Guia Oleo reviews:
We've been to this puerta cerrada before, extremely good food, the chef is wonderful. If you can't make this event do go another time. They also allow bottles to brought along if you wish to bring your own wine, or did when our group went...
How many people are expected to attend this event? And do you all have dinner events frequently? I've been in BA for 6 months now, but am a newcomer to baexpats. I'm defenitely interested in going if it's going to be a good turnout.

We're new as well and very interested in coming to meet lots of other expats. One thread said "limited' seating. What is the limit? Usually, the more the merrier!
Hi guys I was at a dinner there last week and it was excellent and the food yummy . There will be seating for 20 people only and we have 11 bookings. There are 9 seats left .The dinners are always a great mix of older and younger expats and they are always lively affairs.

Look forward to seeing you all there.
Tell you what, count me in! Is there anything else I should do to make my reservation? And is there anyone I should reference once I arrive at the restaurant?

Look forward to seeing you guys there!

Please add two more diners to the list. Sil and I look forward to our first expat get-together.

I've been 3 times and even had my birthday party this last October. (I rented out the joint.) The food is amazing. And I'm sending my former neighbor in the States and her two friends there when they come through town.

I do think that "I'll go if there are going to be a lot of people" thing is kind of funny, because if all of those groups go, then not only will there "be a lot of people", but it will probably sell out. But if all of them don't, then it might not quite fill up. Just funny logic. It's kind of like needing a DNI to get a bank account, but needing a bank account to get a DNI... but not exactly.

Room for 1 more person,count me in for dinner March 4th
Sounds Great!
