We absolutely loved everything about this restaurant. As soon as we arrived, and had only a 5 minute wait, they handed us a glass of champagne will we waited. The food was delicious, the service was great, we loved the interior design and signing our bottle of wine at the end of a meal to add to the decor!! One... More

Since January I've been here about 8 times. Steak is always cooked perfectly! Service is some of the best (by Argentine standards for sure!) Quality beef, nice atmosphere--highly recommend it! Try these: Bife ancho! Yum Ojo de bife Asado (ribs) Giant slice of flan for dessert--not too sweet like some can be. If you like kidneys the "riñones Don Julio"... More

There are many restaurants in Buenos Aires and I was lucky that my friend recommended this one. It is very popular and it is best to book in advance. If you don't manage this, they have a waiting list system where you can turn up and have a (free!) glass of sparkling wine while you wait. We took this option,... More

And that coming from a Brazilian it's not easy to say. Over 6 days I've stayed in Buenos Aires I've been to Don Julio 3 times. The Sirloin steak is divine. It's probably the most tender and juicy I've had. The starters are superb. Provoleta and empanadas are top notch. And then there's the wine. Every waiter is a sommelier... More

We went to Don Julio based on a recommendation from the hotel concierge plus doing our research on trip advisor. We were absolutely satisfied. The staff was attentive and friendly. The food was fantastic and the outdoor seating area was perfect for a romantic yet casual dinner experience. For two of us we had more parrilla meats than we could... More

We came here on recommendations from several sources that we read and also our hotel was walking distance in Palermo. We went on the first day in Buenos Aires, straight off the plane and boy, are we glad we did. Without repeating too much of what is already said, the restaurant is romantic and traditional, great service from attentive smart... More

If you want a good piece of meet for a decent price in a great atmosphere, that's the place to go. The waiters are very nice, the meet was fantastic. On Saturday night, the place is very crowded and the food can suffer a bit, but it was so good that we went three consecutive nights to have dinner there.... More

Ah, Don Julio... We arrived and got a bit scared by the queue. You gave us some sparkling wine to wait. We thought 30 minutes was a long wait, but you shortened it to 10. We sat down and thought it was pretty rowdy in here. You gave us a funny, witty waiter and poured us some delicious and cheap... More
