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.

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.

My husband and I recently had dinner at La Cabana and there was a good atmosphere and good service. The rustic pork sausage is a must. The salad choice is good. Steaks were cooked as requested. The server was polite and friendly. Overall a nice experience

Since our point of comparison was Brazilian meat it seems neither "Cabana las Lilas" or "La Cabana" impressed us. We went for dinner, no need for reservation or being on a waiting list. Our waitress was nice and attentive, unfortunately they didn't have my husbands choice of meat or the wine we wanted to try, but they suggested other options... More

Restaurant has been in business since 1935. Located in Puerto Madero area. Fantastic food, extensive wine list and excellent service. Beef is to die for. Fish, lamb, pork and poultry also available. All alacarte. Nicely spaced tables. Convenient location. I would definitely recommend as one of the better steak places in Buenos Aires.

Expensive place and bad service. They don't know how to manager tables quite well, forgetting orders... Waiters badly trained and the manager where not so interested to solve costumers issues... The singer were amazing, though.
