The Best Restaurant I have ever been to!!

I have been to several restaurants around the world but this has topped that list by far. Honestly the best I have been to, so good that my wife and I went there to celebrate after we got married. The Bife de Chorizo is a must have for steak. The pasta is also very good and the wine is fantastic.... read more

We arrived at 8.30 and we were the onky peolle in the restaurant, we didnt realise that in buenos Aires dinner time is 9.30/10pm at the earliest. At the end of the meal we paid our bill, but...

Good salads to go with typical grilled meats choices and pastas. Generous portions. Good wine selection, including half bottles. Generous shareable deserts. As with most restaurants in Buenos Aires no English spoken but our friendly waiter worked hard to make sure we were happy with our selections. 50s ambience. Good value. Would go again.

Read in a blog it's the best in the city for this particular cut....spectacular flavor, a bit tough to cut, and available only in a portion sized for (at least) two people. Excellent service. Dessert portions are absurdly large..we recommend sharing the profiteroles if you like chocolate sauce. Afterwards a long walk will be in order, and the Casa Rosada... More

It was good, house wine glass was good, good beef, French fries and chimichurri sauce. Experience of being in a 50's restaurant, but not a must to go to. Ambience is nice!

My wife & I went for dinner. We both had the "Bife de Chorizo", followed by the "Tiramizu". The steaks were good quality, large and cooked perfectly. The potatoes and veg were a little overcooked. The Tiramisu was excellent. Although our waiter spoke no English he was very helpful and patient. Prices were reasonable. Definitely a good place to eat... More

Good Service, Nice ambience with lots of photos of Argentinan celebrities from other decades, tango music, tango feeling. One of the mos particular restaurants I ve been in Buenos Aires so far. The food is good, but nothing that stands out.

Nice waiter and authentic decor but the Bife de Choriza Especial was the worst meat we've had in our three weeks in BA. The Especial was supposed to be thicker than the regular chorizo. It was the thinnest steak ever and the taste was really off, like old meat.

On the Montevideo street, close to Corrientes, downtown Buenos Aires there are three good restaurants, namely Chiquilin, Lalo, and Pepito. These are typical restaurants of Buenos Aires, with local atmosphere, delicious dishes with the taste of home made food, and ...in all of them very kind staff. There restaurants are well known by locals because they are genuine and traditional.... More
