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.

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

Really good food and nice staff. We stayed there for almost two hours just enjoying the place and the view. The price is not very cheap, but definitely worth it!

Had a wonderful business dinner here. The restaurant comfortably accommodates large groups and offers traditional Argentine cuisine in a large dining room or on a patio overlooking the port. The beef was perfectly grilled though some cuts were a bit fatty. Overall a pleasant place to experience Argentine cuisine especially the beef.

It also offers an extensive menu with options for the ones who want to expend more money and also for the ones who don't wan't to pay a lot of money to have a great... More

There were 4 of us who ate here and everything that was ordered was terrible. My husband and I split a prime rib steak of which only parts of it were edible. The rest was just too tough or fatty. Our friend ordered a steak that was raw, so he sent it back to be cooked, but when he got... More

Compared to the restaurant up the line in the harbour called Cabana Las Lilas where they just ignored you these guys were brilliant . Constanza not only engaged with us to change our choice of steak "it will be too much for you - trust me" and... More
