Don Julio is a great Argentine Parrilla! They specialise in sirloin which is huge. A half portion is plenty for one person! The wine menu is a great accompaniment to the enormous portions. Also fish and veggie options for non - meat eaters! Made sure you make a reservation as this place is busy every night of the week! Highly... More

We went to Don Julio based on its high ratings on this site and its recommendation on others. Overall we were very underwhelmed. We book a reservation ahead of time, which is a good idea as we saw people waiting for oat least an hour n a half while we ate. It has a neat atmosphere with all the wine... More

Certainly one of the best. No wonder why is always crowded. In this place you will try the local flavor of a traditional and casual Argentinian restaurant. I tried the T-Bone and was amazing. The service is slow as in all Buenos Aires but very efficient. If you are in the trendy neighborhood of Palermo, give a shot to this... More

Big crowds here so be prepared to wait for a sub par meal. Obviously popular so maybe we just picked the wrong day but I think the speed with which they dole out the meat prevents them from preparing it correctly. Tough tough meat. Even writing about it makes me gag.

Great meal!!! The empanadas are the best I have ever taste. The morcilla is also amazing! Me and my wife had an enormous piece of vacío for a little more than 100 pesos. The french fries are also delicious, and the wine list has a lot of options! Very good value for money! The best parrilla of Buenos Aires, together... More

This was the best parrilla I visited while in Buenos Aires. We waited for 15-20 minutes for our table, but they gave us each a free glass of champagne during the wait. Exceptional steak and excellent service. Highly recommended.

We had a fantastic meal at Don Julio. It is absolutely mandatory to reserve a table ahead of time. The appetizers were excellent- sundried tomatoes on brie on top of churizo sausage, portabello mushrooms. The steaks were some of the best we've ever had and we're fro Alberta, Canada as in "Alberta Beef." The wait staff were very professional. Overall,... More
