House Was Full, But The Hostess Promptly Found A Table To Accomodate My Wife That Is Pregnant. Fantastic Meat!

Located in an exclusive mall in Brasilia (Iguatemi), this restaurant is famous for its meats using argentinean cut (I love the Vacio), but I would add other highlights: the unique rustic decor, the wine list, the deserts (must try some of the "doce the leite" variations!!). During weekends there´s a duo that plays music there - which makes it even... More

Excellent steaks, Argentina style. Side dishes are also very well done and in large portions. The bread, however, is not as good as it is expected.

Pobre Juan is my favourite restaurant in Brasilia. It has an Argentinian vibe and operates a bit like a parilla. The restaurant itself if beautifully furnished with an amazing wine rack floating above the diners on the first floor. It is one of the few places in Brasilia where it is possible to get really good wine at moderate prices.... More

This is a very good restaurant with Argentinian Meat and very good side dishes. The service is excellent, the atmosphere very pleasant and the food delicious. But for all those features, they will really charge ( no less than 100 Brazilian Reais for each costumer, with couvert and dessert, no wine). I like it for very special ocasions

The best steak, charcoal grilled, I have ever tasted in Brasilia is that from Pobre Juan! My family and I are steak lovers and we all agree that one is the best we have in town. The meat cames from Argentina (according to the maitre). I have been in Argentina a couple of times and have had an wonderful "parrilla... More

This place serves great food, with some of the best service I've had in the whole of Brazil, at a very reasonable price compared to what you'd pay in say London. Delicious steak and very chic, Latin surroundings. Impressive.
