The best high-end Spanish restaurant in the city, Recoleta’s Oviedo offers professional service, a refined and relaxed setting (with soft lights and contemporary art on display) and the freshest fish–brought in up to twice a day. If chef  Martín Rebaudino can't get the fish fresh enough to meet his high standards, he'll take it off the day's menu. Start with Galician octopus or stuffed piquillo peppers. Entrées range from hake in mushroom sauce and sea bass with pumpkin gnocchi to suckling pig and lamb from Patagonia. It’s sophisticated Iberian cuisine, with delicate presentations and excellent-quality ingredients. There are three wine lists, one highlighting Argentine wine, another mid-range imported wines (rare in Argentina), and a third top-end list with bottles starting at A$500.
