Every night, Ameri proposes its outstanding dishes with varieties that include fresh fish, homemade pasta and regional specialties. After a traditional snack, we will taste the lamb roll with Malbec sauce and herbs, served with squashes au gratin. We will also have some chicken breast with citric sauce. For those who prefer fish, they may choose the pollack in white wine and green onion sauce, or pejerrey au gratin with rice timbale.
