We found this restaurant by accident -- just walking down the street. It was a Monday about 7PM and we were the only people in the place. The proprietor is English speaking. Limited menu---mostly steak and chicken. I opted for the solomillo --the house special. Very excellent steak---potatoes with a delicate cheese sauce, great salad. Partner had the steak in... More

Very friendly service and good food. A family type atmosphere. We tried the main dish of the house, which is a nice tenderloin with potatoes, rice and salad. Very reasonable pricing.

A quirky steakhouse with great service and great steaks. The decor is dated, the chairs a bit uncomfortable but the service and food make up for it. The menu is limited, my wife ordered the chicken but they didn't have any, and they recommended the steak - solomillo. After all it is a steakhouse! It was one of the best... More

Not too expensive, particularly clean and well-presented. The food was very good, particularly the meat. The waiters were very friendly.

Ate here twice, once with my wife and once on my own. Both times we had steak - there really is little else worthwhile on the menu. It was ok but they really have to do something about making the meal a better experience. The first time we were the only guests ( it was a Saturday evening, 8 pm... More

I tried La Casa de Mi Abuela because of the enthusiastic recommendations here, and I was expecting a great meal. Unfortunately, it was just so-so. The host was very friendly and the service was attentive, but I was underwhelmed by the food. The steak was tender, but didn't have much flavor. The portions were generous, but it was just a... More

We decided to eat there after we read the reviews in tripadvisor and we were seriously disappointed. The famous house steak was not even close to the good argentinian steak. I ordered well-done steak and i got a half burned meat. It tasted mostly grill than the meat itself. The bread they brought before the meal was not fresh and... More

that's how it is advertised and it certainly was one of the best steaks we have ever had (sorry Argentina!) and at a very reasonable price too.
