Description: LA CABAÑA is the most traditional restaurant in Buenos Aires. Established in 1935, it serves the best Argentine beef on the grill accompanied by excellent wine, a menu that turned La Cabaña into a source of inspiration for local cooking and that has been widely replicated all over the town.We invite you to enjoy any of our grilled beef cuts and, if you are willing to wait for an hour, you can have a unique experience tasting our classic "Great Baby Beef" - we suggest you do, savoring a glass of wine and in nice company.You do not get to know the purest Argentine cuisine without visiting our restaurant.

Visited here after being caught in torrential downpour! Chefs laughing at us as we arrived soaked through, waitress lovely and didn't laugh in front of us! English speaking waiting staff, helpful advice on ordering and delicious food when arrived! We shared a 1 kg steak between 3 and then the taster dessert plate, all was fabulous by the quality of...

This place was just "ok" - but I was expecting it to be a lot better given that it was recommended by a number of friends and is in all the guidebooks. Perhaps that was my first mistake...it's an overpriced place frequented by a lot of tourists. I was there in October with my boyfriend, who is a steak lover.... More

Looks like a nice restaurant from the outside. However, the food is average. The service is appalling. They placed our drinks out of reach but failed to notice when our glasses were empty and in need of topping up. Overall, great atmosphere but walked away wishing we hadn't bothered eating there. Slightly depressing experience.

went here with group for dinner. The meal was quite good - size of portions are ridiculously large - think about spliting the steaks with two people I thought the wine selection was excellent. But I did have issues with the timeliness of our service. Granted, they had to split our meal among our group - but we probably sat... More

I went there with some colleagues for a business lunch. The meat was great as also the starters and the wine line. The service was also very good. Only negatve point is that they are quite long to serve you, so, better to go for a relaxant dinner than for a business lunch in which the quick service is a... More

I went here in September with a group of 8 friends visiting from the USA. From the time we were seated until the time our stomachs exploded from all of the beef we ate, everything was flawless. The waiter was not only professional, but extremely friendly (rare for Buenos Aires). Rather than order individual plates, we ordered a variety of... More

I ate lunch and dinner here with two business colleagues. Both meals were very good. For dinner we went for the big steaks and we weren't disappointed. Delicious! Service was attentive. Very nice wine list. Lastly, excellent atmosphere near the canal.

I still miss another restaurant in Puerto Madero"la caballeriza", where I had a very nice experience. I recognize that restaurant and hotels are a matter of experience because each experience is unique (bad or good). la Cabaña was not a disappointment. Service was very good, food was ok+. Meat was very good. Morcilla was not so good. Sausage (chorizo) was... More

I've choose "Ojo de Bife" with "papas souflé" and I have no doubt this was one of the top 10 meals I've had in my life, it is really good food, the place is nice and the service is top.

The restaurant, the food and service are superb, and you can eat in the proch viewing Puerto Madero. At lunch they have an executive menu for 220 pesos that include breads, an apettizer, a choice of meat/fish with a choice of potatos or salad, desert, coffee, water and a wine glass. Its a great meal! Some other places are cheaper... More
