Nice place in this busy city and street. Quiet, clean and good service. Safe choice by European standard. The food was great both Continental and Mexican cuisine. The prices where well above average.

We ate upstairs with a group of business colleagues for our first night in town. Our host ordered several appetizers and entrees for us to share, and they were all delicious. The sangria was welcome after a long travel day! The atmosphere was sophisticated without being stuffy. We will be back!

From there went on to a very fresh and taseful salad and finished of the meal with a great steak. The steak was easily compared to anything you... More

I been here several times, most of them, due my customers want to try an argentinian cut (and pricey), but... as I mention this place apply the quote: " your reputation can give you a nation", As soon as you get in the hostes is kind of rude, since they have a bunch of people and almost response: "if you...

The meat is good. But overpriced. Otherwise, a typical Argentine restaurant, though Cambalache is a little more stuffy than most. I prefer a more relaxed Argentine restaurant.

I am a meat lover so I've had my share of steakhouses and churrasquerias. This was not the first time I visited Cambalache, but i will be the last. We had lunch here with my parents (so 4 adults + 2 small kids) and with limited alcohol (couple of beers + couple of vodkas) and only 2 steak cuts (1.2... More

The atmosphere is very nice, the service on the high of the restaurant. We have chosen meat and it was really good and the price not excessive for the place. The wine card has a lot of good proposals for a good price for value. We certainly will go back to experience the great meat!

The steaks were done exactly to order and the sizes of the meals were very good. We ordered the Irish Coffees which were made by Alfonso, at our table, all... More
