Generous servings, great service and good food.

Excellent meat dishes with good sized servings. Just off Ashford at Walgreens. Typical slow island service but great ambiance and generous drinks. Good steaks. Never had a bad meal here.

Expensive,not for the island and location. Monday the vino is half price, this IMO seals the deal. Best Argentine, no. Good and convenient yes.

Very regular restaurant with good food but not something extremely exept the price . Little bit noisy and the service should be improved as well. Good location, you can have a walk on the beach after the dinner. The high price doesn't justify the experience.

Buenos Ayres was recommended to us by the apartment manager of the place we rented, and it didn't disappoint! 3 of the 4 of us ordered the churrasco and were very happy with the choice. I would also recommend ordering the empanadas as an appetizer - the cheese was my personal favorite. Food was good, drinks were strong, and the... More

A traditional Argentine Steak House. No frills. Just meat and sides. Meats were a little pricey, but everything else was very reasonably priced. Pasta dishes were also excellent. Wine was less than 10usd a glass! Unheard of in Condado. I recommend this as a family outing. You can share pastas an meat dishes are also large. Enjoy.

I'm not sure if it's Puerto Rico's way however the diversity between price and quality is quite strange. This restaurant is located on the cross roads of a fairly busy road, with little passing public. So instead of people watching we were constrained to car watching and the sniffing if the accompanying exhaust fumes. Though these didn't have an adverse... More

Not sure if it's the Puerto Rican way or not as we just got here but so far service seemed slower than expected. Food was good. Caesar salad is tasty with skewers of fresh grilled chicken.

My family and I ate this week at Buenos Ayres. We were a fairly large group of 12. The waiter and assistant waiter were not able to manage the group properly and, the waiter, was disrespectful on several occasions. We kindly asked them to re-cook several meat portions because they had been improperly cooked (all the portions were significantly undercooked).... More
