Beware, this is expensive for being in Mexico, but the food is still worth it if you're looking for something safe. It's not a gourmet meal, but it's still good. The empanadas are as good as the ones you get in Argentina.

Ask for a table at the end of the hall and enjoy the place while you eat an outstanding seafood with great wines, at reasonable prices. Do not leave before exploring the tuna tostadas or the octopus tacos. Top curse: grilled yellow fin tuna ! That is just out of this world !!! Great service and plenty of smiles are... More

The Recova offered nothing fantastic but it is all there for a nice meal. The steaks are very good and the atmosphere is good to spend a nice afternoon.

Had a wonderful tasting meal paired up with great service. Unfortunately, my loved one and I got food poisoned a few hours after leaving the restaurant and the next 24 hours were a bad experience. We had oysters Rockefeller and we know that bad handling even of a fresh mollusk can yield to intoxication. This is something that can happen... More

My wife and I were tired of traditional foods and we were in search of true innovation and creativity. Arriving at the plaza near El Centro we stumbled across La Recova. WOW!

The absolutely perfect steaks were accompanied by a delicious salad. We added the grilled vegetables which were simply the best. There is a range of what you can order here. You could end up spending quite a bit but we chose simple/straight forward dinners and were very pleased. The service was excellent. The manager even took time to introduce himself.

Actually a Mexican version of Argentinian food. Dinner was very good, but empanadas were not as good as Argentina's, also no lomo on the menu, but quite extensive list of steaks, ribeye. Great appetizers - try the La Recova beef broth, and main and side dishes. Very good wine list, go for the Mexican wine now, you can have malbecs... More

La Recova Argentinean Steak House The rib-eye (bife de chorizo) was tough as an old boot, and about as flavorful. The French fries (Papas Frances; give me a break) at 99 pesos were a colossal waste of money --- frozen, undersalted [btw, there is no salt on the table] and miserable. The provencale tomato was a cooked watery blob of... More

We have visited twice on this vacation. Food is well prepared and delicious. The wild boar was wonderful but we loved the pasta and lobster dish. Add a glass of RIFF white wine from South Africa and you have a winning evening on a great patio. Very good service as well.
