Really enjoyed it!

This place was recommended by a local, I wasn't sure at first, to have a steak from an Argentinian restaurant whilst in Mexico? But I thought to give it a try. I am very glad I did, the name definitely suits the place, the food was great and the service was excellent, the wine was lovely too and it... read more

We've been eating here for many, many years and it's always consistently good. The steaks are among the best in Playa (but don't come here looking for an American Cowboy Cut, these all average 300g) and my wife has quickly become a fan of the Seafood Pasta added to the menu in recent years. Pizzas are pretty solid is there... More

I came few times to eat, the food always was great, specially the meat!!! Only one thing missing for me to give it a 5* and that's the ambient, it should be more live and the music a bit louder.

We came here and ordered some pizza we ordered the 1/4 thinking it was maybe 2 pieces of pizza but when we got it, it was more like a medium pizza which was more for like 2 people. It was very delicous pizza and they make really good Sangrias too. Would definately eat there again when we travel back next... More

Service is terrible! Incredibly slow. 25 minutes just to get drinks, then a whole hour to get the food. I don't know why people are lining up here, the food was not out of the ordinary. It took so long to get the bill in the end, I had lots of time to write this glowing review. Overall, bad experience,... More

I had one of the single best steaks I've ever had at this place. They are an argentinean restaurant right on 5th. Might be a bit pricey for mexican standards but for international rates it's not bad at all. Their grilled vegetables salad is also really good.

Our group of four was strolling Fith Ave last Monday evening and decided to drop in El 10 Restaurant for dinner. Having been there in past years we knew it would be a nice meal. Nothing too fancy but good. The restaurant has a sister restaurant next door that is a sea food place so you can order off either... More

The first and the only time I write feedback on restaurant. Besides their great location in the 5th avenue their is nothing positive with this restaurant. Very Expensive restaurant for nothing. You need to know how to make a steak and they just don't know, It was burned outside and totaly rare inside. My wife didn't eat nothing and the... More
