Olsen Buenos Aires

Olsen is a sister restaurant to Casa Cruz and Tegui. From it’s name you can guess it has a Swedish feel. Apart from being difficult to get to I really did not find anything Swedish about the place.
This was my second visit and I hoped I would enjoy it more than the first. Things did not get off to a good start. We only accept Visa was the first thing I was told after making the reservation. I did explain that people who use Amex traditionally spend more dosh but this fell on deaf ears.
The restaurant is located in a more remote part of Palermo Soho but when you get there the garden entrance is stunning.


Palermo was an area of Buenos Aires that housed many car shops. Once again this restaurant seems to have used this type of venue to produce a stunning room. It is a pity they did not invest in some stunning furniture as the stuff they have looked as if it came from a car boot sale of old diners stuff. The acoustics are pretty bad as well but to fix that would take a real hefty investment.

The food was good but nothing to write home about and quite expensive for Buenos Aires

I personally will not be rushing back but if you want to yearn for that little bit of Sweden by sitting in a really cool outside patio while drinking Absolut vodka then this may be the place for you
