Given that this restaurant nestled in a tourist destination the service that we received was not only substandard but offensive.

It is a great surprise to find this argentinian restaurant in the midle of the old town; the terrace is fantastic for dinner al fresco. Good meat, the argentian entrecot is narvellous, wine list is very short. We were 4 and the bill went to 90€ inlcuding three desserts. I really think is worth the trouble. Dave

Lovely restaurant with rooftop-terrace for dinner and one of the best Solomillo-filets I have ever had! Compliments to the chef and staff!

We visited El Tanguito twice during our week visit to Marbella Old Town. We have been here many times when in Marbella and it never let's us down in terms of choice, location, quality and cost.

We always go here when in Marbella. The food and wine are always good and they do brilliant steaks. The owner and team are always very pleasant.

Was here with a group of friends and we all agreed that it had superb meat and was very good value. Traditional Argentine fare, so lots and lots of tasty meat. Good wine, friendly service, big portions. A shame I never got to go back!
