Great atmosphere, friendly staff, a warm welcome and great food. We had the chicken & mushroom empanadas, some sirloin steak and cannelloni. The food was delicious, especially amazing steak combined with some great Malbec. I'd definitely recommend, the general manager (Fernando - great voice!) made us feel like at home.

Really good starter, steak and wine deal for 14.95 PP which is really good value for the size of the steak and sides - really filling, very friendly service, nice outside area and a family-run feel to the interior. House sauce for the steak was also great. Will definitely be back!

We found this restaurant by accident after initially going to walk past it to go to the pub, but have fallen for it instantly and will be going back very shortly. The atmosphere was lovely, friendly and open, yet intimate. We got chatting with who I assumed was the owner, and he was recommending the wines to have with our... More

Second time we have been and it's awesome. It's not up there with the big London steakhouses but it's very good and pretty decent price for what you get. We both had a fillet steak with serving of chips and bottle of wine for under £70. Also was cooked to exactly how we wanted it. It's simple and great atmosphere,... More

We live just around the corner and popped in just to try somewhere new on a quiet Saturday afternoon. Have to say we really loved it. The food is full, tasty and whilst predominantly meat based also has good options for vegetarians. The menu isn't too fussy and the robust wine list is South American flavoured with a heavy hint...

Despite being a little lacklustre shortly after first opening (both in terms of food and service), teething troubles seem to now have been resolved and De La Panza is a very welcome addition to the local De Beauvoir restaurant scene. Probably now just as good as Buen Ayre. Particularly enjoyable are the opera nights!

Amazing Argentinian Steaks and treats. For all the sweet tooths out there you must try their pancake dessert (Panqueques) you wont be disappointed The service was exceptional and the wine selection was great. All in all great experience and highly recommend.

De la Panza serves delicious steak and Argentinian treats. The service and atmosphere are warm and the wine selection is also great. It is however, a bit on the pricey side and so perhaps best for special occasions, although they do a good tapas deal.

We always have the Parallida (spelling?) which is a hot plate of steak, grilled veg, provolone cheese, morcilla and chorizo for 2 people. I don't usually like chorizo but this stuff is different and delist. Haven't been for a few weeks and this dish has definitely got bigger, they've added Argentinian short ribs to it much to my boyfriend's delight.... More

This was my second visit, and service is still poor. However, the food was also disappointing this time. All employees just seem quite absent-minded. The simple things: Empty bottles were left on our table for ages, they served food before we had plates or cutlery, they didn't check if we'd like a water refill or any more drinks. Then, the...
