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.

The perfect steak

We ate there on February 2015. The place was really nice. It looked like a living room in a ranch. There were nice walls and carpets and it was not too big, felt like home. The service was okay but it would have been better if the waiters had been more awake. Food was excellent, best stakes we... read more

We ate at La Cabana our first night in Buenos Aires (first ever in S. America) expecting the legendary fabulous steaks - and were not disappointed. Excellent quality food, well presented and perfectly cooked. Not cheap at towards £100 for 2 people ( aperitif drinks and canapés, salads, steaks, and an excellent Malbec) - but making payment with dollars (rather... More

We ordered a 300gms (13ozs) rib-eye steak plus salad & mashed potatoes to share. Excellent marbled steak, nice salad, barely edible/uncooked dauphinoise potatoes served in error...soon corrected. Very friendly staff, happy to chat away in English or Spanish. Very attractive terrace which is on the north side of the building which makes it cool even on sunny days. Fairly expensive.

We went there for dinner as two couples upon the recommendations by the hotel staff. It was their recommendations #3 since they could not get us reservations at their #1 and #2. The location of the restaurant was just beautiful, with open air verandah tables right up against a canal. It was very romantic especially in the evenings. We chose... More

The restaurant's location on the canal in Peurto Madera is lovely, and if you are really really hungry, they have a lot of huge cuts of beef on the menu - several are 1000 grams, around 35 ounces. We had trouble finding a reasonably sized serving - ended up with the 300 gram rib eye, which was flavorful but quite... More

This is a typical Argentinean restaurant. It is located at a very safe and nice place at Puerto Madero. They have good selection of food. Quality is very good as is the service. The ambiance is nice and quite during lunch. Price is good as well

Had booked a table for 3 via the internet for Sunday lunch but when we arrived they didn't really care and we could choose our own table. I had studied the menu on the net and was looking forward to the sweetbreads which you rarely see on the menu in our part of the world. This dish certainly wasn't what... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant that was recommended by the concierge at our hotel. It was a wonderful fine dining experience. We got there early enough that we didn't need a reservation but I would recommend making one if you're going later. The entire dining experience was a success. The service, food and atmosphere were perfect. I ordered... More

Location is 10 min Taxi Drive from the center at Puerto Maredo. Not all servents speaks English, but they manage.. We had 4 dishes for 4 people and it was not possible to finish them (very big portions). May I go again? Absolutely, let them choose the vine for you, just ask for your expectations.. Enjoyed.
