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.

Bife de Chorizo as good as it can get!

Excellent....cannot ask for a better service. The staff was very amiable, I really enjoyed the place for dinner. The "empanadas montañeras" were awesome as appetizers, very recommended. The wine list is very good and complete, having the most obvious choice of a Malbec from Mendoza. Dinner... read more

The steak was good,but as a total ,I think it was too expensive for me.Side dishes were average and the amount was too much for one person.Though I havn't order any alcoholic drinks,it cost me more than US$80.But if you want to eat good steak in this country there are many restaurants which offers good steak with good price.

If you like Chittlins, sweet breads, blood sausage and kidneys you'll love this place. I'm not a big fan of any of those. But the steak was very good. Ask for Juan great waiter and took the time to answer all our questions and provide onsite into the town of BA. I love the location , it's right along the... More

Inn the mid 1950's a group of USAF personal were flying support for the U-2 aircraft from BA. When I think of great meals over the past 55 years, I think of La Cabana and the baby beef and baked Alaskan. Thanks for the memories. A dinning experience for the ages.

This was my third visit in this restaurant and two first times I took "Lomo" steak. Please have a look on my previous review. "Lomo" was great. This time I wanted to take something different and I chose chicken. I should never have done that. There was no marinade nor any spices on the chicken and it was grilled far... More

From my other reviews, you can tell I am a Steak lover. On my recent trip to Buenos Aires, I stopped by La Cabaña, at Puerto Madero. It had been a few years i have visited this Steakhouse, in fact it had been at its previous location, near the Alvear Hotel. What can I say, the Steak was superb! Black... More

La Cabana's setting is reminiscent of rural Argentina- old world iron chandeliers and other antiques abound. The view of the waterfront from the outdoor patio is spectacular and it is heated so it's ideal even on cooler nights. We ordered steaks and a salad- it came with a great amuse bouche: empanadita, spoon of chicken soup, and cracker with cheese.... More

We went to La Cabana on the Waterfront at Puerto Madero on a recommendation from some discerning neighbours and friends. We were not disappointed. Excellent location with table, if you want, outside overlooking the water and the general quiet ambience of this area, just 10 minutes in a taxi from downtown BA. Thought the wine list was particularly good and... More

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighborhood Profile
Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect combination of old and new. The river provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away. Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this neighborhood a unique destination in a city as busy as Buenos Aires. The restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the docks make it a prime spot for nights out and have come to symbolize this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
