I personally prefer modest-sized portions, but I can't recall Pura Tierra ever over-filling the plate.I could be a lot more forgiving if they didn't price themselves out of forgiveness. They've put themselves at the top end of BA restaurants and at the top consistency in quality should be superb.
The portions were far too large. Unsalted tartare is unforgivable even for an off night. Dried out and/or over set gelled bell pepper juice was molded into little cylinders like used tampons and served in two different dishes on the same menu. The ceviche seriously lacked acidity and again, salt. The more I remember the sourer my opinion gets.
Beautiful setting though and great service.
Argentine food is almost invariably oversalted, so I would never complain about lack of NaCl.
I've always considered their prices modest for the caliber of the food.
