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.

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

Service was great from Constanza and Max Ortez the sommelier from la cabana. 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

Nice food but our visit was spoiled by extremely bad service…the tables both sides of us suffered the same….I would not recommend coming here to be treated so badly….considering the price one pays….

We had the executive lunch set menu on a weekday at the terrace. It was wonderful - some empanadas appetizers, main course (we chose an entraña, the sorrentinos and the hamburguer) plus a heavenly panqueque de dulce de leche and a glass of wine all for 210 ARS apiece. They were really nice with the baby, brought colouring books and... More

We only had one night in Buenos Aires and wanted to try the famous Argentine steak, but there are so many to choose from in this beautiful waterfront setting. La Cabana, was about the fifth we came to and it looked inviting so we went in. The staff struck exactly the right balance of being attentive and providing a very... More

Recommended by hotel. Had great table by the canal (watch out for mosquitos as it gets dark). Lovely atmosphere and busy feel to the place. Ordered Argentinian steak and Malbec (nice but expensive by glass). Asked for medium rare. When arrived was more medium but good flavour so went with it. Dissatisfaction finally made us say something and we got... More

The place is beautiful. We had a table outside overlooking a channel of the Rio La Plata. The service was impersonal. The food was not so good. It was very expensive for the quality of the food and the service.

After 20 days in Buenos Aires and Punta del Este for our last dinner we wanted a very good steak. We decided to go to La Cabana because it was close to our hotel (at first, we was thinking about La Cabrera, but it was faraway). We were very, very pleased with the dinner. I took a rib eye steak...
