aires, overseen by star Latino chef, Fernando Trocca: the glamorous makeover of a 300-year-old Soho building that once housed the London College of Music, complete with chandeliers, open kitchen and fire pit! Staff are “convivial” too and “the downstairs bar (Abajo) really helps round off an evening”. The vibrant South American food? Marina O’Loughlin in The Sunday Times was not impressed, but some diners had their “best meal of the year” here, and even a reporter who found it “ever so slightly underwhelming” said “but it feels like it could really gain traction!”
Fernando Trocca (a star Latino chef) has imported the colour and tastes of Buenos Aires to this 120-seat, summer 2021 newcomer, and breathless, early online reports say the room is absolutey knock-out, with its glam chandeliers, and the high drama of its central open kitchen and fire pit. It occupies a Soho site of historical interest, too – the concert hall inside the 300-year-old building that once was the HQ of the Royal College of Music (currently emerging from being redeveloped). Downstairs is a moody, nightclubby bar, Abajo, from Renato Giovannoni, who is involved with one of BA’s top bars: Floreria Atlantico.
For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"A busy, buzzy restaurant with an excellent fixed price menu which suited us perfectly for a weekend lunch."
"Great take on Argentinian cuisine with asado firing up the back of the restaurant (warm seats in the vicinity). Excellent set lunch. Perhaps still finding its mojo in terms of atmosphere "
